>From the Wesleyan Methodist Marriage Records 1833-1894:
Henry Smith, a resident of Maccan married on March 12, 1839 in Maccan to
Elizabeth Boss also of Maccan.
Township records of Southampton
John Wesley Smith, born in Maccan, April 10, 1841, parents Henry and
This Henry Smith (parents unknown) and Elizabeth Boss had 5 children:
John Wesley Smith (1841)
George Smith (1849)
Alfred Smith (1855)
Henry (the Bachelor) Smith, son of Benjamin and Hannah (Merrill) 1836,
d Oct 31, 1896,
60 years old and is buried at Shinimicas.
Henry Smith 1813/1815 d 1878 as a bachelor. Some researchers have him
as the husband of Elizabeth Boss (with 5 children). If indeed he was a
bachelor, then who is the Henry that married Elizabeth in 1839?
Let�s look at Elizabeth Boss. Did she first marry a Henry Smith in
1839, have 5 children, last born in 1855, then in 1856 (at age 38) marry
the other Henry Smith and then have 3 more children. Are both
Elizabeth�s the same person? Did the first Henry die about 1855?
