This mentions the will of Henry Smith in which he names a wife, Catherine, and a son, John Henry Smith. The will states that “George Haines is to support and maintain Henry’s wife, Catharine, and daughter, Frances" but, in 1861, George Haynes was with Ann Smith (45), so Catharine and Ann seem to be the same person. She seems to have been Catharine Ann Adams. See also:

in a rather convoluted family. John Henry Smith appears to be absent in both cases, but the will does name him as a son. See also:

This indicates that Nicholas was promoted from Ensign to Lieutenant in the militia in 1806. Apparently he resigned his commission 12MAR1813.
