    Based upon the records referenced above, the George Smith Sr of Hanover Co., VA referenced in Reuben Smith’s 1792 marriage bond was Reuben Smith’s father. George Smith Jr. was a brother as well as the William Smith who married Ann Duke, sister to the Elizabeth Duke referenced in the marriage bond. If one son (John Smith) witnessed his father’s will, then why not a second son (George Smith).
