Happy 339th, Grandfather Smith!

339 years ago, 12 October 1680, in Providence, Rhode Island, my 7 times great grandfather, Joseph Smith was born to  Edward and Anphillis Angell Smith. Joseph married Patience Mowrey, daughter of Nathaniel and Joannah Inman Mowrey, in 1706, also in Providence, Rhode Island.  I only have record of one child, their son, Jacob (1706) [my 6 times great grandfather].  This is the ancestral line of Jesse Jenks’ mother, Mary Smith.  Jesse is ancestor I was able to use for membership into the Sons of the American Revolution.  Joseph’s father, Edward Smith was born 3 April 1636, also in Providence, Rhode Island.  His grandparents, Christopher and Alice Smith migrated from Lancaster, England prior to 1636!

Grandfather Joseph Smith died on 17 February 1734, in Providence, Rhode Island. 

About Pat Shaul

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
