Hi. My g-g-g-aunt was named Sophia Smith, born in April 1832. She lived in Fairfield Township, Westmoreland County, PA, where in 1858 she married Samuel McCurdy who was born in August 1838. They had 10 children: Susan, born in 1858; Watson born in April 1861; Elizabeth (Eliza) born in 1862; Henry William born in 1864; Nancy born in 1866; John H. born in December 1867; Porter born in 1869; Oliver born in September 1872; Ella born in 1874 and one more child whose name I do not know and may have died young. Watson married Carrie Campbell and had at least four children: Martin, Walter, Glenn and Arthur. Henry married Mary ? and had at least four children: Charles, Samuel, Edith and Roy. John H. married Rebecca J. and had at least four children: William Samuel, Russell and Albert. Oliver married Kate ? and had at least one child: Laurence. This information was all pieced together from censuses and may contain errors (particularly with regard to birth years). I would very much like to get more information about this family (for example, Samuel's parents, etc) and perhaps find some descendants of the couple. I believe most of them stayed in area of Fairfield and Derry Townships in Westmoreland County, but this also might be wrong.
Thank you. Natalie Smith
