Dec. 1. -- Milam County's oldest citizen, Mrs. Martha Smith, 99, died Sunday at her home at Sandy Creek, seven miles from Rockdale. Mrs. Smith was born in Grimes County Sept. 14, 1837 [i.e., daughter of William Henry Walker and Sarah Wilhelm]. She was three times married [i.e., first Jackson Rogers, second Bill Dillon, and third Joseph Milton Smith]. Her late husband, Joseph M.
