Thanks Gerry.

The 3 I found were from Susan Hill’s Cemetery Book.

I’ve added your 4 in and am in catch up mode slowly building the family from scratch.

Dave,

Your note below lists 3 children for James W. Smith & Bessie Ann (Ripley) Smith:
J. Gilbert Smith
Russell B. Smith
Vincent Smith

I think there are 4 more:
Walter William Smith, born Dec 1886, marr. on 07-Jun-1910 to Rella Evelina Ripley
Ivy Smith, born 20-Dec-1888
Ethel Olive Smith, born 16-May-1892, marr. on 03-Mar-1915 to William Lester Mitchell
Roy M. Smith, born Sep 1903, died 09-Jun-1973

Here is Roy's obituary from the June 11, 1973 Halifax Chronicle Herald:
MACCAN - Roy M. Smith, 69, Maccan, Cumberland County, died Saturday in Highland View Hospital, Amherst.  Born at Nappan, he was a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. James W. Smith.  A retired farmer, he was a member of Nappan United Church.  He was the last surviving member of his immediate family.  The body is at Furlong's Funeral Home, Amherst, where funeral service will be held Tuesday at 4 p.m.  Rev. Gordon Decker will officiate.  Burial will be in Fenwick.

Hope this  helps,
Gerry
