I have no Isaac in that time frame, and my only Lemuel Smith, son of
Samuel, was younger. I estimated his birth at 1775, and he died 14 Mar
1843. My notes on Lemuel follow:
"Descendant Earle Smith: Samuel Smith (1737-1811) migrated about
1784/5 from the Greenwich/Stamford CT area to that part of Philipstown,
Dutchess Co. that is now Putnam Valley, Putnam Co. Samuel had a large
family and settled just south of Oscawana Lake. Samuel's wife is believed
to be Elizabeth (Lockwood). Samuel's youngest son Lemuel (c1775 - 1833)
married Charity Kirkum and lived nearby.
"1810 Census, Phillips, Dutchess Co., p.80. Lemuel Smith (next to Samuel
Smith). 1 male under 10, 1 male 10-16, 1 male 16-26, 1 male 26-45, 4
females under 10, 1 female 26-45, 1 female over 45.
"1811, 15 Nov. Date of probate, Dutchess Co. Wills, Vol. 5, p. 603.
Samuel Smith, Phillips Town, farmer, will dated 6 Apr 1811; probated 15
Nov 1811, Wife Elizabeth. Daughters Mary Owen; Anna Wicksom, widow;
Dosha Colegrove; Sally Tompkins; youngest son Lemuel; Richard Carman;
Jane Bell; James Martin; Henry Vantassel; Edmund Lockwood. Executors:
sons Lemuel and Philemon and Richard Carman. Witnesses: John Horton;
Richard Carman; Israel Horton.
"1817, 23 Apr. Putnam Co. Deeds, Vol.A, p.223. Lemuel Smith of
Philipstown and wife Charity sold 150 acres in Philipstown to Zopher
Kirkum of Carmel for $4,000.
"1824, 15 Jul. Putnam Co. Deeds, Vol. B, p.198. Lemuel Smith of
Philipstown and wife Charity sold 45 acres in Philipstown to Zopher Smith
of Philipstown for $187.
"1824, 15 Jul. Putnam Co. Deeds, vol. B, p.199. Lemuel Smith of
Philipstown and wife Charity sold 160 acres in Philipstown to Zopher Smith
of Philipstown for $1200.
"1833, 14 Mar. Putnam Co. Old Estates, Vol. B #585. Lemuel Smith, dec.,
of Philipstown died 14 Mar 1833. Widow Charity, 1 Apr 1833. Children:
Zopher; Eliza; Caty Ann; Julia Ann; James; Susan Silleck, wife of William;
Sarah Port, wife of Robert Jr., all of Philipstown and over 21, plus minor
children Samuel; Lydia June; Hetty Maria; and William C., minors of
Philipstown. Will recorded Liber C. p. 32."
I see no "Isaac connection" to this Lemuel. Good luck. Louanne

Thank you - based on the dates it looks as though your Lemuel Smith and
my Isaac Smith (whose son Isaac Adams Smith was b. 20 Sept 1756 in
Canopus Hollow, that's the closest date I have to Isaac) would have been
approximately contemporaries. Therefore if there was any relationship
between these families it would be in Lemuel and Isaac's generation. Do
you know of any Isaac's in your Smith family in that timeframe?. - Nancy
