Elizabeth Welborn Smith. Who is she?

She seems to be the wife of Richard (or perhaps Harry) Smith. Except none of the Richard Smiths have a known wife Elizabeth. And we have dups.  Does anyone have a clue? Should we merge her into the known wife? or merge, disconnect, and leave her hanging.

I have no information about his parents.
Thanks Vic
And I find no mention of her in the GM series or any NEHGS-hosted journals.  I don't think she existed.  I think we should retain one profile of her and mark her as Uncertain or disproven existence with explanatory links in the bio. Otherwise she's likely to pop up again. But merge the others away.

Just a point it says he married Joan in Rhode Island at the top, but in the bio it says Gloucester, England.

Thanks, Marion.  I've fixed that.
