    Family Jane Cowper 
    • While researching trees I found a Joseph Smith(b.1611)(d.1699) m. Jane Cowper as IDs I8409 & I8356 not attached to any kits. Your Group R M269-2 is the group that goes with Joseph Smith(b.1611).
      Here is what I found:
      0.Joseph Smith(b.1611Eng)(d.1699Va) & Jane Cowper
      1.Alexander Smith(b.1631Eng)(d.1696VA) & Mary Ann Cocke
      1.John Smith(b.1632Va)(d.1669Va)
      1.Jochabed Smith(b.1642Va)(d.1698Va)

      You can attach Joseph to that Group.

  • Notes 
    • A William Bennett (born 1600s and apparently died in Middlesex Co., VA) married a Mary Smith, and some show Mary as a daughter of “my” Alexander Smith (or at least as a member of the overall Joseph Smith family). There is no proof that Alexander had such a daughter (his Will did not mention such a daughter). My “adopting” John Brown married Mary Bennett in 1805 (they apparently took-in, named and reared my maternal gg-grandfather Smith W. “Brown”), and that Mary Bennett was probably a member of that same overall Bennett family that had been in that part of VA for decades....but maybe that later “Bennett/Smith connection” was/is just a coincidence.

      I have an open mind on all of this, and I would not say that any of it is impossible. It is just that there is apparently no proof whatsoever.
