Part 108t – Smith Genealogy – 1819 Baptism – GGGrandmother Cecilia Jane (née Thomas) Smith

10 November 2009

Morning again,

You know in the search in genealogy a name at a given point at another time may trigger the statement “You know I’ve seen that name somewhere in my files.” And in this case it’s the last question that I asked in Part 107s: “Is the witness W___ Thomas in some way related to gg-grandmother Cecilia Jane (née Thomas) Smith?

Foraging through my files I found an image of an 1819 Baptism of Cecelia Jane Thomas, and all-things-being-equal I believe is the Baptism Entry for gg-grandmother Cecilia Jane (née Thomas) Smith.

Sources: Parish of St. George, Anglican Church, Grenada 
and Family History Library

As you can see from the inserted image her father is William Thomas. Correspondingly this could be the same W___ Thomas that is a witness at the 1840 marriage to gg-grandfather James Smith, the Younger.

This image is a page from the Anglican Church Parish Register. It is from the microfilm FHL[[1523656], Item 4, Parish Registers, 1784-1971, Anglican Church, Parish of St. George (Grenada).

My transcription of the transcription –

A.D. 1819


Cecelia Jane, daughter of William Thomas & of Maria his wife born on the 25th day of Septbr 1819 & baptised on the 26th day of Novbr. 1819.

From the information found this now introduces me to my three-times great-grandparents William and Maria Thomas. I’ve included an updated Descendant Chart which includes them as well as the more recent cross-reference notes.
