Birth: Aug. 14, 1888
Death: Jul. 20, 1911

Wayne Smith was born born 14 Aug 1888 in Raleigh County, W.Va., a son of George Washington Smith Jr. and wife Emily Alice Vandall. His tombstone says that he died in 1913. However, a 20 July 1911 article in the Raleigh Herald, Beckley, W.Va., Page 1 -- Accidental Shooting -- tells about his death that year. He died "in a most puzzling instance of accidental shooting."
