John SMIDDY b abt 1829 Ireland, d August 1859 New Castle, PA in mining accident.
Family story says he was chosen at age 16-17 to be one of "Queen Victoria's guards" & served 11 years before deserting by stowing away on ship to US. He may be John SMEDLY who arrived in Philadelphia 1856.
Looking for his parents, siblings & other Smiddy info. Also looking for mining accident info and Queen Victoria Guard confirmation.
