    • R. G. Clarke: "Will dated 2 Apr 1757 & proved 27 Apr 1757." Source: The Record, NYGBS, Jan 1922, pg 14.

      Note copied from the cited Bergen book: "Abel Smith, Jr. lived in Hempstead and Oyster Bay. He was a farmer. On 5 Dec 1735, Abel Smith Sr. of Bergan Co., NJ, conveyed to Abel Smith Jr., of Hempstead a patent and right of land in Hempstead. In 1741, he bought a farm lying partly in Hempstead and partly in Oyster Bay. They sold this land in 1751 to Jacob Mott and moved to Cow Neck where he was living at the time of his death. In his will, he divided his land between his two sons, Samuel and Maurice. He mentions in his will, his wife Ruth and children Samuel, Sarah, Maurice and Jemima, and his brother Benjamin Smith."

      This same info slightly expanded is recorded in the NYGBS publication "The Record" Jan. 1922, pgs 14-16. Also: "These four children of Abel Smith all left Long Island with their families before the Revolution and removed to Dutchess County, New York.
