I dont sadly to know much about George except that he lost his father Stephen at a young age abt 10 yrs old. I only have it that his father was "Shot in the back on his way to a neighbor's house" & Killed by son-in-law William H. Norris over an argument over a still. George attended Rusk Masonic Institute for several months . He never lived in a house without other than a dirt floor, A cabin near Rusk TX is where he lived at one time. His wife's name May have been Ruby S Maxey. I do not know if any children were born to this marriage. George W Smith is My 3rd great grand uncle. His sister Catherine Powell "Katie" Smith Mullins & Husband Alvy Curtis Mullins were My 3rd Great Grandparents.
