I am looking for descendants of the Smiths of Stone Edge and Pighole who
would be interested in participating in yDNA testing. They would have to be
descended, patrilineally, from a Smith of that group. I am willing to pay
for the test via FamilyTreeDNA.com. Please let me know if you are aware of
any Smiths who are related to:

Christopher Smith m. Elizabeth Townley Halstead
(He is also referred to as \"Christopher Smith of Edge\" and \"Christopher
Smith of Stannihurst\" in some records) Christopher had 5 sons, three of
which moved to Virginia. Only two are documented to have had children. I
believe the two other sons stayed in Burnley. Christopher paid part of a fee
for verification of the owners of the copyholds to the lands in Burnley.

James Smith of Edge

Stephen Smith, copyholder of lands that were a part of The Honoure of
Clitherowe in the 19th century.

I wish to test to verify whether or not my research is correct.

Thank you,

Chris Smith
Jacksonville, FL, USA

If you think you can help Chris with his research, please either leave a message here or contact me at http://briercliffesociety.co.uk/Info/Contact%20Us.htm and I will put you in touch.
