Thanks very much for posting a couple of replies. I appreciate the helpful info! I'm descended through Jacob and Mary (Lewis) Smith's son Reuben (1770-1856) who married Elizabeth Moss (1778-1862).
I recently got some DAR confirmation that Jacob Smith's wife was Mary Lewis, but like you I too still need something that shows Mary Lewis Smith is the daughter of Gershom and Mary (Maltby) Lewis. Thank you - it would be great if you could please share the record copies that ought to indicate where the Lewis-Smith info is documented! It's awfully nice of you to offer to share the info when you receive it.
Here's what I have from the DAR...
Birth: CT 1738
Death: CT 14 Apr 1807
Patriot Pensioned: No
Widow Pensioned: No
Children Pensioned: No
Heirs Pensioned: No
Spouse: (1) Mary Lewis
Also, from the "Lineage Book: National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Vol. XVIII" (published in 1897): Page 331 has "... Jacob Smith and Mary Lewis, his wife... Jacob Smith, (1738-1807), served as a sergeant in Capt. Amos Barnes' company, Hooker's Regiment, for service on the North River, 1777. He was born and died in Northfield, Conn."
Can you please tell me what the Mayflower Society was able to tell you about Jacob Smith and Mary Lewis? Like you, I know that the Tilley/Howland Mayflower lineage comes into the Smith line through Mary (Lewis) Smith's father Gershom Lewis, but I didn't know the Mayflower Society already has confirmation that she is Gershom's daughter.
By the way, I have photos of Jacob and Mary (Lewis) Smith's gravestones. Feel free to email me directly if you'd like me to send them to you.
Thanks again for your reply.
