Blanch Weissinger, was born in Jefferson County, Kentucky, in 1848 and died in 1897. (NOTE: Blanch Weissinger's birth date provided in this profile must be wrong, since she would only have been ten years old when she married Thomas Floyd Smith.) Of their six children, two died in infancy and the four still living are: Amanthis Bullitt Smith; George Weissinger Smith, mayor of Louisville (1917 - 1921); Anna, wife of Frank C. Carpenter; and Thomas Floyd, youngest of the family.

According to "The United Presbyterian Church in Pewee Valley 1866-1966 100th Anniversary" booklet, Blanch Weissinger Smith at one time served as president of the Pewee Valley Presbyterian Church's women's group, so the Smiths were presumably members there and were acquainted with other members, such as the Craigs of Edgewood, the Muirs of Oaklea, Rev. T.H. Cleland's family and the Matthews of Clovercroft who also served as models for many of the characters in the Little Colonel stories.

Captain Thomas Floyd Smith and Blanch Weissinger Smith are buried in Cave Hill Cemetery, Section A, Lot 144, Part SW1/3, Graves 3 and 4.
