So what is it that you are looking for? At 7.25 a.m. my crystal ball is not at its sharpest.

Sorry David,
 - That is all the info. I have and I know nothing about them and I don't know where to start looking in the 1700s.
 -  And to make matters just more complicated there are two more families of Smiths, but in the 1800s that I am looking for as well. 
-  Oh, well, back to the 'drawing board'.
                       Thanks,  Osborn :'(

Have you identified them as being the parents of someone in your tree, or is it that you have a Smith in your tree and have used a scattergun approach and are looking at every Smith in the locality in the hope that they may be connected to yours? If the latter then you are likely to waste a lot of time following false leads.

The old maxim of working backwards from what you know is a good policy to follow.

Post what details you have about the oldest Smith in your line, and we'll take a look.

Regards
