Just happened to see your post while looking for something else.
My name is Gerald Smith and was born and raised in Bonita.
I'm not related to the these Smiths but knew them well.
Mabel's parents were Newton and Pauline Smith.
Mabel has a brother also named Newton who is a Baptist preacher and lives out from Mer Rouge, La.
Now, Mabel was married to a Hays. She had three children; Ronnie, Steven, and Charlotte. Is this who you are talking about?
