About Anna Smith

From http://jliptrap.us/gen/gildersleeve.htm:

Anna Gildersleeve (1629-before 1671) married about 1646 John "Nan" Smith (1625?-1694) And John Nan Smith remained a close neighbor of Anna's father Richard Gildersleeve, who apparently married John's widowed mother. John married secondly, 1672, Elizabeth Wickes, daughter of John and Mary Wickes of Warwick, Rhode Island, and widow of Richard Townsend. John's will made 2 July 1694, proved 6 Sep 1694, called himself the "son-in-law" of Richard Gildersleeve and used the same term to identify Richard Townsend, Jr, the son of his second wife. This leads us to believe the term "son-in-law" would be in modern terms "step-son," giving further evidence that his widowed mother had married Richard Gildersleeve.
