George was the firstborn of St Clair Warham Smith and his first wife Tabitha Jane Pinkerton. In the photo opposite is George (seated) with his younger half-brothers (sons of Laura Darthula Pinkerton and St Clair). Benjamin on the left, probably 13yrs old, and Thomas Milburn on the right, about age 15. The little boy is George's son Joseph "Joe" who we think is about 4 or 5. Very nice manly picture!

George was only 19 when he married his sweetheart Zettie in Texas. The family relocated to Portales, New Mexico and had a ranch/farm there. Their youngest son Ealy stayed on as a ranch hand and died there at the age of 24.. reason unknown. Ealy and his wife are in a dual unmarked grave at the Portales Cemetery in Section B, Row 30, Spaces 17&18. Zettie died a month later.

From there George moved to Phoenix, Arizona with just his daughters Kittie and our grandmother Olive. These two sisters were very close.
