Reposting my original question because this section didn't print all the information. Hope it works this time.
Researching genealogy of Elizabeth "Betty" (Marston) Robinson of Brentwood, NH (wife of Josiah Robinson). Believe Betty is my 4th gr-grandmother via her daughter Nancy Smith Robinson (1788-1874).
Nancy is my 3rd gr-grandmother. Verified thru her marriage to Elijah Purington (1782-1849) of Epping, NH. Records (both marriage and birth records of Nancy and Elijah's children) identify Nancy as having maiden names "Smith" or "Robinson" and that she was born in Fremont, NH (formerly Poplin).
Probate record from Fremont (Poplin) for Josiah Robinson, identifies wife as Betty Robinson. In will (probate date 25 Aug 1803), Josiah says, "I give unto my wife's Daughter, Nancy Smith, fifty dollars to be paid her at the age of eighteen years, or upon her marriage, if before that term."
Working on theory that Nancy Smith lived for period of time in Fremont with mother, Betty and Josiah Robinson. May be reason Nancy's records identify her maiden name as "Smith" or "Robinson".
Prior to marriage in 1790, Betty and Josiah were in previous relationships. Haven't found any information regarding identity of Nancy's father (Mr. Smith).
Wondering if anyone in WikiTree Community has information on identity of Nancy Smith's father. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you, Dan.
