his wife was Ann. Sons, Robert, Daniel, John, Sarah Addams, Silvanus, Eve (Evi?), daughters negro Christian Cordeary, granddaughter Deborah Cordeary. Sister Deborah, son-in-law John Squire.
Could his father be Simon Smith from Hartford, CT?.

Earl on your Atlantic Co. Ancestors of Robert M. Smith (1808-1861): father: Thomas Smith 1785-1816, father: Elias Smith ca. 1738-1806, mother: Sarah Ireland. Elias's father: Elisha Smith ca 1705-1775, mother:Zeruiah Billings. Zeruiah's father: Simon Billings. Elisha's father: Simon Smith. Simon Smith's father: Joseph Smith. I do not have the documentation for this, it came from a 5th cousin who is very active in the Atlantic County Historical Society and has writen a book on his family.
This website ruled him out for me as father candidate.
but maybe this is not the same Simon Smith; I do remember an Elisha Smith in a Simon Smith estate so look again: This website confirms Simon and there is DNA also but it is from England and KY.
