I am pleading for males named Smith who descend from any one of one of these couples below (or other New Hampshire, Maine & Massachusetts Smith lines) to have their Y DNA tested to help solve many Smith brick-walls. Especially as they relate to mine, between Joseph Smith (1639-1728) & his parentage which is in question (despite what many secondary sources say).
*Samuel Smith (1761-1844) & Abigail Burleigh of Ossipee NH
*Benjamin Smith (1709-17791) of Durham, NH who had 3 wives: Jemima Hall, Anna Veazie & Sarah Clark
*John Smith (1669-1744) & Susanna Chesley of Durham/Oyster River, NH
*Joseph Smith (1639-1728) of Durham/Oyster River/Dover, NH
