Smith - Shaughnessy  - Sarah Shaughnessy


Hi Judy and Danny 
 

This page in the making still, some of the information is not concrete, solid iron or steal


I am always researching someone for many, and on occasion, I even dabble in the portions of our Lineage

I see your son Danny's public tree showing Leverett William Smith Sr, b. Apr 1852, MA, with parents Freeman & Rhoda.  Which after today I feel are not Your Leverett Smith Sr.'s parents and why this web page, hoping to show why not.

 

Most all links will open that database in a new tab or window, and unless you are a subscriber of Ancestry, may not be able to view the document or indexing to a record.  And if Danny still has a subscription, he will be able to or he can share his login information, so you can.

I find in the following 2 databases these entries

Massachusetts, Town and Vital Records, 1620-1988

Name: Leverett Smith (indexed double T)
Event Type: Birth
Birth Date: 1852
Birth Place: Millbury, Massachusetts

 

Name: Leveret Smith (indexed with one T)
Event Type: Birth
Birth Date: 20 Apr 1852
Birth Place: Millbury, Massachusetts
Father Name: Nehemiah P Smith - note difference in index spelling to the next record for Nehemiah as Nihemiat
Mother Name: Mary Smith

Massachusetts, Birth Records, 1840-1915 link

Name: Leverett Smith
Gender: Male
Birth Date: 20 Apr 1852
Birth Place: Millbury, Massachusetts
Father: Nihemiat P Smith
Mother: Mary Smith


Which I feel in every way the Leverett, 20 Apr 1852, MA above is your Great Grandfather and now your gr-gr-grandfather Nehemiah P Smith and Mary unknown maiden as shown above.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

And to resolve those Researchers who show the parents of Leverett Smith, b. 1852, ME or MA, as Freeman Smith and Rhonda, the following research I present to clarify.


I find a couple Public Tree's with an Leverett Smith, b. 1852, MA, however they are going by an 1870 census that shows Parents as Freeman & Rhoda, there are 5 other public trees which are correct that I can see in their Tree, of having Leverett Smith, b. between 1850-1852 ME, with his parents who are Freeman Smith (his parents as Jacob & Mary Smith) & Freeman's wife Rhoda nee Allen

 

 there is more information above

This Page Indexing & to Records at Ancestry

 

Freeman & Rhoda Smith of ME - 1850 - 1860 w/Everett - 1870 - 1880 - 1885 - 1920 w Everett (son of Freeman)

 

Nehemiah P Smith Marriages - 1885 RI State Census

 

Everett Sr & Emma S - 1880 w/both Everett's Sr & Jr - 1900 - 1910

 

Everett Jr - 1900

 

Everett Jr & Sarah - 1910 - Divorced by 1920 Sarah & boys - 1925 NY State Census



Name: Leverett Smith - link
Age in 1870: 18
Birth Year: abt 1852
Birthplace: Maine
Home in 1870: South Thomaston, Knox, Maine

Birth Year: abt 1813
Birthplace: Maine

Name: Rhoda Smith
Age in 1870: 54
Birth Year: abt 1816
Birthplace: Maine

I can trace Freeman Smith (from above) to 1850, Rhoda & Freeman in 1860, and the same of the Leverett Smith, b. 1852, ME

However, this Leverett is not born MA, as per the 1860, 1870, 1880 and I find him again in 1920, all showing his being born in ME

 1850 - Freeman & Rhoda nee Allen without Leverett

 1860 - Freeman & Rhoda with Leverett - b. 1851, ME

1870 - Freeman & Rhoda with Leverett - b. 1851, ME (Freeman's parents Jacob & Jane both b. abt. 1792, ME)

 1880 - Freeman & Amanda W nee Simmons without Leverett

1885 -

1920 - Leverett Smith their son from 1860 census

These links Danny can use to check this research of mine, and I see that Freeman is b. 1813, ME, each census year and until his death in 1885, reflect this. 

 

Also Leverett above is born between 1850-1852, ME, and this is reflected throughout

 

....and your Leverett Jr. is b. 15 Mar 1877, MA, is also shown b. 1877, RI in 1880, and his father Leverett Sr. is in 1880, b. 1852, MA


Name: Leverett Smith [Leverett G Smith]
Age: 48
Birth Date: Apr 1852
Birthplace: Massachusetts
Home in 1900: Rehoboth, Bristol, Massachusetts
Race: White
Gender: Male
Relation to Head of House: Head
Marital Status: Married
Spouse's Name: Emma S Smith

Years Married: 24
Father's Birthplace: Rhode Island
Mother's Birthplace: Connecticut

Household Members:
Leverett Smith, 48
Emma S Smith, 46
Mabel E Smith, 10

 

And to compare your Leverett Sr. of 1900 census, Leverett Jr. (1877) is not listed should be in 1900, as I see no one has found Everett Jr. in 1900, until just now I found him

 

And before 1910, abt. 1908, Everett Jr. is m. Sarah nee Shaughnessy - Home in 1910: Utica Ward 8, Oneida, NY

Also in 1900 is listed Mabel E. Smith, b. May 1890
