Hi, Shirley,

We are probably related on the Smith side if we go back far enough. My grandmother was Hattie Smith; you can see her picture on last week's "Women" photo challenge. Her mother was Anna Houghtaling and her father was John Richard Smith, Family Search LD91-RMX. His Smith ancestors were in New York before the Revolution, but I don't know where they were before that.

When I looked at your page here, I spotted some Filles du Roi. I have some too, though their names escape me at the moment. Hattie Smith married my grandfather Arthur Auger. His parents Orville Auger and Melanie Cartier came from Quebec to Cohoes, New York, about 1881. My great grandfather is the only Orville Auger in the Family Search tree, so he is easy to find.

Of course, if you go back far enough, everyone is related. My son, who is a geneticist, assures me I can claim kinship with Cher Ami, a heroine of World War I who received the Croix de Guerre. (She has a Wikipedia page.)

Thank you Shirlea for highlighting OPC’s on G2G, they are an excellent source for all looking for their ancestors post-1600, a shame they don’t cover all UK counties, my home village namely Denbury, Devon, England is listed but with no information and yet our local 13th century church lists valuable data on the village website I will ask on our monthly magazine to see if anyone collates the information. Once again thank you for highlighting.

Hi Shirlea, thanks so much for your help with George Munroe, and George Schofield. I'm not sure if Schofield was getting into the fish mongering business, but I don't think so. Not from what I've been told. Do you have a link or source with regards to the assault of his wife? I'd be interested to see that.

Thank you for your suggestion on Josephine Page.
It looks like my guess for Samuel Unwin's age at marriage might be an underestimate. Please feel free to edit if you have evidence for his birth.
