Patti & Polly,
Yes, this Walter J. Smith's father was William P. Smith b.July 26, 1822
d.Aug. 10, 1893 buried Davenport Cemetery. William was first married to
Catherine Gaddis b.Oct. 5, 1843 d.Jan. 13, 1887 also buried Davenport
Cemetery. I believe she was the mother of Cora E. b.1864, Irving b.1870,
and Walter J. b.Oct. 11, 1876 or 78. I don't know if there were other
William married 2nd Mary Devoe Dibble b.May 17, 1842, d.Nov. 29, 1935.
I have a lot more info on William and his family going back to the original
Palatine immigrant. What do you need?
