Dear Shannon,

I'm sure the Catherine Harwood you mention (widow of Benjamin) is Catherine Harwood who married Caleb Smith.

Catherine's maiden name was Chauncey. I am descended from Elihu Smith, son of Caleb Smith and Catherine Harwood (Chauncey). Elihu had a brother, Chauncey b. 1770 and carried the name Chauncey to his own offspring. I imagine "Chauncey" comes from Catherine's maiden name.

Sincerely,
Barb Taylor
