George Warde Smith was born in Columbus, Ohio on March 23, 1887 and died on February 28, 1919. According to his military record he died on board the SS Rochambeau. Coincidentally his death date is listed as the same day the shipped docked in New York City and he died of influenza. Presumably it was the same influenza that claimed the lives of so many in the outbreak during the war. He enlisted in 1916 and was still in the military when he died.
He married Gabrielle Jean de Lattaignant on October 1, 1915 in New York City. She was born in Belgium. No further information about her can be found other than the names of her parents.

His father was Charles W. Smith, born in New Jersey and whose birthdate is unknown, but who died sometime before 1894 when his widow remarried.
He is buried with his mother Jessie M. Pettit
