DUGGER, Ethel Dixon Smith, (27 Jun 1886) 1885 - (Nov) 1974. (born in Broadview Maury County, Tn daughter of Margaret Alice Haley Smith & Albert Newton Smith) Block "K" (8834)

My (Jack Dugger) Mother, Ethel Dixon Smith was born and reared in Broadview, Maury County, TN, 6/27/1886. She died 11/1974 and was interred in Rose Hill Cemetery, Columbia, TN. Her parents were Albert Newton Smith, born 1854 in Waco, TN, , died 1923 in Maury County, interred in Reese's Chapel Cemetery, Bigyville, TN and Margaret Alice Haley born 1858 in Southport, TN, died 1916, interred in Reese's Chapel Cemetery, Bigbyville, Maury County,, TN..

My (Jack Dugger) Father, Smith Dugger was born and reared in Broadview, Maury County, TN, 12/1/1885, died in Southport, TN, Maury County 9/1942, interred in Rose Hill Cemetery , Columbia, TN.

My (Jack Dugger) Mother Ethel Dixon Smith Dugger told me that she rode horseback from Broadview to McCains to go to what would now be high school. You read of that school in some of the historical material about McCains Cumberland Presbyterian Church. She then attended Tennessee Female Institute in Franklin, TN, where she excelled in English, Mathematics and Piano. She obtained a teaching certificate after attending school there and she then became a teacher. Her first teaching job was in Adams, TN, between Springfield, TN, and Guthrie, KY. She next taught in a one room school on Factory Creek, near Campbellsville, TN, where she taught all 12 grades and had two boys who studied college algebra because they planned to attend college after graduating from that school. I really don't know when she taught in Broadview, but know she did.
