Other than Henry Bond's Watertown families book, the only resources I have for these two Daniel smith families are the probate records for both Daniel Smiths.  Daniel Smith and Mary Grant are highlighted on several pages of Roger Thompson's book, Sex in Middlesex, for their premarital romps in the Grant leanto.
