My grandfather, Daniel Webster Smith, died at age 56 years of age, before I was born. I have questioned my aunts and uncles, and they say he never mentioned his family. None of his children knew anything of his family or background. I found a census that states he was born in Pennsylvania in about 1888. I do know that he ran away from home at the age of 14 and that he lied about his age and joined the navy. The navy kicked him out when they learned his true age. He then went on to be a police officer, a fireman, and several other occupations. He married Mamie Idella Boyer (my grandma) and they had 14 children. Alma, Harriet, Arlis, Margaret, Della, Wilma, Marian, Doris, Audrey, Ethel, Lincoln, Edward (Chet, my Dad), Daniel, Charles.
