Glad you wrote. I have searched the Guy Smith family for this Samuel and Samuel Smith who m. Sarah Ward is the only Samuel I can find. After searching the Haynes,Leftwich, Early, Buford,Squires etc. families,it became more obvious that another Smith family (connected to Guy or not)was also in the area of Bedford Co Va. Thomas Smith who m. Elizabeth Haynes, Frances Haynes who M. John? Smith , Coleman Smith, Samuel Smith m. Martha Hatcher whose brother John Smithm. Martha's sister.These families intermarried with the Divers, Ferguson,Greers, Meadors,Holland and said to be descendants of John Smith and Frances Haynes or Burks. I was pretty convinced already that this was the Smith family that I was searching for and more so after reading the will of John Hail and his relationship with Samuel Smith and Martha. A lawsuit against Samuel Smith Jr. shows this Samuel'sfather, Samuel Sr.in Franklin area around 1766. The Stephen Wood who had the lawsuit was from Franklin Co Va. and the only Stephen Wood is the one who m. Ann Smith dau. of Samuel)and his father Stephen Wood m. Ann Johnson This Samuel Smith Sr. may have been the Samuel whose dau. Margaret m. Stephen Heard. This Heard family intermarried with the Woodcocks, Meador, Wilkinson,Standifers and descendants of Francis Smith and Ann Adams. Thomas Smith who m. Elizabeth Haynes is also said to be a descendant of Guy, but I think he was more connected to this other Smith family, who may or may not be the descendants of Nicholas Smith. I have searched the huge Major Lawrence Smith family,George "burn't face" Smith family, Stephen J.K. Smith family whose descendants were in Surry Co N. C.and some in Grayson Co, Va. later on. I will continue to search for more leads I still have to find proof of this John Hail's father . I appreciate your help. Hope you continue your search !
