The following obituary was found in the True Democrat (newspaper), Bayou Sara, LA, 19 Jun 1899:
"What is home without a mother". On June 5th, at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. Watson, Mrs. Louis Smith, died after a prolonged illiness. Owing to ill health Mrs. Smith with three daughters, Misses Mary Embree, Luther and Clara Smith, moved to San Antonio, but finding she could not live long came back in May to her old home. Besides these daughters she leaves a son, A. E. Embree of this place to morn her loss. Interment in Jackson cemetery.
What was the maiden name for Mrs. Louis Smith? Was her first husband's name, Jonathan?
Any help on this family would be appreciated.
