Ann Smith married Becham

I'm looking for marriage information on Ann Smith, who married a Becham. I would like to know her husband's name and the date they married if you have it.

Ann is mentioned by her married name in her father John Smith's 1849 Loyalhanna, Westmoreland Co., PA will.

John Smith's (b. btw. 1760-1770; d. 1849) wife was Catharine Gooden (b. abt. 1777).

I do not know Ann's birth date, but guesstimate that it might have been around 1808-1810. It could have been earlier or later, but not as likely later. Five children were named in John's will, with Ann one of them. Two others were interspersed among the children's names, as if they were children, but their relationship to John was not given. I arrived at the 1808-1810 date by working backwards from my ancestor Benjamin Smith's known birth date and birth order. I backed up from 1818 2 years for each of the seven "children." That would put Ann's birth date as 1810. But that does not mean it WAS 1810.

Loyalhanna is on the border of Armstrong Co., where John's grandson Michael Harvey Smith was born as son 2 in 1853 to Benjamin Smith and Jane Stitt. Jane was the daughter of James Harvey Smith and Elizabeth Klingensmith.
