My husband, Bruce, is the grandson of Elmer Earl Smith from Yoakum. Bruce's dad, Barney, had a brother named Richard. About thirty years ago Barney's sister Fay gave me a family tree that went back many years. I am not sure how correct the tree is. It has been difficult trying to locate records on the Smiths. The few people that we knew in the Smith family have passed away. Maybe, we can piece together some of the family history.
