    Thomas Smith was born on 29 July 1658 at Sudbury, MA, but your authors have not yet found proof that this birth record refers to the same Thomas.4 He died on 9 April 1718 at Sudbury, MA; but the identification is uncertain here as well.4 He died before 1735; as his wife Abigail was listed as a widow at her death.5
    There have been claims in the popular press that Abigail (Smith) Adams, wife of President John Adams, was a descendant of Thomas and Abigail (Rice) Smith. These claims are unfounded.
