    NEHEMIAH1 SMITH, born in England about 1605, came to America and made application to be admitted a Freeman at Plymouth, March 6, 1637-8. Married Jan. 21, 1639-40, Anne2 Bourne, of Marshfield, daughter of Thomas and Bourne, her full name being doubtless Sarah Ann or Sarann. He settled for a while in Marshfield or Greens Harbor as it was then called and is believed to have been the first religious teacher of that place. Later moved to New London, and remained there until 1655, owing to trouble with the Indians. Norwich was purchased of the Indian Chief and his sons, in June, 1659, and Nehemiah Smith was one of the original proprietors. Died about 1686, and his wife, born about 1615, died after Jan. 12, 1684.

    Rev. Nehemiah (the first of the name), died in Norwich, Conn., about 1686, aged (about) 81 years; his wife (Sarah Ann Bourne), born about 1615, died after January 12, 1684. They were both buried in the Post and Gager burying-ground, in Norwich, in the oldest part of the cemetery. All the early residents were buried there, and all without stones to mark the exact place of their graves. A granite monument which contains the name of Nehemiah Smith, and other proprietors, has been erected on the highest portion of the ground.

    Nehemiah Smith married, January 21, 1639-40, Ann Bourne, of Marshfield, daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth Bourne. She was born about 1615, died after January 12, 1684. Her full name was very likely Sarah Ann or Sarah, as the New Haven records give her name as Sarah, and it is not likely that he married three times, having Sarah as second and Ann as the first and third wives; his wife's name is given as Ann in all records in other towns than New Haven.
