Three different wiki profiles # 36, 149 and 1613, include Bethia Goldsmith, daughter of Thomas Goldsmith, same birthdates and location. But different husbands. I am looking for the wife of a Samuel Wells. Many sites list Bethia Goldsmith, but with no source material. One of the profiles here lists Samuel too - but with no source material. The others list a Hubbard etc. Anyone who can help? Thank you in advance.

There is more than one Bethia Goldsmith.

It is possible there is more than one Beth/Bethia Goldsmith with a father named Thomas.

Goldsmith is a common name.

Well that may be. But at least 2 of the Bethia Goldsmiths I mentioned (36 and 1613) have exactly the same birth and death date, as well as the same father. THAT seems unlikely. Others have asked this question too. As my question querried, I am looking for the Bethia Goldsmith that (supposedly) married Samuel Wells. Anyone have any information for me?

What I was suggesting was that the profiles for Bethia could be conflated. One of them did marry an Isaac Hobburd. So maybe the way to separate them and get the info you want for a marriage to Samuel Wells, is to investigate and source both profiles. Which would prevent confusion in the future.

Name: Bethi Goldsmith
Spouse Name: Isaac Hobburd
Marriage Date: 1720
Marriage Place: Southold, Suffolk, New York
 
Marriage ID: 2220299932

Thank you. Have done. Still can't make sense of it all. Hoping someone can help.
there are two Thomas Goldsmiths that have been conflated

one born 1670, died 1706

one born 1686, died 1743

spouses and children have been misaligned and mixed up
Bethia that married Sam Wells belongs to the 1686 Goldsmith, son of John Goldsmith and Ann Wells. There were several Goldsmith/Wells marriages in this extended family

there are also 3 John Goldsmiths who have been conflated as the fathers of the several Thomas Goldsmiths with the wives and children of the Johns misaligned

I have to quit now, Miss Marion

all these mix-ups gave me a headache

gotta take some warm milk and go away for a while

big hug and smooch  heartkiss

Thanks Eddie, big smooches to you too

      According to this book

      William Wells of Southhold and his descendants, A.D. 1638 to 1878

      Samuel Wells married both Bethia and Martha Goldsmith

      He married Bethia in 1723

      Bethia died 1738 and he married Martha in 1739

      second wife Abigail was the daughter of Charles Booth and Mary Mappam
      Bethia Terry was the daughter of Richard Terry and Abigail Lines
      I think the Bethia who married Hubbard is not a daughter of Thomas
