First Name:

About Our Family Research

I've traced the family back to the Smiths of Smithtown but
am not able to find the Dutch side. Zephaniah Conklin Smith
married Ann Eliza-and that's where the problem is. Her last
name has been spelled Rekeman-Ruyckman-Rickeman. She was
Dutch descent and from the New York area. They married
before 1842 as that is the year his namesake Zephaniah
Conklin Smith (Jr.) was born and I therefore assume was
the eldest child.
Zephaniah Conklin Smith Jr. served in the army and navy
during the Civil War. He was in the 71st New York State
Militia and on the Vicksburg, the North Carolina and the
Grand Gulf while in the navy. If anyone has any information
on him,or on the Dutch side, please contact me.
