Lydia (McGowan) Smith, wife of Hiram Smith

I am looking for any information on Lydia McGowan Smith. I have conflicting information on her place of birth. It may have been NJ or PA but have also seen Scotland!

She and Hiram had 6 children: Phebe (1836 NY); John James (1837 - Tompkins Co. NY - my gr-gr-grandfather); Artemisia or Anastasia who married Amos Bill in Chautauqua Co. NY; Olyette - who married Brasier Ellis near Madison WI and who listed her mother's place of birth as NJ; Emma (1849); and Faba, who died very young and is buried in Myrtle Cemetery near Poland, Chatauqua Co. NY.

One possibility for her parents are James (1770-6/25/1852)and Catherine McGowan (d. 3/30/1852)from Danby, Tompkins Co. - same area where my gr-gr-grandfather was born. They had a daughter Phebe who married John Van De Bogart.

Any help will be GREATLY appreciated!!!
