  • Notes 
    • William Starke Smith, the second son of L.A. Smith and his first wife Paulina Pool, was born at Curdsville on July 18, 1869. As a young man he moved to Richmond and got a job as a streetcar operator. On November 21, 1894, he married Grace M. Burton, a neighbor in Ca Ira. As it turned out, they had only one child. William -- I don't believe he was ever called Bill -- continued to work for the streetcar company his entire career, and he and Grace continued to live in the same house with their daughter even after her marriage. He broke with his family's Episcopal tradition, joining first his wife's Baptist church and then his son-in-law's Methodist church. He died in Richmond on July 20, 1945, two days after his 76th birthday and just a few weeks after I was born.
