General Notes: Husband - Peter A. Smith
His father owned and operated a cooper's shop at Liberty and Grant streets, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
He was orphaned at an early age, then was reared by Captain Kelly, at Kelly Station. He became a steamboat pilot and captain, so serving through the Civil War period, steamboating through the South. In politics he was a Democrat, and he belonged to the Presbyterian Church.
General Notes: Wife - Sarah [Unk]
She was supposedly born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; but she was orphaned while very young, so that not even her maiden name-the name with which she was born-is on record. It is known, however, that she was reared by Nelson Bartholomew, of Springdale, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.
