This is probably going to be a difficult one as i am looking for a henry smith. I know he was a platelayer and that he moved around the county a lot. I do not know his age or place of bith. Wife: Alice smith age 22 b. farnworth lancashire. Son: Jabez smith 1 b. rochester kent. Could anyone do a 1871 look up for Kent as im guessing thats where they would be. Thank you. Jennifer
