"The date of the birth of Deliverance Smith is not known. It must have
heen subsequent to 1659, in which year Deborah Howland, the first wife
of John Smith, was living in Plymouth. Deliverance appears to have been
the first child of John Smith's second marriage to Ruhamah Kirby of
Sandwich. He died August 30,1729, being probably about seventy years of age."
