This is the article that should go with Byrd Smith's deceased children. Article says four children but I only see the two with death dates. I am not from this family I just came across the article and though you might wish to post it, Thank you. Mary

Article from the Abilene Daily Reflector, Abilene, Kansas, 18 September 1888 reads...


San Antonio, Texas, September 17 - At Ravine Station, twenty five miles south of here, the four children of Byrd Smith, all under fourteen years, were burned to death yesterday, their clothes being ignited by the explosion of a can of kerosene. The mother in trying to save them was terribly burned about the arms and face.

Dorthy Ella Crawford
Please forgive me. Upon further research, I found a marriage record for Ella Miller and Lafayette Crawford dated 3 August 1930 that took place in Acuņa, Mexico. The record states that he was 53 and she was 42. Since the marriage year was 1930, that makes it obvious that she was not the mother of his children, as they were born in the early 1900s.

I apologize for my mistake.

I am writing because I am questioning the validity of the connection you have for Dorthy Ella Crawford with Herman Lafayette Crawford.

Herman Lafayette was my mother-in-law's maternal grandfather. Records show that Dorthy died in 1972, and I married into the family in 1969, nothing was ever mentioned that Herman was ever married twice. Not by my mother-in-law, nor by any of the still-living grandchildren. The mother of his children is Mary Catherine Rushing.

Just thought I'd mention that I believe the link is incorrect.

RE: Into The Sunset
Thank you for your condolences, Amiga.
I live alone and stay busy going to the YMCA Mon-Fri where I have made a wonderful group of friends. I also spend time singing and uploading songs to youtube... And, of course, the never-ending chores of housework.
How about you? What have you been up to?

Hola Amiga Maria...
I'm still here, but not active in genealogy since I hit a wall in three of my searches. I don't come here often either. I received an email from a member here and when I came, I saw your message. I wanted to thank you for your nice comment, so I messaged you. As always, it's a pleasure to hear from you.
Janie passed away two and a half years ago on April 14, 2014.
I'm sorry to hear you've been ill. I hope you feel better soon.
God bless.
