Mary Marvin, daughter of John and Sarah Marvin, was born in Lyme, Connecticut, on 23 July 1696.[1] John Marvin and Sarah Graham had married in Lyme on 7 May 1691.[1]

Mary Marvin married Samuel Smith before 1719. She survived him by four decades. She made her will on 17 January 1777; it was proved on 9 June 1777. Children of Samuel Smith identified by Jacobus are:[2]

  1. Lemuel
  2. Samuel, married Lucretia Smith, daughter of Josiah Smith
  3. Sarah, married Isaac Tubbs
  4. Mehitable, married Jonathan Gillett
  5. Mary, married Joseph Way
  6. Lucretia, married James Huntley on 21 August 1750
  7. Amy, married Daniel Miner
  8. Silas

Alven M. Smith also identified Miriam Smith, wife of Daniel Beckwith, who died in Marlow, New Hampshire in 1809 at the reported age of 88, as a presumed child of this family, noting "She seems linked with the SmithGee-Huntley and Beckwith families in Lyme,Conn., and after the death of her husband followed them to Marlow, N. H.,1765."[3]
