There are 3 YDNA testers who all claim Aaron Smith b 1755 CT d 1835 New Lisbon, Otsego County, New York. All 3 do not match each other.Starting with the will of Aaron Smith,which was probated in February, 1836 in Otsego County.
Aaron mentions, amont other children, Reuben Smith, Harmon (Herman) Smith and John Smith.
I am the descendant of Aaron via Harmon. I also have about 11 autosomal matches to Reuben's descendants. I share about 5 matches with member #1 but we do not match directly. It does not appear that anyone else from Aaron's line has had y DNA done. No-one knows the maiden name of Harmon's wife Lucina, my gg grandmother, who was born abt 1802. Most census records say born in NY. The 1855 census says born in Putnam County, New York. The 1870 census indicates that both her parents were foreign born. I have guessed that her name possibly was Cole because I have a lot of Cole DNA matches.
