  • Notes 
    • He married Lydia, daughter of George and Lydia (Ashcomb) Newman, but then the widow of John Gee, late of St. Mary's County. Records show that on February 25, 1684, the administration of the estate of John Gee was granted to Edward Smoot who "marryed the widow of the said deceased".

      By her third husband, Lydia Gee-Newman-O'Cane had at least two children--Gerard II and Judith. Gerard O'Cane Sr. died intestate in 1713, when his step-son John Smoot was appointed administrator by the court. John Wilder and Edward Ford offered bond. Within a short time his widow died, thereupon her son John Smoot was named administrator. In this instance John Wilder and William Derregoe were his bondsmen.

      An administration account shows that John Smoot while administrating on the estate of Gerard O'Cane accounted for the money due from the deceased (Gerard O'Cane) as the administrator of Edward Smoot as well as disbursements to Eleanor Smoot daughter of Edward deceased, to Judith O'Cane daughter of the deceased, and to James O'Cane "his son". From the peculiar wording of the account, one would conclude that James was a son by a previous marriage, yet no statement proves this fact.
