Genealogy of William Smith, of Wrightstown, Bucks County, PA

by Josiah B. Smith

Complete and fully dated, with an index, a short biography and a copy of the marriage certificate of William Smith with his wife, the genealogy contains a letter from previous owner on transparent paper, with additional notes. One of the first settlers in America in a land still inhabited in its greater part by the Natives, William Smith has a long genealogy yet a life little known. The biography is as exhaustive as the author could make it, as is the genealogy. 113 pages. 8.25 x 11 inches.

Short biography and index included. With note from previous owner, indicating additional notes to the original genealogy. Note on endpapers, secured with pin.

Published by: Collins Printing House, Newtown, PA, 1883.
