New River Notes — Complete

January 21, 2014

After about two years of work we have completed a major upgrade to New River Notes. On January 21, 2014 we switched in the last of the updated files and final page revisions.

In January 2013 we introduced the new site layout but because there were many pages left to do there was a big red Under Construction on the front page. A year later we've finished all of the pages that were on the original site. Construction is complete.

Minnie,Ossie,Wade,Ad,IdaBraySmith0001.jpg352 viewsThis is a photo of descendants of Mary Elizabeth Weaver Smith and James Latham Smith. I will give you their names, left to right, and their relationship to Mary and James.

Minnie Catherine Smith Peaks, b.9-29-1880, d.2-9-1953, daughter, buried at Weaver Union Church Cemetery, Bristol, Sullivan County, TN
Ossie Belle Smith Thacker, b.8-1-1896, d.6-21-2004, granddaughter, buried at Otes Church Cemetery, Bulls Gap, Hawkins County, TN
Wade Palhoun Smith, b.2-6-1875, d.2-23-1944, son, buried in Bluff City, Sullivan County, TN
Darcus Adalaide Smith Cole, b.12-21-1871, d.2-14-1963, buried at Weaver Union Church Cemetery, Bristol, Sullivan County, TN
Ida Bray Smith, wife of Wade Palhoun Smith (I don't have her birth/death dates at this time)

Mary Elizabeth Weaver Smith and James Latham Smith lived in the area known as Vance's Tank (Bristol area), Sullivan County, TN. Mary Elizabeth was born in Bristol, Sullivan County, TN. This is where their children were born.

I would guesstimate the photo is in the late 1930s or early 1940s, because Wade died in 1944.
