Jacob Grayson "Grayson" Smith
Birth: Aug. 30, 1876
New Jersey, USA
Death: Nov. 25, 1952
Pennsylvania, USA



Also known as Grayson W. Smith

Son of Isaac Hampton Smith and Mary M. Drollinger (also spelled Drellinger, Drollinar, Trollinger).

Husband of Louise A. Boettner, whom he married in Manhattan, New York, New York, on 24 March 1900.

Father of Howard Hampton Smith, Sr.; Paul Grayson Smith; and Alice Louise Smith Brown. Two other sons were stillborn.

At some point, Jacob Grayson and Louise separated, but they never divorced. The split was somewhat acrimonious, and the family seldom spoke of Jacob Grayson.

My husband's Grandfather. My father-in-law, Howard H. Smith, Sr., once told me that sometime late in his father's life, his father appeared on his doorstep and informed him that he now needed to take care of his father, which he did, until J. Grayson passed away on Nov. 25, 1952.

His date of death was listed in The Philadelphia Inquirer as November 30, 1952, but it has been discovered that this was actually the date of his burial at Fernwood.
