Sorry I couldn't get back with you. My DSL was down. Had to replace the dish this week.
Anyway, I'd love to exchange family information. We don't have much on John Hood Smith, except what my paternal grandmother can remember. She was little when her mother died. My grandmother was 9 years old.
7 sisters and 1 brother in her family.
Elmyna, Emma Laura, Lois Arlene, my grandmother Vesta Agnes (she goes by Agnes), John Hood Frank, Grace Geraldean (she goes by Gerry), Levina Carmendean who passed away back in 2000, Mary Francis (she goes by Francis), and Dorthy Fay.
