1.1    Hugh Smith was born abt 1740 near Lyme, New London, CT died fall of 1816 at Preston, Chenango, NY (probate) married 22 Sept 1773 (Early CT marriages found in ancient church records vol 2) to Elizabeth Daniels who survived her husband and probably died in early 1825.
 
ICH: from Rochester Genealogical Society, Inc. 1998
Hugh and his wife Elizabeth resided at Lyme, CT until moving in 1806 to Chenango county NY. Their six sons moved to Western NY at the same time. Hugh wrote his will on 26 Aug 1816 at Preston, Chenango, NY. He left his six sons his 372 acre farm in Preston after Elizabeth's death and cash to his four granddaughters named DOWITH. He made his son Nehemiah executor. The estate was inventoried in Nov 1816. In 1825 Nehemiah bought his brothers' shares of the farm. Under the will, the farm was supposed to remain in tact until Elizabeth's death.

1.2  Hugh Smith born ca 1775 died after April 1825 perhaps in Genesee county NY
 
ICH: from Rochester Genealogical Society Inc 1998
On 15 April 1825 Hugh's youngest brother Abel, acting as Hugh's attorney, sold to their brother Nehemiah for $113 Hugh's 62 acre share in their father's 372 acre farm in Preston, Chenango, NY. Because the deed mentions no wife for Hugh, it is evident he was than single perhaps widowed.
 
Hugh is a good candidate to be the father of Josiah and Jerial Smith, tentatively listed here as his sons. Of the six sons of Hugh Sr. the mirgrant from CT to Chenango county NY, only Hugh and his younger brother Jerial did not remain in Chenango county NY but settled farther west in NY state. Of these two brothers, Jerial seems a shade young to have been the father of the two men listed bleow. Thus, Hugh's possible children, born in CT (census) were

Nehemiah Smith came from Lyme, Conn., in 1801, and settled on Fort Hill, in Oxford village. He was a carpenter and cabinet-maker, and pursued that vocation here till his death, in December, 1835.

The most of the old settlers who came here during the early part of the nineteenth century were poor in pocket, but, possessed of an unlimited amount of energy and perseverance, and having faith in the country, "stuck it out," and were successful. Among them were Nehemiah Smith, the third of that name, a native of Lyme, Conn., who settled on Fort Hill in this village in 1801. He was a carpenter and cabinet maker, which vocation he pursued till his death in December, 1835. Elizabeth (Gee) Smith, his widow, died in 1858.
