    Looking for a John Smyth of Belfast

    Hi, I am searching for the surname and birth details of the mother of a John Smyth from County Atrim, Ireland and having difficulties due to the spelling - Smythe, Smyth or even Smith in my research results. He married Ann Jane Wilson (1812-1874) who died in Belfast Antrim in January 1874.
