Catherine O. Brown was born in Randolph County, Georgia, the daughter of Absolom James Brown and Jane Gay. She married James Jackson Manning Smith May 21, 1861 in Dawson, Terrell County, Georgia. Her husband was a Confederate Soldier. In 1875 the family moved by Wagon to Texas. The story handed down in the family was that she was disowned by her family for marrying beneath her. A list of heirs found at the Courthouse, Mayo, Lafayette County, Florida found Catharine O. & J.J.M. Smith listed as heirs. A subsequent find was a letter written to a newspaper in Alabama by J.J.M. Smith asking if anyone knew about the land that was left to Catharine by her father.
