After 20 years and through this blog, I have finally received a picture of my grandfather Elmer Eugene Smith. His sister Grace Smith's grand daughter had located this picture and several others that belonged to her grand mother.
This picture was taken about 1948 in Dover, Tennessee. With Elmer is his oldest daughter Orie Jerlene about 11 years old, standing in the back. To the left standing is Hillman Eugene about 3 years old. On the right sitting, is my mother Lillian Lorena whom is about 4 years old. And on Elmer's lap is Raymond Earl who is about 2 years old.
Elmer died of Parkison's disease on 23, 1967. He is layed to rest at the Andrew Smith Cemetery at Cumberland City, along side many reletives including his wife Leona and son Raymond.
