Birth: 1906

Death: Jul. 29, 1916

Missouri, USA

Jettie (my great-aunt) was the 2nd child born to Wiley W. Smith, Sr. and Julia Ann McClary Smith (my maternal great-grandparents) who married on May 31, 1902 in Van Buren, Carter Co., MO. Jettie's death certificate states she was born on July 24, 1910, however her mother passed away in February, 1908. Her older brother (my grandfather) Wiley W., Jr. was born in May, 1903, so Jettie was probably born between 1904 and 1907.

Jettie was very young when her mother passed away. Her father, Wiley Sr., was about 67 years old at that time and Wiley, Jr. was left in his care. Evidently unable to care for a baby, Jettie was sent to live with her aunt, Alice McClary, and grandparents, James and Martha McClary, in Flat River, MO. She passed away in 1916 of "nephritis" (kidney failure) due to Tuberculosis.

I visited Doe Run Cemetery in 2016 and was able to confirm through cemetery sources the exact location where Jettie was buried even though there is no marker for her. I will attempt to have one made and placed on her burial plot in the near future.

I'm lovingly thinking of you today, Jettie, and wishing we had had a chance to meet you! I know we would have loved you just like we loved your brother, Grandpa Wiley!
