The Smith DNA Project has one YDNA tester for Eliab and we would like to confirm the line. Eliab Smith went to Sidney, Kennebec Co ME, and his children were in Hallowell and possibly Belgrade. One son, Moses Smith b 1781 Lincoln Co ME died in Montgomery Co NY and some of his descendants were in Ramsey Co MN, Madision Co NY and Mercer Co IL. Eliab Smith Jr died in 1861 Kennebec Co MN and his children seemed to also stay in the area. 

If you are a male Smith descendants (ie, your last name is Smith and you descend as a male line from Eliab Smith) please consider doing a YDNA test or if you're a female or other surname, if you have a male Smith, perhaps that one could do for you. Or, if you have done autosomal tests, please join the project and send a note to info@smithsworldwide.org to let us know specifically that you're a descendant of Eliab.

My Uncle, Gailen Smith, has completed Y-DNA up to Y-111 and waiting for results to 700 still pending.  I found that under Project M233 the closeness of tester N3599 which I think is Kirby, ancestor Eliab.  I would like to see if we can establish a connection with deep research.  I have a brick wall with William Broadwell Smith b Abt 1827 who may have been born in New Jersey or Ohio.  He was separated from family and immerged as a trapper along the St Joseph River in Michigan. I am wondering if he could be a ggrandson of Eliab.
