I created this BLOG for my MATHIS/MATHEWS AND SMITH Family Lines. Although these lines in my tree are a rich part of my History, they are a mystery to me. What I thought I knew is not so. I plan to put the puzzle together one Branch at a time!!
WORDLESS WEDNESDAY: ROBERT LEE SMITH 07/26/1906-1976?
This is my Grandfather Robert Lee Smith. Still trying to get to know him. My mom has some good memories. I just so wish I could have my own. Mom says all the time he was crazy about you and Greg, but how do I know that. I was just 2 when he disappeared. So for me, my quest is putting his life together after 1969. I have made some progress, recieved his last pay worksheet from army(records burned). So many codes I have to find out what they mean. Its funny because one thing I understood was that he did serve in WWII. I know given the chance I would have loved him and NaNa Odessa with all my heart, but both left before I really had a chance. I believe their spirit is with me, especially on this journey of genealogy and I am destined to do THEM PROUD!!
