2024John SMITH who migrated from MA to RI with Roger Williams
- Jan 3, 2009Anyone know of the John SMITH who was expelled with Roger Williams
from Massachusetts...? If so, do you have his descendants...? Any of
them match mine listed below in paragraph four...?
A correspondent in my LETSON ancestry wrote the following paragraph in
an introduction of a book we are placing on the web. I was not aware
of this possible connection to Roger Williams.
Re: Mary Smith's ancestry. This is something I wish could be
established. There have been some attempts to do this, but it appears
that they are lacking in primary documentation. Some go back to the
John Smith who was expelled from Massachusetts along with Roger
Williams. Others offer different lines.
I inherited the following; haven't had time or the initiative to
attempt to prove or disprove any of it yet. I would think SMITH would
be a tremendous challenge. My SMITH connection is through this Mary
(SMITH) who married John LETSON. They were my 5th G Grandparents.
Mary's parents were John Smith and an unknown. Her grandparents were
Jeremiah and Mary (GEREARDY) SMITH. Her g grandparents were another
John SMITH and an unknown. Her gg grandparents were another Jeremiah
SMITH and an unknown. Her ggg grandparents were Joseph "The Weaver"
and Lydia (GARDINER) SMITH. 4G's John "The Miller" and Sarah
(WHIPPLE) SMITH. 5G's were John "The Miller" and Alice (Unknown)
SMITH. This last couple is supposedly my 12th G Grandparents. Most
of these folks were in RI.
