Roger, I finally found Michigan Memories. There is no submitter's name listed. It doesn't say Reuben's father was Ralph. This is definitely the same family I was speaking of. Have you any clues about who Reuben's father was? from Ruth

I don't know if this is anything, but I am now living in the Reuben B. Smith house in Westfield, Ma. built irca 1840. His nickname was Shaver Smith and his wife and daughter died here. He also had 2 sons and left the house to them. Could that help you?

Judith, Thank you so very very much for your message. How wonderful that you know about the builder of your house and his sons. You are certainly living in history. I don't think it was our Reuben unfortunately who built your house.

Our Reuben Smith went to NY soon after the Rev War and then to MI with his sons early 1800s. Our Reuben was one of the Vermont Sufferers who were granted land in Chenango Co NY after the Rev War. We still have never found any birth record for him. He was born in 1755 in your town. Thanks so much. from Ruth

Hi Ruth
Ralph Smith came to America in 1633 from Hingham England.
He was one of the original Settlers of Hingham Massachusetts. There are hundreds of us that are descended, and you still maybe one of us, but your Reuben was not Ralphs son, and your dates are wrong. I would need more information to tell you more. There is data that says Ralph had two brothers, and I am in contact with their descendents as well. Good luck. Franklin

Franklin, We are aware of the Ralph Smythe who came to New England in 1600's. Our son purchased a reprint of that booklet about that family. We were so disappointed we could not find our Reuben in that booklet. Our Reuben filed and received a Revolutionary War Soldier pension in which he tells quite a bit about his early life. In 1785 he was among the "Vermont Sufferers" who received land in Chenango County New York. One of our cousins has created a website for Reuben Smith's family at http://members.tripod.com/debbie.russell/id17.htm.

Maybe Reuben's father was not named Ralph Smythe but everything else our Aunt Maxine has told us has been verified by documents. Thanks so much for your interest. Would any of your contacts happen to know about our Reuben?? Thanks so much for your comments. Ruth Smith

Is this the Ralph Smith who came on the "Elizabeth Bonventure" in 1633, and had a son named Samuel who married Mary Hopkins, daughter of Stephen Hopkins of the Mayflower?

I am a direct descendant of Ralph Smythe who came over in 1633 from England to Hingham, Massachusetts. Does anyone of a family tree of Ralph or other family members in the Smith line? I have started a family tree, but it is only around 100 people thus far.
