Debbie - I hope this reaches you, but its in response to your December 08, 2002posting on genealogy.com.
It looks like we are related, as my great-grandmother was Mary Jane Smitherman - sister of Alice, dau. of Charles Smitherman and Jane Quinn. Mary Jane was born 1870 - She appears with the rest of the family (those above, plus Thomas (14), Charls jnr (13) Eliza (5) and William (2) living at 3 See Ho Square, Tonbridge in the 1881. Interestingly, one of the witnesses on Mary Jane's marriage certificate was "A Curtis" - presumably Albert, your great grandfather !
Mary Jane married my great grandfather, Charles Osborne, in Tonbridge on 19 November 1894; but unfortunately he died in 1899 - just 4 months before my grandfather was born. She later remarried into Mitchell family.
