Capt. N. A. Smith, born in Pickens County, Ala., May 16, 1842, died at Marks, Miss., on November 2, 1922.
His parents removed to Harrison County, Tex., in 1849, and in that State he enlisted as a soldier of the Confederacy, serving first as a private in Capt. Sam J. Richardson's company, from April, 1861, for one year; he re-enlisted at San Antonio, on April 19, 1862, for the duration of the war; was elected second lieutenant, and was in command of the company as first lieutenant when it was disbanded by Colonel Parson, May 20, 1865. He was in the retreat to Chattanooga and into Georgia, in the affair at McLemore's Cove, and the battles of Chickamauga, Missionary Ridge, Ringgold, and intermediate skirmishes. In December, 1866, he served as captain of a police company formed for the protection of citizens and property, with authority to act for the United States government.
For many years Captain Smith was an honored and respected citizen of Quitman County, Miss. He had held several offices of trust in the county, and was county treasurer at the time of his death. He was laid to rest among his friends in the City Cemetery at Marks, widely mourned.
