His parents were Emma and Andrew Smith. He was one of four children two sisters Rosalee and Susie and one brother James Smith.
John was a family man, the love of his life was Maggie Mae Bell Smith, they married in 1905 and had twelve children. She passed away when she was 50 years old.
He was really close to all of his children James, Carrie, Marshall, John, Magnolia, Susie, Gladys, Elizabeth Ruth, Virgil, Charlie, Anna Laura and Robert Lee.
He adored his grandchildren and visited them every day he was able to. Bud was what his friends called him, was very out going and he never remarried and he was very popular with the ladies. The two other pictures are of his children, they all preceded him excluding Virgil. He is my grandfather, my mothers daddy. My mother adored her father, she idolized him being he had to be mother and father to all his small children after my grandmother died. He passed away at the home of son Marshall Smith.
I was born two years after my grandpa passed away, but my mother and father did a good job of keeping his memory alive. It was as if I grew up with my grandpa, my mother always talked about him telling us stories about Pa as she affectionally called him.
