Born in Medford, Oregon to Wilbur Jack Whif Smith and Margaret Lou Ella Mee Smith. Having found much information on my maternal linage, I have not been so lucky finding information on my paternal linage (Smith and Kilgore). I was informed once that my paternal great/great grandfather Kilgore was a surveyor with George Washington in the early 1700's, but have not been able to confirm that nor trace either Smith or Kilgore past the early 1800's in reportedly Ohio and Missouri.
The Smith family farm was in Rock Creek, Idaho per family report.
