Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jul. 6, 1886
Emanuel County
Georgia, USA
Death: Dec. 25, 1942
Savannah
Chatham County
Georgia, USA

My great-great uncle Neil M. Smith was well known in his home town Swainsboro, GA. He was fatally shot by Military Police on Gaston and West Broad streets in Savannah Christmas Day.

From reports and family members, it seems, that he was shot by the MP as he passed by where the MP was having trouble with some other parties.

He was well known in Emanuel county, being the son of the late Judge David Harrison Smith .

Neil M. Smith's wife died a mere months before and he was making his home in Savannah, GA with his son.
