Stephen Francis Smith, b. 3 Jan 1808 in Wiltshire England, d. 3 Oct 1864 in Wisconsin and his wife Abigail Kirkman, b. 1 Mar 1816 in Lancaster, Lancashire, England, d. 10 Nov 1872 in Wisconsin, are my great great grandparents. There daughter, Martha Jane Smith, b. 19 Nov 1842 in Oxford, Wisconsin, d. 13 April 1920 in Clintonville, Waupaca, Wisconsin married 1st Samuel Houston Collins who was b. 13 Feb 1836 in Washington, Sullivan, New Hampshire and d. 15 Oct 1879 in Clifton Wisconsin. Martha Jane married 2d aft. 1880 E. W. Bennett.
I have seen reference to the fact that Stephen Smith's parents were Thomas Smith and Hannah Canning but have not yet found documentation for this information. I have seen reference to the fact that Abigail Kirkmans parents were Peter Kirkman and his wife Ann but again have yet to document that. Any information you may have discovered on their ancestry would be welcome. Joan
