Norman!!!
Hey, I was just working on one of the Smiths in Williston and saw you on here. GREAT! I had all of Dr. Chester Smith's children linked and made one or two corrections, as well.
If I any of your direct line that you want transferred to you, let me know and I'll transfer them to you, ok? That way you can add information, etc.
(Pull up James Terrell Smith, II buried in Williston... I located his parents, requested links, etc. A real murder mystery in Williston.... )
Sometime when I'm home, if you have time, maybe we can go to the old Smith Cemetery, clean it up, and take pictures. I use an I-pad, so I now do them on the spot.... so addictive!
Bob could bring his GPS and we could record the grave locations that way, too. I'll bring my chainsaw & weedeater... :)
We could do the Smith Cemetery pretty quickly.
Great to see you on here, cousin!

RE: Picture of RAdm Norman M. Smith
Here's his description:

United States Naval Academy - Lucky Bag Yearbook (Annapolis, MD) - Class of 1906

"VOLXIII THE LUCKY BAG l4l NORMAN MURRAY SMITH Williston, South Carolina " Smitty," " Norman," " Enny Emmy" "And I have loved the ocean! and my joy Of youthful sports was on thy breast to be." -Byron. One stripe (1); Severn (3, 2, 1), Bosuns mate. A bow-legged, soprano-voiced son of the wild sea waves. At one time attained the rank of brigade adjutant, but came face to face With the bricks of Maryland avenue on his first attempt. Prefers big ships, and has a pet dislike for a vessel named Chesapeake, otherwise the Severn, despite the fact that he has attained prominence on that " bucket" as first lieutenant and captain of the spud locker. "A mighty savez young blonde, isn't he," and a good officer of the deck. Used to muse for hours first class cruise waiting for that letter from Shelter Island. Can discourse on rates of pay in the Navy, and spiels to the first company in high G on the subject of Lord Kelyin's sounding machine and others. "What makes me feel so Weak?""

Yep, I looked and cited the reference as:
United States Naval Academy - Lucky Bag Yearbook (Annapolis, MD) - Class of 1906

This photo was taken of him in school. If I were you and he was a rear admiral I would send a correction to findagrave.com to include that title in his findagrave listing.

I have a membership to old yearbooks online - http://www.e-yearbook.com/?gclid=CPuW55SP07sCFTNp7AodLUsAmA. There are some old naval yearbooks there. I thought it would be a great community service to upload these to findagrave.com as so many of our servicemen photos are missing. I am so glad that you are enjoying the photo. If you will look at it's caption I am pretty sure that I cited my sources.
