Part 118s – Smith Genealogy – 1852 Baptism - Great-Grandaunt Grace Eliza Smith

16 November 2009


The next Baptism Entry found in my genealogy hunt is the one for great-grandaunt Grace Eliza Smith. The Entry could be dated July 1852, but I cannot make out the exact date due to the either a splotch of or the bleeding of the ink on the paper. The subsequent entry is dated 1852 Aug 27th, and I can make out the month of July in the two preceding her Entry. Her birth date, as written in the left-hand margin is also hard to read.

Great-grandaunt Grace Eliza (née Smith) Gentle was introduced back in one of my original postings of the Gentle Mystery on May 5.

The Gentle Mystery continued on May 9 and on May 15... with more on August 14. I am amazed at the amount of detail that I have at times been able to collect, and especially thanks to all who have contributed.

The source of this following image of the page of the Baptism Entry for great-grandaunt Grace Eliza is the microfilm FHL [1523656]and Item 8, Parish Registers, 1784-1971, Anglican Church, Parish of St. George (Grenada).
