Bio and Links
Bio Photo My daughter, Tina, started our family research in 1998. She did a fantastic job of getting it going. She transferred the lot to me in 2002. Crowned me 'Family Genealogist'... My husband has been tremendous help to me, too. I have spent many years researching huge amounts of records, census data, birth & death certificates, obituaries, immigrant ship manuscripts, naturalization records, etc... lots of travel... toured many cemeteries... met some great people along the way. :) Glad to share my findings.

If you are related to an ancestor for whom I've added a memorial and have documented information, please send me your findings or corrections through the edit section of their Find-A-Grave memorial.

If I have posted a memorial of a mutual ancestor and you are closer in lineage than myself, using the edit section of their Find-A-Grave memorial, please verify your relationship and let me know if you would like to maintain their memorial.

If I am maintaining a memorial of your ancestor that I am not related to, using the edit section of their Find-A-Grave memorial, please verify your relationship and I will respectfully transfer management to you.

If you leave a public message below and you wish for me to respond to you, please provide an email address in your message. I welcome your comments, suggestions and questions.

When a Find-A-Grave memorial is maintained properly, it becomes an asset to future generations and a tribute to the deceased person.

RE: George W 'Red' Smith
Oh My Gosh, Patty! This is so great! The amount of time you put into your reply was amazing. Thank you so much!

Background: George W Smith is my Great Grandma Weed's dad. (She was Cynthia Brat Smith Kidwell Weed...whew!)

I found out what happened to the young man who committed the murder. He confessed to killing George for the money because he wanted to run away with his girlfriend and they needed the cash.

He was convicted of 2nd degree murder, sentenced to life in prison at the Missouri Peniteniary. After 9 years he was paroled by the governor.

How are we related? These relatives are on my mom's side.

I live in WA state and just began doing geneology in the last few years.

George W "Red" Smith
I, too, am a great-great granddaughter of George, according to my Grandmother.

Can you point me to more information about his death? I know he had just sold a matched set of mules and was coming home with the money when he was fatally attacked and robbed.
