Smiths and Smyths

I’m pursuing a couple of DNA links on Ancestry to a Sarah Jane Smith or Smyth who died in Belfast in 1922.

Her family came from Bessbrook, she being born there around 1850. Her husband was also named Smith and he came from the same locality which confuses things but I think it likely that she or her husband was related to great granny Mary Ann Smith whose family came from down that way (as did her husband, Robery James Brown).
