Re: Pawling NY SLOCUM's
Helen; Just found the following.
John Smith maried 1st, Deborah Howland. He married 2nd, Ruhaman Kirby, daughter of Richard Kirby. A son (by which marriage ?) was Deliverence who married Mary....? He was one of a family of four sons and four daughters and died in Dartmouth, N.P. (New Plymouth Colony ?) Jan 15, 1729.
Children by above, were, Deborah, their 2nd child and 1st of 5 daughters. She married Eliezer Slocum.
Next was George who married Elizabeth Allen. He was the 1st of 4 sons.
Next was Humphrey who married Mary Wilcox.
George and Elizabeth Allen had Deliverence who married Hannah Daughter of Jonathan Smith.
Later, following Humphrey and Mary Wilcox line we havea Lucy Anna Crapo who married Humphrey H.H.C. Smith in 1858.
It does not seem that the above Smith families were tied into Abigail, however I could be wrong.
In my index of the Slocum book, edition 1, under surnames, there are 51 persons named Smith, and I don't have the time, right now, to see who was who.
I still think I'd better try and check the Dartmouth Town Hall records to see what I might find.
