I am curious as to those children listed for Cuthbert and Elizabeth Chamberlain Lanier Smith that have dates of being born starting in 1750 (It appears they came from a book by Linda Cheek). Cuthbert and Elizabeth did not get married until 1758. Also, it is showing Cuthbert as having a second wife Elizabeth Washington. From everything I have researched Elizabeth Washington was married to Samson Lanier Sr., their son Samson Lanier Jr. married Elizabeth Chamberlain. After Samson Jr. died she married Cuthbert and came into the marriage with a daughter Rebecca Lanier (I believe the sons were living with their Uncle). Cuthbert and Elizabeth's children would have to been born at the least in 1759???

From the Smith Wills-Deeds and Family Histories p 245. Cuthbert Smith d 1790 Brunswick Co VA m 1st Elizabeth Chamberlyn m 2nd Elizabeth Lanier 25 Jul 1758 Halifax Co VA. 

IF THIS IS SO, then the children rightly belong under Chamberlyn and would not be under Elizabeth Lanier. 

To sort this out, do you have some sources that show the Chamberlyn, Washington and Lanier points? 

Would also like someone is a known male Smith descendant of Cuthbert to consider doing a YDNA test
