Marguerite "Maggie" Smith was born 7 June 1887, the eighth child of twelve of parents, Patrick Smith and Mary Reilly Smith.

Patrick Smith died 8 Dec 1906. As part of the Smith family history as told by Michael Smith, Maggie feared being sent off to school as was done with Philip and Michael, her brothers. They were sent to school in Waco, Tx. Not wanting to leave San Augustine, Maggie married her beau, Bud Sublett on 16 Dec 1906 and thus got to stay in San Augustine. Her sister, Kate also married in order to stay in SA.

One of her five children was Kathryn Letitia "Teddie" Sublett, married to Steve Hicks, who has possession of the Patrick Smith bible or at least she did in 1998.
