My 2nd great grandparents were William H. and Harriet Nash Smith of Westport, CT. I found their marriage in the Barbour collection but can't find who their parents were. I suspect William was related to the other William H. Smiths, Deacon Recompense Smith. My grandmother had told us he was in the cotton or thread business which is along the same line as the "other" Smiths there. William was born circa 1806 and Harriet about 1808. They left CT for Ohio where Wm. died in 1856 (not sure where exactly) Harriet lived after his death with Sam and Katie Smith Cole (her daughter and son-in-law and my great grandparents) in Indianapolis. However, Katie, her mother, and a few other family members are buried in the Woodland Cemetery in Dayton, Montgomery Co., Ohio. If anyone has any info on this couple, PLEASE contact me...I'm going crazy with them. lol. Thanks.
