Uncle Muncie married Gladys Headden, a daughter of
Ada Taylor Headden &
Winfield Scott Headden.
Muncie's daughter, Edna MAXINE Smith Stanfield died June 25, 2007, aged
84, and is buried in Newbern Fairview Cemetery. Maxine's husband
who predeceased her was John Louis Stanfield. Maxine Stanfield's
two sons are: John Louis Stanfield II of the Denver, Colorado,
area; and George Chester Stanfield of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Of interest to the early Churchton (Dyer County, Tenn.) community were the family of George Washington Smith and wife Cornelia DAVIE Smith. (I suspect he was of the age to fight in the Civil War but do not know whether he did.) "Old" Mr. & Mrs. Smith lived on a farm roughly equidistant from the McCorkle Cemetery and the Carmel Methodist Church in eastern Dyer County. They are interred in Mt. Carmel Methodist Church Cemetery and were good Methodists, although they appear briefly on the very early records of the neighborhood Lemalsamac Christian Church, now called Lemalsamac Church of Christ.
I cannot name all their children, who are long deceased now, but here's a try. One of the sons, the youngest I think, named Rich Smith, married Madge McCorkle, a daughter of Eddie McCorkle, who was the only child of Hiram R. A. McCorkle by HRA McCorkle's 2nd wife: Janette Menzies (McCorkle). [HRA McCorkle by his 1st wife née Margaret Cowan had several children as named elsewhere herein.]
These Smith children are probably not in proper chronological order:
Ambrose MARIE Smith. He was called Marie Smith. Marie Smith married, had a son, and as an adult lived in, I think, Louisiana. A fine deacon's chair at the Carmel Methodist Church, according to its commemorative inscription, was donated by A.M. Smith in honor of his mother--;
Zula Smith Rice (last of Nashville). Zula had two sons, viz., George Marie Rice who was a newspaperman in Chattanooga, as was his wife, but had no children; and David Rice, an engineer who never married--;
George MUNCIE Smith, who married Gladys Headden (Smith). Three children: George Scott Smith, "Baby Boy" Wilmere Headden Smith, and Edna Maxine Smith Stanfield (Maxine died summer of 2007 living in Albuquerque, buried Newbern). George Scott Smith adopted his wife's grandson Jerry Smith who died rather young. Baby Boy and Helen Legions Smith had three children, viz., Linda Smith, born 1949 [sons Alan Kolwyck & Scott Kolwyck]; Randy Smith, an engineer in D.C. who has not yet married, born circa 1951; and Robert Louis Smith who died of a heart attack in his 50s in the Churchton community in the year 2007 and had one son named Chris Smith. --;
Mack Smith, who moved to, perhaps, Louisiana. He was a physician and had one child, Mattie Maxine Smith--;
"Cap" Smith. This was not his real name. "Cap" Smith was at least at one time a captain in the U.S. military. He had one son--;
Homer Smith--Homer taught school, at the end, perhaps, at Trimble in Dyer County. Homer had an only child, a son, who died rather young in Michigan. This son married Vera (_____) Smith.
Leland Smith --lived in Newbern at the end, in the Newbern Hotel which he had purchased. --For some reason we never understood, in his old age Stanford Edw. Cashdollar (my brother-in-law Parker's father) bought the Newbern Hotel which was by then ramshackle.-- Leland Smith never married; his nephew Dr. OK Smith Jr. named a son after Leland. At one time Leland and brother OK Smith owned a large grocery store in the Churchton community. Leland and my mother's father, Ira Mitchell Cope, used to take tours on the train around the U.S. Sadly, liquor got the better of Leland toward the end of his life, but everybody seemed to love him --;
Frank Smith married Alma Parker (Smith), who had a sister named Pearl Parker (or vice versa). Whichever Parker sister it was who married Frank, these two Parker sisters came south with the Mengle or Mengel Farm near Trimble to live in Dyer County. Frank had no children-- ;
OK Smith -- m. Lady Ruth Herndon (Smith). Max Edwin Gregory tells me Miss Lady Ruth was a 1st cousin to Max's mother, Robyn Gregory. Mr. OK & "Miss" Lady Ruth's children: Mary Evelyn Smith (Mrs. Dick) Reese of Gallatin; Rose Marie Smith Smith (Mrs. Dale Smith of Florida); and OK Smith Junior, M.D., of Union City/Martin. --At one time Mr OK had a store in Mason Hall south of Yorkville, where I kinda think he sired a "woods colt son." I loved him and Miss Lady Ruth. At his death he had a good grocery store in "Smitty City" about a mile or 2 west of Lemalsamac church on the Newbern-Yorkville Highway. My grandmother Notie Headden Cope and I used to take in chickens to trade Mr OK for groceries. Grandmother Notie went to town to "trade" not to "shop."
Rich Smith, who married Hiram R A McCorkle's granddaughter Madge McCorkle (Smith), a daughter of Eddie McCorkle. Rich & Madge had Suzy Smith (Mrs. Charley) Dunevant; Helen Smith (Mrs. Norville Williams) (Mrs. _____); and a son Max Smith.
