    (From the McKinney (TX) Daily Courier - Gazette, 30 Apr 1907 & 01 May 1907, and the McKinney Weekly Democrat Gazette 01 May 1907)



    Mrs. Mary W. Smith, one of McKinney and Collin county's pioneer and most highly respected women, died at ten minutes to 8 o'clock this morning at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Charles Bush, on South Tennessee street from disease incident to old age. She had not been strong for several years but the illness which was the immediate cause of her death was of exactly five weeks duration.

    Mrs. Smith was a native of Georgia, having been born in that state June 6, 1821, being therefore in her eighty-sixth year. Her maiden name was Mary W. Jones and on Aril 15, 1841, she was married to John H. Smith, they moving to McKinney in 1870. They resided for many years on East Louisiana street, where the death of "Uncle Johnny" as he was familiarly known, and who had an extensive acquaintance throughout this section occurred Setember 18, 1891.

    Seven children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Smith, of whom only three survive, as folows: Mrs. Charles Bush and Miss Fannie Smith of this city, and Charlie Smith, yardmaster of the H. & T. C. railroad in Sherman (TX). She is survived by eighteen grandchildren and fourteen great grandchildren. Her three children, besides a number of other relatives were with her when she passed away. Her death was very peaceful. It seemed that having rounded out a long and useful life, she was entirely ready and willing to leave the scenes of earth and sank to rest as tranquilly as a babe succumbs to gentle slumber within it's mother's arms. Mrs. Smith had been a member of the Methodist church since she was eighteen years of age and was a consistent christian to whom the future brought no fears.

    Funeral services will be held at the residence of Charles Bush at 3:30 o'clock tomorrow afternoon, and will be conducted by Rev. J. B. Gober, assisted by Dr. E. E. King. The interment will be made at Pecan Grove cemetery. We join with hosts of friends of the family in extending sincere condolence to the sorrowing daughters and son and other relatives.
