209 of 210 : Smith

My great-grandfather (Smith was his given name) was repairing the roof of his chicken coop at age 88 when he fell. He broke his hip, was hospitalized, and within two months developed renal failure and died. I never got to meet him, but he remains the backbone of our family.

Whose grandfather was he?

He was my mother's mother's father.

I almost did a little listing of who begat who, complete with links, when I realized that it would have been too confusing without some graphical aid like a family tree. Maybe some other day....
