Hello. This is a tangle. I initiated an unmerged match between William Smith [[Smith-146066]] and William Smith [[Smith-132530]],
I have no information about William Smith's death date or place after his marriage to Jane Underwood [[Underwood-169]] at Warrington Monthly Meeting in Lancaster County, Pa., 29th of 8th month 1747. William was the son of John Smith, deceased. The profile [[Smith-132530]] has William's death date as before 1809 in Union District, South Carolina. Can anyone confirm that the William and Jane Smith in South Carolina are William Smith and Jane Underwood?
Although I'm confident that the father of the William Smith [[Smith-132530]] who married Jane Underwood [[Underwood-169]] was named John Smith, I wrote about 20 years ago in a research report I called "Deep Smith Roots" that I had been looking for John Smith and I laid out why none of the John Smiths I found appeared to match. The only sibling of William that I found was Joseph Smith [[Smith-44576]] who married Rachel Beals [[Beals-69]] 7th of 12th month 1752 at Warrington Monthly Meeting in York County, Pa. I recycled a detached John Smith [[Smith-44576]] and set him as the father of William and Joseph.
Someone gave my "Deep Smith Roots" research report as a source for a John Smith that is the father of William [[Smith-146066]]. This report does not prove anything about William's mother or siblings other than Joseph. Maybe I should post the "Deep Smith Roots" report as a free space page.
At present I am inclined to reject the unmerged match, as William Smith [[Smith-146066]] has no brother named Joseph and the sources are inadequate.
