Child with Mary Mayo:

Ralph/3 Smith, born 23 Oct 1682 at Eastham, Massachusetts1, married, 23 Oct 1712, Mary Mayo.1
     18 Jan 1726/27, Mary Smith of Eastham, widow of Thomas, sold her Negro woman Hagar, "about thirty-six years of age, with her working clothes," to son Ralph Smith, yeoman of Eastham, for £40. Also included in the bill of sale was Hagar's son Zorah, "about thirteen," for whom no value was assigned. "We hear nothing more of our ancestor's traffic in 'human chattels.' … No reference was made to servants in his will (1757), and this was probably the last transaction of the kind in the family."2
     About 1739/40 Ralph Smith moved his family, probably by water, to Middletown, Connecticut, which then covered a tract of land on both sides of the Connecticut River, including the whole town of Chatham. They settled on elevated land in the parish of Middle Haddam, then a leading shipbuilding center3, where Mary died 13 Jul 1744.4 He died 8 Apr 1763 (g.s.), a. 805, and is buried in Hog Hill Cemetery, East Hampton.5
     His will, 20 Mar 1757, devised to sons Thomas, Isaac, Enoch, Ezra and Heman, 2nd wife Lydia, Bethyah Brown, and daughters Phebe Brainard and Mary Brainard.6
