Note: There was some speculation that he was a son of Richard Smith and Rebecca Buswell. I just posted this on Richard's profile, "The children of Richard and Rebecca Buswell Smith are listed as (TAG 25 page 126) Richard (1617-1690); Susannah (1624-1692); Mary (1627- ); Joseph (1629-1673); Abigail (1632- ); and Jonathan (1635-aft 1711). I think Nicholas and Rebecca need to be removed as children without supporting documentation. "

    I do not think we have documentary evidence that Nicholas was a son of Rebecca Buswell Smith. I am disconnecting these parents for lack of documentation. I believe the FindAGrave transcription is in error. Please provide documentation before reconnecting parents for Nicholas. Thank you!
