Hello, I am trying to find the John Smith connection with the daughter (Sarah) of Holmes Boisseau and Rebecca. John birth dates between 1697 and 1718 in Prince George co., Va. John is the son of Richard Smith and Jane ?? of Cattail Run , Prince George co.,Va..I found some information in Holmes Boisseau
Family History Report on the internet:
1.a.Holmes Boisseau
1739 John Smith Jr., acknowledges a deed, to Holmes Biosseau.Sarah Smith relinquishes her dower right.
1740 Holmes Boisseau accknowledges deed to John Hunnicutt.
Rebecca unk the wife of Holmes B. relinquishes dower rights.
1741-45 Rebecca unk the wife of Holmes B., dies. Holmes B. marries his second wife Sarah unk. NOTE: This is based on the listings of Sarah Boisseau after this date.Sarah b. maybe be the daughter of Holmes and Rebecca unk. Boisseau, but Rebecca unk does not appear after this date. Indicating she has probably died.
Another source I found linking Sarah B. to John Smith is found in VIRGINANS: The Family History of Richard Smith by John w. Pritchett
It listed the descendants of Richard Smith :
Richard Smith (? - 1759)
his sp. Agnes Cocke, Benjamin Harrison
Thomas Smith 1718
Francis Sheffield, Elizabeth Rouse, Edward Prince,
Judith (-) Smith
Then it goes on with the rest of the decendants.
This John Smith was born between 1697 and 1718. I don'tknow the birth date of SARAH (-) Smith. But I believe that Holmes B, Smith is either their son or grandson. I have know dates on him yet. I have just found this info so haven't done much research on him. I do know SARAH BOISSEAU married a Mr. Jones. Could she have married him after John Smith?
Have you any clues that could help me?
Thank you in advance for reading my info.
