Family of Elizabeth DUNCAN (69) & Ephraim SMITH

117. Elizabeth Ann SMITH. Born on January 8, 1845 in Clay County, Missouri. Elizabeth Ann died in Kansas City, Jackson County, Missouri on December 27, 1934; she was 89.
On July 16, 1866 when Elizabeth Ann was 21, she married John Oscar SMITH, son of Nicholas SMITH III (1823-1855) & Amanda M. ALLISON (1824-ca1905), in Missouri. Born on October 7, 1845 in Bourbon County, Kentucky. John Oscar died in Clay County, Missouri on December 6, 1897; he was 52. Buried in Faubion Chapel Graveyard.
John Oscar Smith was born October 7, 1845 in Bourbon County, Kentucky. He was the eldest of three children born to Nicholas III and Amanda M. Allison Smith. John O. lost his father in 1855 when he was just ten years old. It must have been a struggle for Amanda, the 29 year old widow, to provide for her two remaining children. The 1860 census shows that John O. was by then a ward of Willis P. Collins, an officer of the court. Perhaps this 15-year old was apprenticed to Collins to learn skills of farming, although John later became a carpenter like his father.
On July 5, 1866, John Oscar married Elizabeth A. Smith (see Smith line "A"), in Clay County, Missouri. Why John O. Smith went to Missouri from Kentucky is unclear, perhaps there was a connection between the two lines of Smith families, or because of mutual familiarity with the Duncans of Paris, Kentucky who had relocated from Bourbon County. There may have been a connection with the Civil War as there was much action along the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. A marriage certificate was filed for record on July 16, 1866. Whereby, 'William Warren, a minister of the gospel, solemnizes the rites of matrimony between John O. and Bettie A. Smith, both of this county." This marriage brought together the two Smith lines.
This union produced eight children: Edward (1868), John Oscar Jr.(1871), Mary Margaret (1873), Claude E. (1876, author's grandfather, see separate section ), William D. (1877), Julia Elizabeth "Lizzie" (1881), Eleven T. "tow" (1884), and Ephraim "Ephie" (1889).
On November 7, 1868, John Oscar and 'Elizabeth A. Smith,' his wife, sold a 98 acre plot of land in Bourbon County, Kentucky to his mother Amanda Allison Smith for $625. This property was the allotment of "Dower" from John's grandmother Nancy Shawhan Smith, the widow of Nicholas II. John O. was obviously severing ties with Bourbon County, Kentucky as he had moved on to Missouri.
The 1870 census verifies that John O. and Bettie A. were living in Liberty Township, Clay County, Missouri with a two year old son, Eddie. The 1880 census (see Exhibit "8b" in Appendix "A") shows John and Bettie A. and five children living in Platte Township next to her widower brother Ephraim Jr. and his three year old daughter Lola. Living in an adjacent house was their 68 year old widowed mother Elizabeth Duncan Smith. Bettie Al's brother Bazil (29) and sister Sallie (24) had never married and were still living with their mother. Ephraim Smith Sr. had just died and was enumerated on the mortality schedule of 1880.
Throughout John Oscar's lifetime, he attempted several different occupations. Besides farming and the carpentry of his youth, records show that in the 1870s he ran a restaurant. In 1891, he was appointed Postmaster at Linden, a small town north of Kansas City. This was where several Smith family members moved after leaving their farms.
Clay County Cemetery records show that John Oscar Smith, born in Bourbon County, Kentucky on October 7, 1845, died in Clay County, Missouri, December 6, 1897 at age 52. He was buried in the Faubion Chapel Graveyard located in Gallatin Township, eight miles southwest of Liberty. A gravestone, barely readable, still stands. Bettie A. was buried beside her husband but has no grave marker.
Edward Bazil ("Strawberry") Smith, eldest son of John O. and Bettie A., married Anna Kimbrell, a milliner or trimmer of hats, on August 13, 1891. He got the nickname "Strawberry" because he grew them in Kansas in his later years. They had four children. Eddie's younger brother Levy (Eleven T.) lived with them until his premature death in 1906. The 1910 census indicates that Edward and Anna had divorced. Edward died at Bethany Hospital at Wyandotte County, Kansas on January 26, 1953 at the age of 85.
John Oscar Smith Jr. married Vida C. Breckenridge, a girl from a neighboring farm, on February 18, 1894, in Platte Township, Clay County, Missouri. They rented their house and took in a boarder named Charles Russell, who was possibly a relative of the John B. Russell who married John Oscar's sister Mary Margaret. John O. Jr. and Vida had one child named Edith.
Mary Margaret Smith married John Benjamin Russell on January 28, 1890 at Smithville. They had three children: Ethyl, Ellis (Mike), and Iola, who died young. Mary Margaret died April 26, 1907 at only 34 years of age. Mary Ann Meares of Smithville (see acknowledgments) is the daughter of Ellis Russell.
Claude E. Smith ( was the author's grandfather, see separate page.)
William D. Smith married Etta Elizabeth Mosby on August 15, 1900 and had two daughters, Jessie Mardell and Wiletta E. He died in 1965 in Linden, Missouri at 88 years of age.
Julia Elizabeth "Lizzie" Smith married Arva Hudson, a mechanic and blacksmith. They lost several children but two survived, Elmo and Mary. They took in brother Claude's middle daughter Ruth (author's mother) when his wife Ella May died in 1912. Lizzie's 75 year old mother Bettie also lived with them until her death in 1934. At some point she was widowed or divorced and remarried a man named O'Dell. The Death Certificate shows Julia O'Dell had been a housewife and clerk. She died at Osawatomie, Kansas on March 23, 1963 at 1:50 PM of multiple pulmonary emboli.
Eleven T. Smith died on January 6, 1906 at the age of 22. He was single.
Ephraim Smith died on March 21, 1906 at the age of seventeen, just two months after his brother Levy. The gravestone at Barry Cemetery near Gladstone bears the inscription: "Eleven T. and Ephie -- Children of J.O. and Bettie A. Smith."
