EST 1654 in Northampton, Hampshire, Massachusetts to Sarah Unknown.

There are a few other children of "Christopher Smith" baptized and/or buried in Stratford on Avon, Warwick, England. These records are in the Registers of Stratford on Avon, but I do not know if this Christopher was their father or a different Christopher. It might explain why this Christopher had no children in New England. These include Rich bp Oct 8, 1640; Christopher bp Dec 12 1641; Kathrine bp June 18, 1643 bur. Dec 21, 1652; Elizabeth bp Jan 19, 1644 and buried March 24, 1650; Alice bp May 3, 1646, William bp March 25, 1650; and Charles bur Aug 3, 1652.

Why is "immigrant" under nicknames in data?

It's obvious he migrated because right at the top of the bio is the PGM project box.

Hi Chris, There are several merges needed here for the children of Christopher Smith. Can you do this, or may I do it for you? We know by yDNA tests and the Registers of Stratford on Avon that these kids belong to these parents. Thank you, Kitty

Smith-59991 and Smith-2077 appear to represent the same person because: Newly viewed books (Registers of Stratford on Avon) clearly show the children of Christopher and Alis Gibes Smith. These two profiles are duplicates that need to be merged.

I believe the 2/13/1692 death date is for this Christopher Smith, d in Northampton, MA. Please read his Biography section for the resource information I have relied upon: Please supply documentation if you believe this is in error.

It seems unlikely that two Chris Smiths would die on the same day.
