Joan Josephine (Johanna) ROCKWELL (nee TURNER) (1868 to 1962)
daughter of Ellen SMIDDY and  John TURNER.  
In 1882 my grandmother
Joan (Turner) Rockwell
immigrated from Ireland to the United States and settled in Boston, Massachusetts.  
She was a kind and loving person who raised 10 children, two of whom died at a young age.  
She was born in the town of Ballynascurlog, Conna parish, County Cork which is now called (Newtown) in 1868.  
Her father was John Turner and mother Ellen Smiddy both of whom were born, raised and died in Co. Cork.  In 1904 she returned to the town of Ballynoe, Co. Cork where she lived until she immigrated, taking my mother and her siblings for a visit with their grandparents. 
This was her final trip back to the old country.  
She died in Boston, Massachusetts in 1962 at the age of 94 years.

I'm proud of my Irish heritage, having grandparents, great grandparents, on both sides of my family, who were born and emigrated from Ireland to this country.  
My other Irish ancestors were the Daugherty's, Hennessey's and Kelly's, whose genealogies I am still researching.  
In 1999 I applied for and was granted Irish citizenship through my grandmother.  
I now have dual citizenship and I feel honoured to be a citizen of two great countries.

If any of my relatives who are still living in Co. Cork or other places in the world come across this page, I'd like very much to hear from them.

James Calvin SMIDDY son of Jesse SMIDDY, Jr., and Agnes RAWLINS

Jesse Smuthers/SMIDDY and Jean RICHARDS

Hello, you have the record for Jesse Smuthers/Smiddy and Jean Richards. 

I have seen another online account that says they are the parents of Sally Smiddy who married Joshua Goad. 

Sally and Joshua are the parents of my great-great-great grandmother, Elizabeth Anna Goad Newport. 

Do you have any more information on Jesse Smuthers/Smiddy and Jean Richards? Thank you, Luke D."

In reply to above -
Hi Luke,

I found a reference to Jesse Smuthers/Smiddy and Jean Richards on the web

It is in Montgomery Co., VA that the strongest evidence of a name change can be found. 
In the marriage records for that county, the following record appears:
            “25 Sept 1790. Jesse SMUTHER and Jean RICHARDS. Consent was given by Robert SMEADY.”
In the complete marriage record (which is only partially listed above), the groom’s name appeared twice – once as Jesse SMUTHER and later as Jesse SMEADY. Notice that consent to get married was give by a man named Robert SMEADY. Typically, consent to marry was given by the bride or groom’s father or uncle, if they were living and approved of the marriage. To me, it seems very likely that Robert SMEADY was somehow related to Jesse.
            There are several other records in the Montgomery Co., VA area that relate to a man named Jesse SMITHERS. I believe that this one and the same person as Jesse SMEADY.
            Together, all of this information leads me think that originally the SMIDDY name might have once been SMITHERS. While we will probably never know for certain the exact origin of the name, without much doubt, the records tend to point to the fact that SMITHERS may have been the early name that changed over time to become SMIDDY.

I also found another reference to them on

    Scottish Poetry Selection - Robin Tamson's SMIDDY.

    Here is an amusing poem by Alexander Rodger, set in the days when horses had to be taken to the blacksmith to be shod - and persuading a girl to marry seemed a lot faster than today! 

    Robin Tamson's Smiddy

    My mither ment my auld breeks,

       An wow! but they were duddy,
    And sent me to get Mally shod
       At Robin Tamson's smiddy;
    The smiddy stands beside the burn
       That wimples through the clachan.
    I never yet gae by the door,
       But aye I faw a-lauchin. For Robin was a walthy carle
       An had ae bonnie dochter,
    Yet neer wad let her tak a man,
       Tho mony lads had socht her;
    But what think ye o ma exploit?
       The time our mare was shoein,
    I slippit up beside the lass,
       And briskly fell a-wooin.
    An aye she eed my auld breeks,
       The time that we sat crackin,
    Quo I, 'My lass, neer mind the clouts,
       I've new anes for the makkin;
    But gin ye'll just come hame wi me,
       An lea the carle your father,
    Ye'se get my breeks to keep in trim,
       Mysel, an aw thegither'.
    'Deed lad' quo she, 'your offer's fair,
       I really think I'll tak it.
    Sae, gang awa, get out the mare,
       We'll baith slip on the back o't:
    For gin I wait my faither's time,
       I'll wait till I be fifty;
    But na! - I'll marry in my prime,
       An mak a wife most thrifty.'
    Wow! Robin was an angry man,
       At tyning o his dochter:
    Thro aw the kintra-side he ran,
       An far an near he socht her;
    But when he cam to oor fire-end,
       An fand us baith thegither,
    Quo I 'Gudeman, I've taen your bairn,
       An ye may tak my mither.'
    Auld Robin girn'd an sheuk his pow.
       'Guid sooth!' quo he, 'ye're merry;
    but I'll just tak ye at your word,
       An end this hurry-burry.'
    So Robin an oor auld wife
       Agreed to creep thegither;
    Now, I hae Robin Tamson's pet,
       An Robin has my mither.

    The graveyard at Killeagh, County Cork, lies close beside the Killeagh Railway Station on the Cork and Youghal line. The Protestant church of Killeagh, a plain but neat structure, stands on the north side of this graveyard, which is somewhat better kept than some of the neighbouring ones. Owing to the rather large number of headstones and table tombs, it presents a more symmetrical and finished aspect than id usual in County Cork rural churchyards, and the inscriptions on many of the older headstones are still quite legible.

    William SMIDDY, Youghal was fined for riotous conduct in the public streets of Youghal, June 1878

    The Cork Examiner, 28 June 1878
    YOUGHAL PETTY SESSIONS—YESTERDAY.
    ——————
    (Before Messrs. Charles Ronayne, M.D., in the chair ; T. Dennehy, R.M., and M. R. O'Farrell.)
    The principal business before the court was a hearing of charges brought against five men named respectively, Ahern, SMIDDY, M'Carthy, and Michael and Maurice Lynch, for riotous conduct in the public streets of Youghal on the 20th instant.
       Before the cases were called, Head-constable Barry stated that they were of a most serious character. On the occasion of the riot the police were assaulted by a formidable mob, and had to take refuge in a house where they barricaded themselves until relieved by an armed party of constabulary and military.
       The prisoners were undefended.
       Constable Michael Cronin deposed that on that day week, between six and seven o'clock in the evening, he proceeded with Constable O'Keeffe and Sub-constable Kenny, to a lane off the South Main Street, where he saw the defendant, Patrick Ahern, with his coat off, and a crowd around him, and having a big stone in his hand. The defendant flung the stone in his direction, but he did not believe it was at him it was thrown. It was with great difficulty that they were able to arrest the defendant, who kicked witness, and made some blows of a stick at him. There was a large crowd in the lane, many of whom wanted to rescue the prisoner. Witness and the other constables had to take refuge in Mr. Curran's house and send to the barrack for assistance. The door of the house had to be barricaded from the violence of the mob outside ; there were over a thousand persons there. Ahern called on the mob to rescue him from the police, and said they were no Irishmen for having allowed him to be arrested.
       Ahern, in answer to the charge, said that he was “mad drunk” at the time and did not know what he was doing. He had no questions to ask.
       The same constable charged Jeremiah M'Carthy, Maurice Lynch and Michael Lynch with obstructing him on the occasion, and with attempting to rescue Ahern from his custody. There were a good many others there also that he could not identify.
       Acting-constable Dunne deposed that he was on duty in the South Main-street on the 20th inst. He saw the defendant, Ahern, drunk there and attempting to force his way into Mr. Guinan's house. A man named Clancy tried to keep him out of the house, and then Ahern assaulted him. Ahern at the time offered to fight thirteen “bobbies.” He was flinging stones about him and was the most violent man witness ever saw. He also identified SMIDDY as having obstructed him on the occasion. He tried to rescue the prisoner Ahern from him.
      SMIDDY said that he saw four policemen dragging Ahern and treating him in a most brutal manner, and he (SMIDDY) told them to give the poor fellow fair play.
       The Chairman said that there was a very serious charge against the whole of the men, and it was very foolish on their part not to employ a solicitor.
       The defendant M'Carthy, an old man over 60 years, who spoke in Irish, denied that he had taken part in the row.
       Sub-constable Kenny swore that Ahern kicked him in the leg when bringing him to the police barrack. The defendant, M'Carthy, assaulted him also.
       Constable Cronin said that M'Carthy was the first to try and rescue the prisoner.
       Patrick Clancy, the man the assault on whom was the cause of the row, deposed to having been assaulted, but could not say by whom ; could not identify any of the prisoners.
       Head-constable Barry deposed that he saw the defendant, Michael Lynch, waving his hat and calling on the crowd to rescue Ahern. He (witness) tried to persuade the mob to go away, but it was no use. It was through urgent, absolute necessity he had to send for an armed force. But that he adopted a firm attitude towards the mob the police would have been very badly injured.
       The defendants called no witnesses on their behalf and had no defence.
       The Chairman, in announcing the decision of the bench, said that it had been a very serious consideration for the magistrates whether they not send the defendants on for trial to the assizes. The defendants had acted foolishly and wickedly, and had been guilty of a very serious offence. For assaults on various constables and others Ahern was fined altogether £3 10s. with the alternative of three months' imprisonment. M'Carthy was fined £1 with the alternative of a month in gaol. William SMIDDY was fined similarly, and Maurice and Michael Lynch were each fined 10s. and costs. M'Carthy, SMIDDY, and Ahern were also bound over to keep the peace for twelve months.
       After disposing of some business of no public interest the court adjourned.


    An interesting fact in Youghal's history is that it was the first town in Ireland or Britain to have a Jewish Mayor when a Mr. William Annyas was elected to that position in 1555.
