Sarah Smith was my maternal gt grandmother who was born 1838 in Massena, NY. She married James Chapman and lived in Ellensburg, N.Y. I have not found any definite connection between Sarah and Jay Hungerford Smith who bought my gt grandparents John Agnew's house in Ausable Forks, N.Y. where he was a pharmacist before becoming famous for his fruit drinks. I would be grateful if anyone knows of a connection between them. John Agnew's son Merton married Florence Chapman, a daughter of Sarah and James. I think it must be more than a coincidence.
This is one of those instances where it would be very useful to compare data. If you are not a member of the Smith DNA Project (Official All) on FamilyTreeDNA and have a DNA kit, please join so we can compare.
Have seen where the parents of Sarah Smith who married James Chapman may be William Farnsworth Smith b 1815 Clinton Co NY m Angelina Boynton. Have not verified this and we have no DNA testers for this line (shoutout to any male Smiths who descend from William Farnsworth Smith to join the project with a YDNA test).. Reasons for thinking this may be is that James Chapman is found in Mooers, Clinton Co NY, as is a Sarah J of the right age in William F's household. (See 1850 Mooers Clinton Co NY and 1850 Ellenburg, Clinton Co NY.
