Braxton Lee Smith

Born Nov 11, 1881 1 mile south of Gilbertown in a log cabin about 50 yards in front of Maude Adams home. His dad, John Smith, was sitting on the porch when his neighbor, Bob Sims, came up and said morning John. John said come in Bob. I have a new baby boy I want you to see. They went in and Bob said "Morning Puss" (that was Susan Carlisle Smith's nickname). Bob looked at the baby and said "That's old Straw." Everybody knew him all his life as Straw Smith.
