Jasper Smith of Maidenhead, New Jersey, was the son of John Smith of Bedford, New York, and many of Jasper's descendants are contained in this book. The earlier records are taken from the New Jersey genealogies "Smith families of Bedford, NY and Maidenhead, NJ." Later records were researched by various members of the Smith families in census records, county records, wills, cemetery records, Bibles and personal family records. Some members of this family moved into central New York State about 1800. From there many of them migrated to Pennsylvania, Michigan and further west. Of course, some of them were very difficult to find and some were never found. The authors have tried very hard to include as many of the descendants as possible. Entries span eleven generations, from number 1, John Smith (ca.1650-1694) to number 1099, Randall Joseph Stephens (born 1970). Entries typically provide: full name, date and place of birth, date and place of death, names of parents, date of marriage, name of spouse, names of spouse's parents, names of children (most provide date of birth), and place of burial. A full-name index completes this work.
