Hi Ann, it's me you long related cousin Jodie. I thought I would look here too, myself. Did you read any of the posts'? There is a Smiddy who was a Rev that oversaw a wedding.
I'm sure you know that we were in the Montgomery, Va in the 1700's. So who is this Ben Smiddy, I wonder that Betty has found. There is a beer in Scottland named Smiddy did you know that? How odd eh? I hope one day we will come across how our long lost immigrant came to the New World. I was hoping to find some manifest of this mans travels somewhere. I will let you know how the reunion goes.
