I am trying to find info on Mary M. Smith b. Nov 3, 1868 d. jun 21 1929. She married (May 30, 1886) Walter M. Metts, son of George Metts and Elizabeth Sease.
According to a family narrative, she was the daughter of Thomas Smith and Elizabeth "Polly" George. Thomas was married to a Miss Koon before Miss George, with whom he had two sons. As the story goes, Thomas Smith returned from service in the Civil War finding his wife (Miss Koon) and one of his sons dead. The living son was supposedly named Jim.
