GeeI don't even know that particular Smith to Horsey marriage that you mention (Edward Smith)and I should if it was in Worcester Co., MD.As for the issue at hand it is intrigingbecause of the surnames, but unfortunately I have no information on a connection. I will forward your post to another researcher (a cousin of mine Horsey wise) to see if she has encountered anything.The intriging matter is that the name of 'Smith Horsey' ( reverse of your man's) is well know in the Maryland Horsey family. In fact we know of at least 5 such named individuals in the descendancy.But none connect that I know of.THe first such individual was the brother of my ggggg grandfather, the two of them sons of Samuel Horsey, Sr. b abt 1655 in Northampton Co., VA. Samuel was one of the five sons of the immigrant Stephen Horsey, Sr. and his wife Sarah (widow of Michael WIlliams, Sr.). But his family is well tracked and known as is the great majority of the MD Eastern shore Horseys of that era, though mysteries still remain.As for tracking Horseys who migrated away from the MD/VA Eastern shore, there I am afraid I have no real knowledge and do not know anyone else who has tracked these, though someone may have..
Anyway I will forward your message to my Horsey cousin just in the remote chance it makes a connection..
