    Notes 
    • Ephraim’s estate was inventoried 13 Jun 1712.

      From the article “John Smith of Milford”, pages 222–223:
      Ephraim Smith (1644–1712), son of John Smith the Settler, removed to Derby, Conn. He married Abigail Briscoe of Milford.
      No will is recorded. The inventory was taken June 13, 1712. The probate records are in Vol. 3, pages 50, 61, 80, 99 and 119. On page 80 is given the division of the properly among the children; only John is mentioned; probably the wife and the daughter, Ruth Briscoe, were dead at that time. Ruth's portion of £56 is given to the daughter, Ruth Briscoe; Mercy's portion is given to her husband, Samuel Gunn, who was appointed executor; no mention is made of Ephraim, who did not die until December, 1712. The estate amounted to £226 3. 7. The History of Derby states that Ephraim Smith (1644-1712) died without leaving any children; this is incorrect. [1, 2]
