  • Notes 
    • He was a tailor- Gen Dict of Rhode Island
    • Note: Conflict with Kit 321067, whose personal research also indicates Christopher Smith as early ancestor. However, his YDNA results do not match Group R1b-50. Am starting his line with Thomas Smith b 1626, looking for additional testers who have known descent from Thomas for comparison.
