I am researching the John C. Smith family from Webster and Dudley, MA. John was born in Wilkes-Barre, PA in 1840 of Irish immigrants.The family moved to Danielson, CT and John married Elizabeth McGuinness in 1860 and they settled in Webster, MA. The children were Margaret Ellen, John Francis, Thomas, Ellen, Elizabeth and Francis. Little is known of the families of these children. I would especially like to locate John's great grandson James Smith, born in the Providence area in 1924. His parents names were Thomas and Beatrice. Other names connecting the family are Welch/Walsh, Miner and Lacourse. Latest email address is email@example.com (May 2009).
