There is a will for a Paulina Smith d 1800 in Mecklenburg Co VA. She names 3 children, no husband is indicated. John P Smith, Robert Smith and unknown daughter Smith who married a Pennington (granddaughter Patsy Pennington). Witness to Paulina's will was Joseph Speed. According to this tree, she would be first wife of William Sterling Smith (not mentioned in her will) and married in Henrico Co VA in 1784. This Wililam Sterling Smith married Judith Smith in Powhatan Co VA in 1801. Seems like there is a good chance these people are conflated with each other, but at the very least need straightened out. Can someone help, with sources?
