  • Notes 
    • “Documentation” that Guy Smith of Granville Co, NC descends from Rev Guy Smith

      And a s final addendum, the one documentation that I had that my Guy Smith descended from Rev Guy Smith, was DAR application by Mary Daniell Bagnell (DAR Member # 105267, Add 374) approved 1 Sep 1950 that lists parents of Guy Smith, Sr (III) as the child of Rev. Guy Smith, bp 12 Dec 1704 at Gloucester Co., Va. d at Gloucester Co., Va. buried on 28 Jan 1738 and his wife Sarah. The Rev Guy Smith was the child of Rev Guy Smith d at Gloucester Co, Va. on ca 1720. However, this is not considered documentation by lineage societies since NSDAR only considered lineage to Guy Smith (III). Guy Smith, Sr.'s NSDAR Ancestor number is A105437. His birth is given as 1728 in Gloucester Co, VA. Death given as about May 1787 in Granville Co, NC. Service Source: CLARK, STATE RECS OF NC, VOL 22, PP 171-172.
