Hi  Vince Smith ,just been looking back and found this post ,my greatgrandad was John Smith ,son of Samuel Smith who was the son of John son of Wisdom son of Jasper .I also read Erics pages on Wisdom Smith and see it states there may also be a son Samuel married to Louise Fletcher .I found the marriage of Samuel to Louise Butler 1867 fathers name John Smith also married same day same place Sidney Smith to Fiance Smith father John Smith witness was Ansel Smith so I think its a good bet that  my Samuel and your Sidnall were brothers
