|C Wilson||George Smith (not) ~ Charleston|
I revisited Charleston today.
Someone had apparently been there looking for George. Anyway ... the mystery Smith monument has been flipped over; and, alas, it isn't George.

|C Wilson||George Smith ~ Charleston|
You may have noticed that I claimed your photo request for the gravesite marker of Adelade Smith; and I found her final resting place ... no problem; however, I did not find the final resting place of George Smith, even though a published transcription of existing markers indicates that he is at rest in a marked plot at Charleston.
I did find a monument with 'SMITH' inscribed on its base; but the upright part of the monument has toppled over ... face down; and it's much to heavy to flip over. If that monument had been near Adelade, I would be more confident in thinking that it marked the resting place of George Smith; but it is 150-200 feet away from her gravesite. Given that he passed on 17 years after her, that may nevertheless be the correct plot.
