Sep 25/26 Isaac Smith

Isaac Smith was born Sep 26, 1832, he died 93 yrs and one day later on Sep 26, 1925. He was a civil war vet and woodsman. When my grandfather was born, he was named after Isaac - his grandfather. when he was just abuoyt 4 or 5 years old Isaac I gave Isaac II five dollars. That and one visit is about all that Granddad remembered about his grandfather who died when he was just five.

Pictured above is Isaac and Emma Smith not towards the end of Isaac's life. Emma was 17 years younger than Isaac and lived until 1943.
