Nancy Devol - Rhode Island - 1787

I am trying to connect my gggg-Grandmother Nancy Devol (Mrs. Ephraim Smith)with her parents in Rhode Island.

Nancy Devol was born in 1787 in Rhode Island. Her birth date was calculated from the 1850, 1860, & 1870 census and (unusually enough) these calculations always gave this same date.

Nancy Devol Smith was a member of the Baptist Church and met & married her husband Ephraim Smith, a Baptist divinity student, in Rhode Island about 1805. The couple eventually moved to Chateauguay, Franklin County, NY in 1820. Rev. Smith was the Baptist minister in Chateauguay NY until his death in 1863.

Nancy Devol Smith had a grandson George Washington Devol (Duval) Smith who was supposedly named for a member of her Devol family.

Any information as to how to connect Nancy Devol Smith to the large Baptist Devol family in Rhode Island would be sincerely welcome.
