I disconnected Anna Barbara as the child of William Smither. Her father was *not* William Smither, who was born in Maryland in the United States. Her father would have been born in Germany, probably in the Darmstadt or Württemberg areas. Their family had lived in the area for generations before immigrating to Russia in 1765. As Anna Barbara was only 10 years old that year, she likely traveled with her parents or with her widowed mother. Her father could not have been born in Maryland. Hope this explanation helps. If you have any questions, please let me know.
