Death: Apr. 13, 1936

Her parents were Laura Smith Bell and Reverand Marshall Bell, she was one of sixteen children twelve girls and four boys.

She was the wife of John B. Smith, mother of James R. Smith, Carrie L. Smith Folks, Magnolia I. Smith Paige, Annie L. Smith, Charles W. Smith, Marshall L. Smith, John W. Smith, Susie M. Smith, Robert L. Smith, Glayds H. Smith Knighton, Elizabeth R. Smith Floyd and Virgil E. Smith.

Grandma was known as "Pete and Peter" She was fifty years ten months and twenty-two days old when she crossed over on Good Friday. Ah! such a ripe age for living. She was my grandmother on my mother's side of the family, my mother was nine and a half years old when my grandmother passed away.

Momma didn't talk about her mother that much, but she did tell me a little bit about her memories of her...She said she was a sweet lady and loved her daddy Pa Bell. She would sit with the little children and share yellow meat watermelon and eat pecans and they would make homemade icecream and she would have my mother sitting on her lap while she told stories about her eleven sister and four brothers... Momma also remembered how she loved porkchops with a passion....

I have pictures of when she was being buried. My granpa and my uncles dug her grave in the Watkinsville cemetery in Georgia .
