I descend from the Hollister-Treat line, and have been trying to find out about Richard Smith of Wethersfield. Two daughters if a Richard Smith married Stoddards in Wethersfield but I was unable to make a connection with Mary, who became the wife of Matthias Treat. You mention 'the first Richard Smith"- I have missed some the discussion, could you translate that for me?Have you more information?
PS - I have Stephen Hollister, married to Abigail, with parents Stephen H and Joanna Treat. Someone else mentioned that his father was another Stephen Hollister.
