Yes, I think it does need to be reviewed.  Mary Pemberton from the link shows born in 1786 if I remember; where I think George Smith is born around the 1780's.  I don't think George can have this woman as his mother until we get the dates worked out.

I have the same issue with George's wife Ally Martin.  They have a son; William Thomas Smith, who was born in 1809; yet George and Ally didn't marry until 1812.

Another reason to join this group, is to help get the data correct.  I have only been using online sites up to this point to find the paper trails; and this part going back to this time period is a bit hard to find.
