It was 9 May 1641 in Providence, Rhode Island, when Anphillis Angell was born to Thomas and Alice Ashton Angell. Then, 22 years to the day later, in 1663. she married Edward Smith, the son of Christopher and Alice Smith. The two were the parents of Joseph (1680), my 7 times great grandfather. This line of descent goes down to Mary Smith who was the wife of my Sons of the American Revolution Ancestor entry, Jesse Jenks.
This was definitely a time when 8 times great Grandfather Smith would be in big trouble (by today’s standards) if he forgot an anniversary or birthday since they were on the same day!!
