  • Notes 
    • I'm sure you're aware of the wiki article which references a church record that states that the son of Erasmus Smith is the theologian, Henry Smith, but I'm sending the link just in case.

      Despite his popularity in the Elizabethan period, considerable uncertainty surrounds Smith's biography. Probably born in Leicestershire around 1560, Smith may have enrolled during the 1570s in colleges at both Cambridge and Oxford, but seems not to have taken a degree. He was in any case by 1589 among London's most popular preachers; however in that year, Smith seems to have contracted an illness which according to Charles Henry Cooper's Athenae Cantabrigienses caused him to devote his remaining time to preparing his writings for publication:

      During his sickness, being desirous to do good by writing, he occupied himself in revising his sermons and other works for the press. his collected sermons he dedicated to his kind patron Lord Burghley. . .He died before the collection came from the press, being buried at Husbands Bosworth in his native country. In the register of that parish is this entry: Anno 1591, Henricus Smyth, theologus,m filius Erasmi Smyth, armigeri, sepult. fuit 4to. die Julii.

      Smith's preparations allowed his writings to become among England's most popular, after his death. However, some sources indicate that Smith may have survived until around 1600, or even until as late as 1613.

    • Abner Smith served in the Revolutionary War from Warwick, MA. After Jerusha's death in 1815, Abner married Lydia Harvey- who may have been Jerusha's sister. They moved to McDonough, Chenango Co., NY with some of Abner's children. He died there in 1823.
