Timothy, where did you obtain the info that Vesta M ROY, NH Gov, was the d/o Frank SMITH.I Googled Vesta, and I find no mention of her parents, only that she was b Dearborn MI & m to Albert L ROY. Since genforum no longer notifies, the volunteers have no idea if you've read our posts.FYI volunteers research all states, so not necessary to post mutiple times.
I did find this. 11-17-1945 Alfred Leo ROY m. Vesta COWARD, Duval Co FL, by consent of her mother, Mildred COWARD [of Bellingham WA] Another FL marriage record names Percy A [Alton] COWARD as father.
