In order to definitively prove the lineages of the various descendants of Reverend Guy Smith  b c 1675 Ely, Cambridgeshire, England d c 1720 Abingdon Parish, Gloucester, VA,  we at the Smith DNA Project at FamilyTreeDNA wish to encourage direct line male Smiths to do a YDNA test. Sons are: 

  1. John Smith b 1700 Abingdon Parish, Gloucester Co VA
  2. Guy M Smith b 1704 Gloucester Vo VA > 1736 VA
  3. Constantine Smith b 1717 Essex Co VA d 1770 Essex Co VA
  4. Lawrence Smith b 1719 Abingdon Parish, Gloucester Co VA 

There are other children in this line, daughters, listed from here.

If you are a male Smith, or you are a female that has male Smith kin or some other male Smith that could do a YDNA test for this line, please consider doing so.

For Reverend Guy Smith , we would like at least one tester from each son, if found, to prove the line.One promising direct line seems to the the Guy Smith b 1728 d 1787 Granville Co NC who married Ann Hopkins and descendants in Wilkes Co GA, Carroll Co GA and Jasper Co GA.

We also, in the effort to be as accurate as possible, invite those who believe they have a solid paper trail with sources going to Rev Guy Smith  from any child, to send the tree to info@smithsworldwide.org

This is your statement:
"For Reverend Guy Smith , we would like at least one tester from each son, if found, to prove the line.One promising direct line seems to the the Guy Smith b 1728 d 1787 Granville Co NC who married Ann Hopkins and descendants in Wilkes Co GA, Carroll Co GA and Jasper Co GA."
The Guy Smith who married Ann Hopkins is the son of Col John Smith and grandson of Rev Guy Smith.  The Guy Smith who has descendants in Wilkes Co GA, Carroll Co GA and Jasper Co GA is I71472.  If you want documentation, please contact me.  rms71@suddenlink.net

Unfortunately Guy Smith is not in my husband's line but I found a record that may help you. It looks like your Guy was a witness to John Page's will. This will was found online at the London archives. I believe you may find more information on him there. The web address is : Will of John Page of Gloucester County Virginia, North America | The National Archives
I had to register there to download his will, but right now the download is free if you want to do so also.  Good luck with your research.
