Part 252s – Smith Robertson Genealogy – Indenture Research – 1832 Richard Oliver Smith Again

31 March 2010

Evening again,

And the work continues. The next Smith-related Record of the Grenada Registers of Records, 1817-1837 (v. R2-Z2) is dated 3 October 1832 and entered 2 November 1832. The Smith highlighted is Richard Oliver Smith. Once again there is no blatant clue as to the possibility of a genealogy or ancestry connection to ggg-grandfather James Smith. This Record is downloaded from Item 8 of the microfilm FHL [1563329].

Here are the pages 169 and 170:
