  • Notes 
    • There is a record in Fairfield, CT for a baptism for a Zalmon Smith (mine was born late 1779)

      in Feb 1780 at Redding Church, Fairfield, CT, son of Samuel Smith and Huldah (her maiden name was Huldah Martha, according to a marriage record that I found) and my Zalmon had children named Samuel and Huldah, so I'd like to think that this would indicate another generation back, but I don't know what level of confidence or documentation you require. Zalmon also had a son named "Eleazer", which name is mentioned in the "Old Families of Fairfield" book but I can't trace Samuel back to that name.

      Even the author of the Old Families book had Smith records that he couldn't connect - that's why I took the Family Finder test - it seems that DNA may be the only way to sort it out.
