Just saw this post and was wondering what your relationship is to Lydia Smith? My name is Ron Shields. I live in NY. Lydia Smith's mother Lydia Townsend is my 3rd great grandmother. Lydia Townsend (b. 1827) was 1st marrried to Jacob Heffenfinger. She had 2 children with him. After he died she married Robert Smith and had 8 more children.It is through the Heffenfinger children that I am related to her. The younger Lydia smith married Henry Shreve.
