Did Richard Townsend have a daughter named Barbara b. abt 1703-1711? On many Ancestry Family Trees there is a Barbara Townsend that supposedly married a John Smith in Virginia abt 1737. Her birth is listed as Oyster Bay and death in Egg Harbor. I doubt this information as the source doc. for her are actually under the name of Mary Smith, same birth and death locations. I am also skeptical that someone from that region would marry in VA then go back to NJ during this time period. This info has been copied to many other family trees. I cannot find any other sources to substantiate or disprove this info. This Barbara and John Smith had a daughter named Margaret, b 1743. Any info is appreciated.
