Oh goodness, Vera!
You found them in Baltimore? Goodness!
This Smith family of mine...........I tell ya - who would have thought?
Here Bob Hudson and I was thinking that Cooney's burial was in Savannah?
1. So, Dollie is from Baxter Co, Arkansas.
2. She's in Little Rock in 1910 - working her trade - says that she is
married and has had one child and that child is not living.
3. She is living with Conrad Rust in 1920 and they are found in Sand
4. And you found her in Baltimore, Maryland in 1930? Still with Conrad
Rust. Sounds like they for "appearances" they are saying that they married
in 1915 or so. But.........where? Oklahoma?
By 1935, Cooney is deceased. I do have photographs from his funeral and
later of his gravemarker - that is the only way that I knew his dates at
5. Dollie died in 1952; while living in the Sand Springs area - probably
near her sister; Maude Smith Tipton. She had remarried at some point - to a
full blood - Eston Pickett Brackett (1889-1959). Brackett had been married
a number of times and had a number of children. She is buried as a Brackett
in the Woodland Memorial Park Cemetery; there in Sand Springs.
That 1930 census record that you just unearthed is just wonderful, Vera!
Surely, that Leo Rust is connected?
Dollie's brother - Will Smith?
After the death of his first wife; May Cockrum - he must have finished out
his tour of duty in France and as we have discussed in the past - was
wounded badly while serving. I found him listed in Baltimore in 1920, at
the Fort McHenry Hospital there. So, his recovery must have been lengthy.
22 January 1920 City of Baltimore, Maryland census:
SMITH, William T. patient M W 24 single OK IA IA US Army
I know that from vintage photographs that I have of Mother's that he married
someone named Ann. He and Ann had two children; a son named Francis that
died in a railway accident as a young boy and a daughter named Catherine.
I have pieced together Catherine Smith's life from photographs. She married
a Joe Beck and four daughters that I know of. This is one I thought it just
real interesting that the 1920 Sand Springs census records that you sent me
of the Tipton and Rust families - had a Beck family separating their
You are a wonder, Vera and I can't thank you enough.
Looks like I need to explore Baltimore somehow, doesn't it?
