I was told by some very upset relatives you took Dorothy from our family, I see you left our data on and even connected your memorial to our xGrandfather.

WHICH BRANCH are you from that you can take our relative from family? Why on earth would you do such a heartless act?
I would have written you personally but you do not share an email address,I can now guess why.

Its contestants like yourself that really change what this site is all about. Yes, your numbers go up but that means thousands of people do not get their loved ones.

These games are cruel and heartless to families.

Kerri,
Would you consider the transfer of Albert Franklin Smith? I would treasure the opportunity. His grand parents are my 3X great grand parents.

Hello Kerri! RH Miller was my GG Grandfather and I am having trouble finding out much about him and wife Eliza. My great grandmother, Leona, was their daughter. I see you posted a picture of their stone and there's a link to one daughter, Mattie. Are you related? I think there were 5 girls....Leona, Mattie, Pandie, Pearl and Liza M. I would appreciate any info you might have on the RH Miller Family. Also, might you transfer the memorial to me if you're not related? Thank you very much.

Best Regards,

Mary Allen Bliefnick

Smith and Hefner family research
A man named Jas. M. Busby performed the marriage of my great grandparents, Daniel Fields Smith and Mollie Josephine Jordan at the Busby residence at the "Old Slew Mill" on July 28, 1887. The marriage license shows both grandparents lived in Pike Township, Stoddard County, Missouri. Stoddard County Historical Society in Bloomfield shows this location as "Mill Slough" which is located at Clines Island near Bloomfield, MO. Is this the SMITH family you are researching on Find a Grave? The Smith family married into the HEFNER family and I can put you in touch with them. I'm hoping Jas. M. Busby is your relative so I can learn more about my great grandparents. I wondered if Jas. M. was related to either of my great grandparents. I've traced the Smith family back to 1794.

Thank you for any response, and I'm hopeful we can assist each other.

Kerri,
I came upon this wonderful obit. Please share it on Albert's bio. The obit even used the same photo, but it is in too poor a condition to add as a photo. Please let me know when the lengthy bio is added and I shall remove the hand written obit.

Thank you for your contributions.

A. F. SMITH CALLED TO ETERNAL REST

Passed away at the Home Last Thursday Afternoon Following Six Months Illness---Funeral Sunday

Albert F., Smith passed away at his home on West Second Street Thursday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock following an illness of about six month duration. Heart trouble, which he had been afflicted for a long time, was the cause of his death, which came suddenly.

Albert F.Smith was a native of Carroll county; Missouri, being born at Mandeville on December 13, 1863. He was the son of William P. Smith and Susan (Traughber) Smith, natives of Mississippi and Kentucky respectively. His paternal grandfather, John Smith, was a| native of Tennessee and moved to Carroll county in 1842.

Albert F. Smith was one of a family of seven children, one of whom had preceded him in death. He was reared in this county and after completing his common school course attended for a term an academy at Avalon, where he obtained a knowledge of the higher branches of learning. With a well disciplined mind and a natural aptness for the work, he turned his attention to teaching which he continued for a number of years in his native county and a part of one year in California. He went to the latter state in 1889 and remained until 1895, when he returned to Carrollton and entered the employ of the New York Store, in which capacity he remained until 1916. He formed a partnership with F. A. Early in that year and started the Smith-Early Clothing Co., continuing in this business until 1926, when he was elected recorder of deeds for Carroll county.

He was married to Miss Maggie Meier on October 23, 1889 and the first years of his married life were spent in California, where from 1890 to 1895 he was in the newspaper business and succeeded well as an editor and publisher. Two children survive this union, Miss Vida Pauline Smith and Miss Beulah M. Smith the former being the present county recorder, appointed by Gov. Park following the resignation of her father several months ago and the latter is music supervisor in the Carrollton public schools.

After serving four years as county recorder, Mr. Smith was re-elected to that office for another four year term but during the later part of last year was forced to give up his work in the office. Failing to regain his health he resigned in January of this year.

Few residents of Carrollton were as well known as the deceased. He managed the different positions he held with ability and tact. He enjoyed the confidence of all those with whom he came into contact and was held in the highest esteem by an unusually large circle of friends. He was a gentleman of intelligence and culture, of pleasing address and demeanor, and he possessed the faculty of making and retaining warm friendships. He was one of the most loyal supporters of the Christian Church at Carrollton, of which he became a member in 1899. No one ever tried harder to follow the teachings of his Master more than Mr. Smith and his death is a regrettable loss to the community.

Others who survive him besides his two daughters include three brothers and two sisters: Everett Smith, of Idaho; Virgil Smith, of Crecent, Ok; Herschel Smith, of Memphis, Tenn; Mrs. Alta Beaman, of Coleman, Tex, and Miss Bessie Smith, of Los Angeles, Calif. He is also survived by two step-sisters, Mrs. Jennie Algaire and Mrs. Ola Graham, both of Wichita, Kansas.


The body lay in state at the Willis Funeral Home and the funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at 2:30 at the Christian Churh, conducted by his pastor, Rev. C. L Bush. Interment followed in Oak Hill cemetery.

Kerri,
I have just added a hand written obituary that is archived in Carrollton Public Library. Perhaps, the portrait should be arranged to be first.

There are more sibling to find and link.

I can help you with daughter Beulah Smith information as soon as I get in gear.

Jeremiah Able Holt
His middle name is spelled ABEL. It was his grandfather's name. He also could not have fought in the Revolutionary War. It started in 1775 and didn't end until 1783. Jeremiah Abel Holt was born in 1811. He also donated the land on which the town of Holt, Missouri still sits.
