RE: Charles Edward Smith Jr
I have no idea how they met, never really thought about it!
I know he had young children to raise and needed a wife to care for them. Although Grandma Smith, his mother, helped to raise them. Don't even know how long after Sarah died that he remarried! Lots of questions no one knows the answer to, just did not stop to ask while the ones with answers were still alive. If you wanted to add his first spouse, her name was Sarah Elizabeth Hales Smith. Sure anxious to get Macon to check out that gravesite!

RE: Charles Edward Smith Jr
Thanks, no I have never seen this picture! Was it with Charlene's pictures? Bet you have some good ones!
So glad to see it! Can you add his name and birth to granddaddys site, all his children are listed but him?
And yes he is handsome! Do you know anything about his daughter, Bonnie Ruth? We think my brother David favors him!

RE: Anne Ruth Smith Bennett
I live in Tifton. 100 miles south of Macon on I75.
I looked for the Smiths on Find A Grave and none showed up. Several years ago I went to the Rose Hill website and downloaded a pic of some of the graves. And I have been there many times but not in a long time. Last time I was there was when Uncle Floyd was buried, not sure the year. But I will let you know when I go. My daughter just retired and has offered to go with me, so it is her decision when to go.

Sarah Letha Smith Campbell
Hi Shirley, Dennis here in Macon. Yes I'm related to Sara, but only as a 2nd cousin of my Grandmother, Twice removed. Or something along those lines. Drop me an email and I'll better explain.

RE: Anne Ruth Smith Bennett
That's great! I love family history too! So glad you have a pic of Sara Letha, mama had one that I know of but who knows where it wound up! I will post a pic of mama later today when I get on the computer, mostly use iPad. Are you retired? I plan to come to Macon when the weather permits and later in the year, want to go to the big Smith lot in Rose Hill. I thought about going to Sara Letha's too but like you said it is in a rough place now!

RE: Anne Ruth Smith Bennett
One twin was stillborn, the other lived a short time. His name was James Eldred Smith. I believe the twins were the oldest of Granddaddy and my grandmother Sara Hales Smith. They are in the same plot in Rose Hill with the other Smiths. That is why I don't understand why ggrandpa was not there too.
Sarah Letha was married to a Campbell, no children! I remember so well when she died, so close to Christmas, granddaddy came out to WR and got us and Mama cried all the way to their house. No phones in the country back then! You probably not interested in all that info!!!

Anne Ruth Smith Bennett
I was excited to start using Find A Grave, I found mama's sister and brother, the twins are in Rose Hill where G-grandma is but Sarah Letha is in Cedar Ridge, they had posted her obit! Never seen that! Also on a whim tried for C.E. b/c he is buried in Panama and did not know his exact death date! So really excited to find these!

Letha Elizabeth Malabar Smith
FYI. Granddaddy's mother, Letha was a Malabar , her mother was Martha Godbee. They can be traced back to 1500's. Letha helped to raise my mother. Her mother had died when she was 13 months old of the flu. These are buried at Rose Hill, along with grand daddy's brothers Clifford and Floyd, Letha' sister Annie. This family is in Cabiness Ridge, lot 5. I can't find out where great granddaddy Smith is buried. He died in 1901. I got this info from Granddaddys Bible, many years ago.
