  • Notes 
    • Its clear from the 1865 census record that Reuben G Smith 1790-1866 was married twice. First Lydia Remmington nov 17 1817. 2nd before 1840(in the 1840 census is a female 40-49). The clearest record is the 1865 ny census. Just after his son Buel G Smith's family, (initials only) is Reuban and Persis Smith age 74 and 70, Reuben born NH, Persis born Saratoga County NY. No children, Reuben married 2 mariages, Persis married wife 1 marriage. 2 of Reuben's children were born after Lydia died. From this we can surmise that they married about 1832. Both children died young Henrietta 1833-1838 and Enos 1846-1847.

      Since Lydia Remmington died in 1830, and Reuben had 2 children after her death we can surmise he remarried by 1832/3. In the 1840,50,55,60 and 65 census records are clues, the clearest record is the 1865 record. Persis Smith 1st maraige (Reuban 2nd) no kids born Saratoga County NY. Henrietta and Enos R Smith are therefore likely to be hers, and since they died early she stated she had no children in the 1865 census.
