Agnes B. 1835 Hamilton, Ontario, Canada; married same place 30 Sep 1856, d. Tivoli, NY (Dutchess County, adjacent to Clermont Estates) 9 Sep 1863. Married James Smith of Fyvie, Scotland. Have marriage, death certs, reccommendations for work, etc. Two sons, William b.1857, James b. 1859, Hamilton. Referred to as "Agnoes McCoombs, Nancy McCombs in some records. Unable to find parents in Canada. Her mother may have been Indian. She also lived briefly in NYC before moving to Tivoli.
Curiously, we have a large chest belonging to her, with the initials, G Mc and the year 1765 on it. The chest was made in Lancaster, PA, by man who only made them for 2 years.
Have done extensive work on James Smith line, but dead end on Agnes. Would welcome any suggestions- have checked Hamilton area newspapers, etc.
