It is with sadness that we write of the death of
Mrs. Alice Smith, aged 91, widow of Emery Smith, Jr., who was the founder of Clan Smith Society. Miss Alice had  suffered several falls during the past few years, and was almost totally blind the last years of her life. Complications from a fall led to
her death on August 28th.  During these last years of her life Miss Alice had been lovingly
cared for at home by her son "Little Emery" and his wife Jean. They were devoted children and wonderful care-givers.

Miss Alice worked very hard along side her hus-
-band Emery to make Clan Smith Society a reality.  Together they did lots of research into all things Scottish Smith and we all owe them a great debt of gratitude for all their hard work and dedication. She was a vibrant force in Clan Smith Society for many years.
If you would like to send Emery and Jean a
condolence card or note, here is their address:

We are very sad to report that long-time, faithful
member of Clan Smith Society, Dr. Nat E. Smith, passed away on June 5, 2008 in Winston-Salem, NC.

Many of our Clan Smith members have known
Dr. Smith for years, and many of us have spent wonderful hours talking about various facets of Scottish history and all things "Smith" with this unforgettable man. Not only was he well-versed in history, but he was also a top-notch heart surgeon.

He will be greatly missed.

If you would like to send a condolence, card, or
note to his widow, Marguerite, here is her address:

We are very sad to report that Thomas Lide Smith, member of Clan Smith Society, passed away in 2008, after a battle with leukemia. He was an avid historian, being well versed on many aspects of history, especially Southern, Confederate, as well as Scottish history. He was a resident of Alabama. *
