  1. Laurel, This is my great-aunt ! The mystery of her son George Smith is finally cleared up ! I was amazed and excited when I saw this ! I am assuming since the wedding was in Newport RI and their residence was to be in Groton, CT that maybe he had something to do with the Navy. I wonder if he was killed in WW1 ? I am going to try and find out. I know in the 30’s she was married to Louis Lamberton. Is this your Smith family ?

  2. I don’t know what happened to the message I wrote earlier ! Christina was my great-aunt. I have always wondered where the “Smith” originated in her son George Smith’s name. Now not only do I have a source for his last name but also for his first name. I was totally amazed and ecstatic when I saw this entry today ! Thank-you !!
