1. Aaron Joseph Smith,1 son of Aaron Smith and Rhoda Lewallen, was born on 4 Aug 1864 in , , Georgia, died on 30 Aug 1939 in Munday, Knox, Texas at age 75, and was buried in Munday, Knox, Texas.

General Notes: Source: Smith family records. See Clara C. Smith

In October 1999 Angie Smith said "I talked with Josephine Daniels Sunday nite. According to her (Ezra's daughter) AJ & Ollie Mae was living with her family (that being Ezra's family) in Cleburne, TX. AJ and Ezra had a 'falling out' and AJ went to Smith Co, TX to live with Aaron Benjamin and Winnie. He left Ollie Mae behind because she was sick. He went back later to bring Ollie Mae to Winnie's house. While living with Aaron B and Winnie, AJ answered an ad in the newspaper that Dora Brown had run looking for a husband."

Clara Smith said that Dora had twelve children when she married AJ Smith.

Angie later said "I don't believe AJ moved his family to Munday; I think they were raised in Tillman Co, Ok - didn't move there until after 1903. In the 1900 census the family was in Cullman Co (Pct 7, Dermind) Ala. Arzo claimed to have been born in Mineola, Wood Co, TX (next county over from Smith Co (Lindale)). AJ moved to Munday after he answered an ad in the newspaper where Dora Brown was looking for a husband."

The following stories were told by Mrs. Josephine Daniels, daughter of Ezra David Smith, to Angie Smith:

Odelia, Fanny and Georgia were married in Oklahoma and sprung their guys out of jail. The guys were in jail for "horse theifing." Grandpa Smith said "The devil or the God one had an ill will toward me and paid me off in sorry sons-in-law."

Grandpa Smith was a hard shell Baptist and he was very strict with the raising of his children. He had bought a new pair of black socks that he was planning on wearing to church on Sunday. Saturday evening, Leonard, Arzo and Leonard Brown (his step son) filled the new black socks with ashes from the stove. There was to be a foot washing at church and when Grandpa Smith removed his socks his feet were covered in soot and ash. He was so mad and embarrassed. By the time he returned home his three boys had left home in haste. They took off for east Texas to hid out with relatives until Grandpa was over his mad spell; they were gone for six months.

Aaron married Georgia Emma Simms 1 on 30 Oct 1882 in , Carroll, Georgia. Georgia was born on 2 Feb 1864 in , , Georgia and died on 15 Aug 1910 at age 46.

General Notes: The LDS Ancestral File lists her name Georgia A. Sims. That source also indicated her marriage date as 30 Oct 1882.

According to to Clara Smith, widow of Chester Leonard Smith, Aaron Joseph Smith's wife was Emma Luella Simms, born 2 Feb. 1964 and died 15 Aug 1910.

Angie Smith, who is married to a grandson of Erastus Smith, says her name is Georgia Emma Simms.

General Notes: Source: Smith family records. See Clara C. Smith.

Clara dictated the following biography of Leonard Smith to me (RCL) on October 18, 1999:

Leonard was born in Culman, Alabama and was raised on a farm near Munday, Texas. As a young man he worked for some time near Lindale, Texas close to where his brother Aaron lived. He married Birdie Wilson when she was 14 and Paul was born there. Their second son Barney was born in Oklahoma. Part of the time he was a blacksmith and a mechanic. He said that he was a mechanic for Bonnie and Clyde at one time. Birdie died and Leonard and the boys returned to Lindale, Texas. The Wilsons took care of the boys while Leonard worked. He married a very large woman in Oklahoma and they soon divorced. He then married Vera Nips in Lindale when she was 14. Clara Mae was born there in 1933. He worked as a mechanic there and worked late many nights. Vera thought he was womanizing and divorced him.

He then went out to west Texas where his father farmed. He and his friend Leonard Brown (Dora's son) picked cotton there. When his father died in 1939 Leonard and his son, Paul traveled in a Model A Ford to Phoenix, Arizona. Clara Mae remained with her mother and Barney stayed with the Wilsons.

About 1940 Leonard and Paul moved to Hanford, California where Arzo Smith lived. He worked for an oil company and hurt his back when an oil drum fell on him. He then moved to Tulare, California where he rented a cabin in the roadside Young's Courts. The court was at the rear of the store named Twin Palms owned by the Samuel Purdy family which included Clara Leggitt and her young son Jay.

By this time Leonard also had Barney with him. Leonard was a professional gambler in Tulare. Clara played six-card pitch nightly at the Twin Palms Store. Leonard worked his way into the nightly game so he could meet Clara. He had seen Clara walking around the court and had told Paul "I'm going to marry that little bitch!"

One night Leonard had taken Clara, Jay, and Paul to the theater in Tulare. In the midst of the show Barney came running in saying the Twin Palms Store was on fire. By the time they got back, the store and all its contents were gone.

After the fire the Purdy family relocated to Kingsburg where they established another gas station, a grocery store, and a furniture store. Leonard had moved to Merced to work at Castle Army Air Base. He frequently stopped by the store to see Clara.

By correspondence they secretly arranged for Clara to catch a bus to Merced on December 3, 1941, after which they drove to Reno, Nevada where they married on December 4th.

In the spring of 1942 Clara and Leonard had moved to Las Vegas. Once settled there they arranged for Clara Mae to join them from Texas and Jay to join them from Kingsburg. By then Barney was working in Texas in a carnival. Paul was working at Whimpies Hamburger Joint in Las Vegas. Leonard's and Clara's son Chester Leonard Smith, Jr. was born there in 1942.

During the war Leonard worked as a carpenter. Mostly, Leonard worked at Army and Navy bases in southern California. In 1943 and 1944 he worked for a contractor rebuilding railroad section hand quarters along the railroad between Barstow and Needles, California. This entailed living at some very remote and desolate places in the desert, including Hector that was later the epicenter of the October 1999 7.0 earthquake. Clara Mae and Jay attended quite a few different schools that year.

The family was living in Rialto, California when Margaret Emma Smith was born in 1944.

By 1947 Leonard and his family had purchased an automobile repair garage just south of Modesto, California. Within a short time he sold the garage and property for a very good profit and relocated the family south about five miles to Ceres where he bought a house from the profits of the sale. Lenore Ailene was born there. Leonard had an auto repair and blacksmith garage on the Ceres property. In 1948 a fire destroyed the garage.

For a while Leonard worked as a mechanic for his nephew (Fannie's son-in-law Oscar Banks) who had a vast cotton field south of Bakersfield.

He moved the family to Ridgecrest, California for a few months and returned to Ceres in the summer of 1949. He still owned the house there. His niece Winnie Long Summerfield had been renting it.

The Korean Conflict began in 1950 and in April 1951 Leonard and Clara moved with the younger children to Fairfield, California where he worked as a carpenter at Travis Air Force Base. Clara Mae had married and Jay remained in Modesto to finish high school (renting a room from his cousin Winnie Summerfield.)

By 1952 Leonard and the remaining family moved to San Bernardino and later to Fontana where they remained for several years. He worked as a finish carpenter during the early part of this time. Later, while working at Kaiser Steel in Fontana he had an industrial accident which broke his neck and precluded him from any further strenuous physical labor. He and Clara bought and ran a grocery store in Fontana. During this time Clara's son Jay joined the US Air Force, their son Chet joined the US Navy and daughters Marge and Nora married and left home.

Clara began working part time as a real estate agent while living in Fontana. In the early 1970s she and Leonard moved to Crestline, just north of San Bernardino, California where Clara opened a real estate office and Leonard tinkered with a blacksmith and radiator shop next door.

By the late 1970s Leonard and Clara relocated to Lake Elsinore, California where Clara continued in real estate and Leonard tinkered with second-hand items for sale on their large lot.

In about 1980 Clara retired from real estate and she and Leonard moved to a beautiful hilltop lot in Sage, about ten miles south of Hemet, California to enjoy their retirement.

Just after turning 79 years of age, Leonard was killed in a freak automobile accident. While changing a tire on his daughter's car on the road to Hemet, his own car, which was parked behind her car, was hit from the rear by a drunk illegal alien. It crushed Leonard between the two cars. He clung to life in the Hemet Hospital for nearly a week but died on March 7, 1981.

His daughter Margaret wrote over Christmas of 1999 "Daddy was a fabulous grandfather to all the grandkids. Vince still messes him and I wish Hilary could have known him. She will never get to meet anyone like him. He was very smart in a very common sense way and he taught the grandkids (kids too) so many things they will always need to know through life."

The child from this marriage was:

+ 62 F    i. Clara Mae Smith 7 was born on 13 Aug 1933 in Gliner, Smith, Texas.


Clara married Edwin Darrell Deskins.7

Clara next married Clarence Montgomery Douglas Jr..7

Chester next married Clara Clark Leggitt,8 daughter of Oscar Jack Leggitt and Margaret Inez Hussey, on 3 Dec 1941 in Reno, Washoe, Nevada. Clara was born on 11 Jul 1916 in Berlin Twp, Roger Mills, Oklahoma.6

General Notes: Source: Leggitt family records.

Clara was born while her parents were living on the Pittsburg Ranch north of Berlin. When she was three the family moved to a small two room house near Edenview where she later started school. When Clara was in the third grade her parents purchased some land from the Pittsburg Land Company seven miles northwest of Berlin. They built a big comfortable six room house there where Clara grew up.

About a year after her son Roy was born in 1933, Clara and he went to live with the Samual and Bonnie Purdy family in Carter, OK. Clara assisted Bonnie in the homemaking chores and did the family book keeping. She finished high school while at Carter in 1936. By the summer of 1937 the dust bowl made it impossible to continue making a living in Oklahoma and the family moved to California in a manner similar to John Steinbeck's novel, Grapes of Wrath.

They picked cotton and fruit the first years, but by 1940 the family had become quite successful. In 1941 Clara married Chester Leonard Smith who had a girl Roy's age and two nearly grown boys. She and Leonard had another family of a boy and two girls by 1946.

Leonard was primarily a carpenter and mechanic during the war (WWII) and post war years. However, he was seriously injured in an accident in the early 1950s and could no longer work doing physical labor. He and Clara later had a series of grocery stores and Clara entered the real estate business in the 1960s. She was quite successful and remained very active in that business until she fully retired in 1988.

Angie Smith says Arzo and Orra Anna were born in Mineola, Wood Co, TX. The LDS Ancestral File has Lindale, Smith Co., TX.

The Social Security Death Index indicates a Jordan Smith, born 10 Sep 1904 as having died Jan 1977 with last benefit paid to ZIP code 92353 (California). This is an invalid ZIP code, but close numbers indicate the southern California area around San Bernardino.

Jordan was the baby of the family and they all babied him.

Arzo married Zella Ione Odom on 2 Sep 1926 in Visalia, California. Zella was born on 2 Apr 1910 in Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California and died on 20 Dec 1971 in Long Beach, Los Angeles, California at age 61. Another name for Zella was Iyone.

General Notes: She died in Long Beach, but was buried at the Union Cemetery in Bakersfield, Ca. so she could be close to her Grandson Randolph Robert Jones. Zella added a "y" to her middle name Iyone to be different.

This was very interesting to me. In the spring of 1951 my family moved from Ceres, CA to Fairfield, CA so my step-father Chester Leonard Smith could work there as a carpenter. I was in my senior year of high school and elected not to accompany them. Winnie was the niece of my step-father making her my step-cousin. Winnie had also previously been married to my Uncle Jack Leggitt making her my aunt-in-law. Anyway, Winnie invited me to live with her and Leo and their family in Modesto, CA. I lived there for nearly a year; first finishing high school and later working at the Kaiser Magnesium Plant in Manteca, CA . In about the spring of 1952 I moved from Modesto up to Fairfield, also to work as a carpenter.

I was just over ten years older than Betty Sue and much older than Winnie and Leo's three children. Thus, I really didn't interact with that younger generation of children. Betty's email caught me up on the past sixty years! Thank you!




Winnie married Jack Graham Leggitt,6 son of Oscar Jack Leggitt and Margaret Inez Hussey, on 7 Jan 1943 in Las Vegas, Clark, Nevada. Jack was born on 5 Sep 1924 in Cheyenne, Roger Mills, Oklahoma,6 died on 27 Aug 2008 in Wildomar, Riverside, California at age 83, and was buried on 5 Sep 2008 in Riverside National Cemetary, Riverside, California.

General Notes: Source: State of Oklahoma Standard Certificate of Birth, Registration Dist. No. 65250, Primary Dist. No. 6510, Register No. 28, Ward 178, filed Nov 1, 1924 by Dr. J.N. Cross. Jack was born at 7:15 AM.

Jack was named after his father, Oscar Jack Leggitt. Jack's grandfather, Lewis Fillmore Leggitt, was known as Jack. Jack's maternal grandmother Lucy Graham Capps was the source for his middle name.

In 2003 his sister Clara Leggitt Smith dictated a story of her life that included several sections pertaining to Jack's early life.

"While we were living over in the two story house, Mama became pregnant with Jack. By this time Uncle Elmer had died. He had been gassed in the war and he had died and I remember going to the funeral with Mama and Daddy and they had the 21 gun salute. It wasn't a tape then. It was real soldiers out there with guns shooting at that funeral for him.

"When Uncle Elmer died, because Mama had all of these children, she had four and she was expecting another one, Grandma (Lucy Graham Capps) gave the insurance money from Uncle Elmer to Mama to build a house on her 160 acre farm. Daddy hired a Mr. Montgomery who lived up in Needmore, to build this house. There was no electricity, no water, no nothing but he built us a beautiful three bedroom house with a living room, a dining room and a kitchen. I saw that house in 2002 and still the ridge line is straight and the foundation is straight. It was a well built house and it was the only new house in the whole community. While we were living in this two story house, Mama kept telling Daddy she wanted to be in that new house before Jack is born. He said, "As soon as it is finished, I don't want you in there until it is finished." He farmed broom corn and stored it in the house before it got finished. But anyway, one day, Daddy was gone somewhere and Mama had Hazel and Mildred hooked up the team, pulled it up beside the window of that two story house and we threw the mattresses out into the wagon and we took them all over to the new house. When Daddy got home, we had moved. He never forgave us and he never painted the house. The paint stayed in the old dug out until I left there when I was 16. He never used it. He stayed mad at Mama over that all of that time. But Mama was in her new house when Jack was born in September of 1924.
...
"When Jack was maybe a year or so old, Mama always kept tubs at the corner of the house to catch the rain water so that we would have water to wash our hair that was soft. One day Jack was out playing and the horses got out and came up to drink out of this tub of water. Old John stood between Jack and the other horses until they all left so that he wouldn't get hurt. After that, she was Daddy's favorite. One day while he was riding Polly, who was a very feisty horse, she threw him off and he fell into some tall grass and punctured his ear drum. He didn't like Polly after that.
...
"We had a big trough where we fed the horses, and of course those horses are big. I was supposed to be watching Jack and he got under the fence and got over in with those horses. Daddy came and got him out and gave me a spanking because I let him get in there. I didn't take good care of him.
...
"We grew a lot of cotton but we never did pick cotton like they did in some places. We just pulled the bolls and all. Then we would have to get up in the wagon and tromp it down and stamp it down. Daddy would take the wagon into Sayre to the cotton gin. It would take him over night to go down there. Sometimes Jack would go with him. They had rooms like a little hotel over at the wagon yard. They would rent a room and stay all night and come back the next day.
...
"We had lots of accidents, maybe not so many considering where we lived and the conditions. Jack fell one time on a pitch fork and one time he fell on a chicken trough and cut around his eye.
...
"Chester was born on December 1st, 1942. We had a pretty good size houseful. Daddy was there, Jack had come in from Seattle, we had Clara, Jay and Barney and we had the baby. But we made it and I don't remember ever having any difficulties except just the normal ones of just trying to keep enough food and cook on a little gasoline stove. We made it just fine. Daddy went back to Oklahoma and Jack had come from Seattle. He had met Winnie and they got married.
...
"Anyone could work in the factories during the war but Nathan Meehan didn't want his wife, Jack's sister Hazel working in any kind of a dangerous job, but he finally decided to let her go to work, stamping labels on boxes. She was doing these boxes when a crane operator knocked a big stack of boxes down and hit her in the back and that killed her. He took the kids and went back to Oklahoma with her. After Jack and I couldn't get a tire to go we went on a train. The train went through Cheyenne, WY and then down through Denver and Amarillo and finally got to Sayre. By the time we finally got there she had already been buried. There was a snow storm and it was cold. Chester was sick. Jack nearly froze to death. He hadn't worn warm clothing and we had to wait till Leonard and Winnie got money together to send us so we could come home.

"We finally got home and one of my brilliant ideas, instead of going all the way through Los Angeles and back up to Las Vegas was, if we got off at Kingman and called Leonard and he could come up and get us and we would save a whole day. That's what we did. We stood around there and finally Leonard and Winnie came and got me, Jack and Chester.

"Jack had married Winnie and they had a little girl named Betty Sue and he was in the Navy. She came to visit us with her baby and her car and Paul had a car and we still had a 37 Ford so we lined up and took off to the country. We had a little tire trouble but we made it down through Bakersfield and got all the way up to Ceres, CA. which is just south of Modesto. We had tried to stop at the trailer park but they said, we can't let a mess like this in here. You can't come in. We had a dog with pups and all these kids and cars and trailers. We were a bunch poor Okie looking people. We found a ranch that would hire pickers and they had a place for parking and the showers. So we all took a shower. Winnie and Paul picked peaches one day. We were all cleaned up so we decided to go up the road. We went up the road about a mile and saw a little garage on the side of the road and we pulled in. This guys name was Bob Patton and Leonard asked him what he was going to do and he said we would go back to trucking if he could sell this garage. He said he would take $600 so Leonard pealed off $600 and gave it to him. He picked up his tools and left and we pulled our trailers in behind. We had no water or electricity or nothing but we did have a place we could park.

"We had got this house (in Ceres) and it had a living room and a kitchen and another little room and a bathroom. Leonard always made friends and he had made a friend with a fellow named Cecile who made cement shingles. While he was over at Cecil's and his wife's house he met a young man and woman, Dale Williams and his wife Juanita. They had a little boy, Phillip. We got acquainted with them. Juanita was a very beautiful young lady. All the guys would run after her and then my brother Jack came. He and Winnie had gotten a divorce. Winnie had lived with us while Jack was in the navy and she had met a truck driver named Leo Summerville while working in a cafe. She got a divorce and married him. Jack was there with us and he and Juanita fell in love with each other but Dale and Juanita went back to Arkansas and Jack went back in the Navy.

"He was stationed in Olathe, Kansas. While Juanita and Dale were in Arkansas, Gary was born and Dale got killed in a fire. Then Juanita called me and wanted to know where Jack was and I told her. Then they got married. Later on they had Judy."

(You may read Clara's full story at
http://freepages.family.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~royc/Mom%20Smith's%20Story.doc)

After high school Jack went to mechanics school.

Jack joined the United States Navy during World War II where he received training in electronics. After the war he established a successful television repair business.

At an Elks meeting in 1995 I overheard Jack tell the story that after he had joined the Navy, he was in San Diego and was awaiting to ship out for the Pacific on the US'S Franklin, an aircraft carrier. Just a day or so before the departure of his ship he developed a tooth ache. He was sent to a dentist at Balboa Hospital and relieved from his assignment on that ship. He later heard that the ship had been sunk by the Japanese and only three sailors had survived.

Jack is the younger brother of Clara Leggitt who married Leonard Smith. Jack married Leonard's niece Winnie Long, daughter of Viola Smith Long. This created a minor problem with Clara's and Leonard's children. Did they call Jack's wife "Cousin Winnie or Aunt Winnie?"

He worked in television repair after the Navy. He and his wife Juanita owned J & J TV in Fontana for many years.

Jack was very active in Elks and VFW activities in Elsinore. He was also very active with the Elsinore Elks RV club. He sponsored his nephew, Roy Leggitt, who joined the Elsinore Elks Lodge in 1995. Roy had just purchased an RV and he also went on several camping trips with Jack and his wife Maxine along with other Elk RV club members.

Jack was in relatively good health until the fall that is mentioned in the following email.

On August 27th 2008 I sent the following email to Jack's relatives:

Subject: Jack Graham Leggitt 5 September 1924 - 27 August 2008

This morning at a little after 10:00 AM, Mickey Leggitt, Gary Leggitt's son and Jack Leggitt's grandson called me to tell me his grandfather had just died at his home in Wildamar, California. Mickey had driven down from Sacramento late last night. My mother, Jack's sister Clara Smith had been with Jack at his home for the last few days.

On Memorial Day Jack had been participating in a Veterans of Foreign Wars memorial service at a local cemetery, had tripped on a tombstone and fell. He cracked some bones in his back and was limited in his mobility afterwards. Later during a CAT scan it was determined he had adrenal cancer.

Jack's sisters Kate from Oklahoma and Mae from Denver had just spent a few days with him a couple weeks ago. We also had a Smith/Leggitt picnic on August 10 where many of Jack's friends and relatives visited with him a little before he tired and grandson Mickey drove him home.

Mickey said there would be a service later but he was not sure of the date and time. I will pass that information on when I receive it.

Uncle Jack was a great man and we will miss him terribly,

Roy and Darlene Leggitt

Mae later said that Clara was holding her brother's hand when he passed. Clara said that Jack had passed at 9:30 that morning.

The preliminary results of his death is that it was caused by critical obstructive pulmonary desease (COPD)and adrenal cancer.

Published in the San Bernardino Sun on 9/4/2008

61. Barney Aaron Smith 7 was born on 11 Jun 1926 in Sickler, Caddo, Oklahoma and died on 13 May 2002 in Perris, Riverside, California11 at age 75.

General Notes: In his later years, Barney could not recall whether he was born in Oklahoma or Texas. After his death we assumed he had been born in Oklahoma. However, recently (in 2004) I found Barney A. and Paul W. Smith in the 1930 census for Texas, Wood County, Justice Precinct 2, living with their grandparents B. A. and Rhoda Wilson. However, his step-mother, Clara Smith, insists that Barney was born in a small town named Sickles just west and south of Oklahoma City. She recalls visiting there sometime in the 40's with Leonard Smith, Barney's father.

Clara said Barney's mother, Birdie, died shortly after his birth and Leonard had to put the young boys with their grandparents for a while. Paul related to Clara that he and Barney had lived with several different families before they all came to California.

I (RCL) have an interesting story about this. In late 1996 Darlene and I were traveling along coastal Oregon in our RV. I needed some work done on the RV and was referred to an RV service facility just south of Newport. When we drove in it was raining quite heavily and I rushed into the sales floor. The salesperson said I needed to speak with the service manager. We walked back into the service area just in time to see an individual driving a fork lift pull a boat in the work area. He was wearing a rain hood but in the back of my mind I noted how much he resembled my sister's ex-husband Clarence Douglas. After he dismounted from the fork lift I started describing my problem to him. After a few seconds, he cocked his head to one side and said, "Aren't you my Uncle Roy?" It was Lance!

In 2003 Lance opened his own RV repair facility on Highway 101 just north of Newport. I think his mother influenced the name of his new business. He called it Lance's Discount RV Services (his mother calls her business Discount Realty.)

He is presently Assistant Senior Patrol Leader and next year he will be Senior Patrtol Leader. At his last Boy Scout meeting he earned the Buck Skin Award and the Gold Medal, the only one from his area to achieve this award. When Andrew becomes an Eagle Scout, his parents and Douglas grand-parents will reward him with a car/truck. This should keep him motivated.
