John was born in 1852. He was the son of William Curlee and Betsy Efird. He passed away in 1899. His name is given as "John Smith" age 8, on the 1860 Census record, and (incorrectly) as "James Smith", age 15, on the 1870 Census record, because in both records the Census taker listed the last names of all of the children in the household as "Smith", even though his and his sister Sarah Isabel's last name was "Curlee".

J.T. Smith bought a churn for $25 from the Estate of his wife Elizabeth "Betsy" Efird Curlee Smith's former father-in-law Marriner Curlee in 1879. Betsy's son, and Marriner Curlee's grandson by his son William R Curlee, John William Curlee was the Executor of his grandfather's Will.
