FRANK W. FOYE, b. May 31, 1860 NH, m. ELLA M. SMITH of Worcester, MA
Posted by: Jacqueline Sleeper Russell (ID *****0541) Date: June 16, 2006 at 16:27:46
  of 176

I have been researching the THOMAS SMITH COMPANY of Worcester, MA to see if this family was related to my SMITH family of Acton, MA., and cannot find a connection. My great aunt cared for a SMITH descendant when he became ill and my aunt who worked for this company thought we were related. I put this research here in hope that it may one day be helpful to people researching this family.
