My 3rd great grandmother Mildred
M. Hunt Smith is buried in Lowell cemetery. Her daughter was Alice
Mary Smith who married A. B. Walls and is also buried there.
I have a document which states she lived in Lowell (1896-1898 and
before). This is an application for a pension on the Civil War service of her
son John Kelly Smith who died in 1866 of health problems he incurred
while serving in the Civil War (in Missouri). It includes a doctors
assessment of her health (very bad) and deponents Z. T. Jones of Lowell,
and Samuel Sink of OK, et al. She died June of 1898 at
Lowell. She never lived long enough to receive a pension. Though the
family lived in Missouri from 1840 until 1870 (census records), her husband
Jacob Hacker Smith died in Crawford Co., AR in 1862 according to the
application. He was probably down there looking for work or perhaps land.
Her children brought her to Texas sometime in 1874, but I cannot find her in a
census anywhere in 1880.
