I am seeking information about my ancestor, Dr. Gaius SMITH, and his wife Keziah (last name unknown) who lived in Bennington. He served in the Revolution from Bennington in 1781 and was listed in the 1790 Bennington census.
Among his children were one son, Leurendus Belina SMITH, who died at age 17 on 10 Dec. 1790 (buried in the cemetery beside the Bennington Meetinghouse), Desire SMITH who m. Asa BLY, Hannah SMITH who m.Zenas ASHLEY, and Vernera SMITH who m. Joseph RUDD III (also from Bennington). I descend from Vernera and Joseph. Gaius and Keziah moved to Edmeston, Otsego County, NY in 1803. Their daughters and their families also moved to New York state.
Any information about the SMITH family would be most appreciated!
