Biography

Name: Benjamin Fletcher Smith. Stated on death index of Thomas Smith. [1]

Marriage details; on death certificate of Thomas Smith his mothers maiden name is Knight. Mary Ann McSweeney may have had a previous marriage before marrying Benjamin.

There's a bit of doubt about this generation of great great grandparents. It is possible that Benjamin Smith was married to X Fletcher (probably a non-catholic) and X Nash was married to X McSweeney because Jane Nash was said to be Irish Catholic.

Benjamin had two children with Mary Ann Knight in Launceston, Tasmania: a son 2 Jun 1857[2] and a daughter 2 Aug 1858[3]. Neither child was named at birth.
