  3.   Source:Temple, Josiah Howard. History of the Town of Northfield, Massachusetts, for 150 Years, p. 537, shows the father Elisha Smith marrying Eunice Grout who d. 28 Aug 1859, a. 83. First, this misreports the death date which is actually 1857 per gravestone and death record. Second, this is impossible since the implied birth date of 1774 would be 14 years after their oldest child was baptized. This source was apparently unaware both father and son had wives named Eunice, the mother dying in 1830, the wife in 1857. It is not known at this point whether Eunice Grout is the name of the mother or the wife, as the origins of neither has yet been determined. More research is needed.
