This is my second report of entering Tombstone Tuesday entries into Find A Grave, per my Challenge #22 and #23 resolution. Again, today I am focused on my family, at the Coon Rapids, Iowa, Cemetery, my hometown; this week is Smith (2-9-16 Feb 2010).
I started with my Dad's older sister, Irene Smith (1909-1997).

She has a simple tombstone in the Coon Rapids, Iowa, Cemetery plot of her parents and several siblings.
The other two I did this week are my paternal grandparents, Dad and Irene's parents, William Emanuel Smith (1869-1939) first.

He died four months after I was born.
His wife, of course, my grandmother, was Ellen Rebecca PRESTON BALLARD SMITH (1880-1923).

She died very young, of course, and left several young children to be looked after by her husband and the older sisters.
Families are Forever! ;-)
