Thank you rosie99, thank you very much for finding that. Yes, maybe their first son passed away and he was named after him.

Thank you everyone for all of your help in finding this information on Richard Smith, I am very grateful to you all, thank you.

Just a question. Because he was a Dr would it be easy to find out where he would have received his training or would that very difficult?

Thank you!

I found these using search engines, I don't think that it will be easy to find out where he trained.  You would also need to know what 'type' of Doctor he was

Thank you rosie99, I will have a good look at those links.

Yes, that is a good point - I don't know what type of Dr he was. I do know that he practiced medicine in Honolulu but to what capacity I don't know. He's mentioned in the early missionary journals of the Hokianga in NZ of treating the local preachers and their families, and I am guessing the other people of that area.

Thank you very much for the links rosie99, thank you for your help!

Just an update everyone. I received the death certificate for Richard Hill Smith - all of the information that everyone had found on his birth, death and family is all correct. I really appreciate all of your help. It has put another piece into my very large jigsaw puzzle - I now know more about Richard Hill Smith which helps understand more background of the families I am trying to do research on in NZ. I will continue on another Smith line in the hope that I'll find that crucial piece that will marry everything up.
Thank you for all of your help everyone - you have been really wonderful - thank you!
Take care and enjoy your day.
Kind regards,
kwaussie
