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.
- YDNA mermber #1 is a descendant of Reuben Smith b 1788 d 1846 Otsego County, NY. There are no Smith YDNA matches for this kit.
- YDNA member # 2 is a descendant of Harmon Smith b 1792 CT d Otsego County NY. This member fits into Group GRP-I-M253-12 Note that the YDNA haplogroup is I-M253.
- YDNA member #3 thought he might be a descendant of John Smith who, in the will, is said to e in Batavia, Genesee County, New York at the time of the writing of Aaron's will. This member fits in with the group that includes Richard *Bull* Smith b 1613 Eng > Smithtown New York, that is GRP-R-M269-64. Note that the YDNA haplogroup here is R-M269. Because at this point there is no explicit evidence that the father to his Hiram H Smith is the John mentioned in Aaron Smith's will, the line stops there.
