John Cornell's wife Hannah could not have been identical with Hannah Smith, the daughter of Jeremiah Smith, as Rev. John Cornell's genealogy suggested. The 1698 Census of Hempstead shows John Cornell and wife Hannah, along with children John, Elizabeth, William, and Edward. Jeremiah Smith's daughters Hannah and Elizabeth were still unmarried and living with their father in 1698. Jeremiah's household on the 1698 census consisted of Jeremiah Smith, Hannah Smith, Jeremiah Smith, Jr., Hannah Smith, Elizabeth Smith, Ruth Smith, John Smith, Ann Smith, Richard Smith, and Thomas Smith. Obviously since John and Hannah Cornell were already married and with children in 1698 and Jeremiah Smith's daughter Hannah was unmarried and still living in her father's household at that time, they could not be the same woman.
