This member has now done autosomal AND a YDNA test. There is a match on YDNA, the match is not a project member so have reached out to ask him to join. When that happens, there will definitely be a new YDNA matched group created.

Excellent! Consider me a member then (well, my father).

To answer your other points:

1) John Smith is certainly Robert Smith's father. However, I can identify at least two John Smiths who fit the bill, so I'm not certain of his birth year or place.

2) I might upload a few pictures of my grandfather and great-grandfather, but need to ask my father if he wants to share his picture.

3) I thought finding somebody in England would interest people! As you've probably seen my family is from Lincolnshire and has been for hundreds of years. I'd be honoured if I can help you find your Lincolnshire roots.

Thanks, Emma

YES!!!! :) I was just working on your line, here is the group, YDNA tester.  and branch https://www.smithsworldwide.org/tng/showbranch.php?br=B7CqIk092022081259 Your registration is now also tied to the branch so you can add or edit within the Robert Smith line. Wasn't sure if John ws the early ancestor or if that was a theory. Would also love if you have a photo of yourself or your dad for the Smith member photo list and one of an early Smith ancestor. You can send to info@smithsworldwide.org

What is tremendously exciting about this is that your line is from England, ie, jumped the pond. Your matches are a bit distant but definitely in this group. Notice that there are also two  Big-Y testers for this group.

Quite right, Paul. Fixed the forum post; the link to the family looks correct

I just now noticed this post, citing Elizabeth Bybee as first wife of Daniel Smith b 1805 TN. This is technically incorrect. Elizabeth Bybee was Daniel's second wife. She and Daniel married after the death of Daniel's first wife Elizabeth Lasley. Daniel then took a third wife, Mary Cherry, concurrent with Elizabeth Bybee. Elizabeth Bybee has been known to refer to Mary as her husband's second wife, since during the time of Daniel's being married to both of them, that was her perspective of the family structure.

Eric

The definitive way to know if you fit into that group will be via a YDNA test and you are, being a male Smith, the perfect candidate for that.

Hello. I am presumably a descendent of George W Smith. I will try and get my dna uploaded sometime this weekend to confirm.
