Henry Patrick Smith
Birth: Oct. 27, 1838
Scotland County
Missouri, USA
Death: Sep. 16, 1924

Henry Patrick Smith was married to Mary Jane Pearl Smith who died of a heart attack in her early forties.

Henry and Mary had two sons and two daughters.
Katherine Smith; b. August 30, 1862.

Grandfather Smith used to live with our family when I was a child, and loved to get him to tell us stories about when he crossed the prairies to the California Gold Rush, and when he was a young boy and was taken into the Confederate Army. He had many exciting experiences in his long life. He crossed the plains by covered wagon twice, and came west once by boat around the Horn. When he was a boy of 14, the rebels came through his father's farm and his parents hid him in the corn field, as they would force him to fight with them if they caught him. Well, they found him and he had to fight with them. Then the North captured the outfit and he had to fight with them. So he fought on both sides, the North and the South. He was loyal to the North, however. He lived to be quite old, and died of what was probably cancer, in St. Mary's Hospital in Portland.
