I am trying to find more info on Otis William Smith and Sarah Olive Morrow Smith. Otis was a Congressional Medal Of Honor Recipient. He earned his metal as a Union solder in the Civil War. He is buried along with his Wife in the Arroyo Grande District Cemetery. Actually I have two Ancestors buried in that Cemetery who fought in the Civil War.
There are many of my relatives who are all buried in the Arroyo Grande Cemetery. There was a newspaper article in the Times Press Newspaper for Memorial Day 2011, in which a Man by the name of Ron Williams, was holding a picture of Otis Smith, and saying that Otis was his Great Great Grandfather.
Well I believe Otis is also my Great Great Grandfather. I would like to contact Mr. Williams. If anyone has information about the Smith Petker families in Arroyo Grande area, I would so appreciate hearing about any family history info your might have.
