daughter of Epenetus and Phebe (Wood) Platt of Huntington, L.I. Epenetus Platt was a son of Richard Platt, who came from England in 1683 and later settled in Milford, Conn. The son, Epenetus Platt, removed to Huntington in 1666 and married in 1667. Jonathan Smith inherited the homestead of his father and of his grandfather at Nissequogue, and it remained in possession of his descendants of the Floyd name until recent years. His will, in his own handwriting, dated 10 Oct 1743, proved 29 Nov 1744, mentions his recently deceased son, Platt Smith, and leaves all property to his two daughters, Tabitha, wife of Nicoll Floyd, and Ruth, wife of Henry Smith. Much of his real estate had been previously deeded to his son, Platt Smith. _________________________
