Raised the following children:

We have a copy of his will dated 1913. Had property in Blair and Cuming City, Nebraska.

BIO site:

"JOHN GEORGE SMITH, firm of Smith & Blaco, live stock, is a native of Germany. In 1848 he came with his parents to Ohio; in 1864
came to Harrison County, Iowa, clerked in a store till 1869, when he removed to Blair, and with Mr. Dexter opened a general store
which they continued about three years; he has since then been engaged in live stock and farming; he owns 400 acres of land, 140 of which are improved; married in 1870 to Ollie J. Flinn, a native of New York. They have six children--three sons and three daughters."


Olive Flinn was born in 1847 in Cayuga Co., NY to a James S (b1796) and Luvia (Sherman) Flinn (b1804) (both born in NY).

Let me know what you can and if you want a copy of his will, and daughter Gracie's will.

Also have family photos.

AM MOST intrigued to find out more about Ollie's family.

Does the name Bouernfaient mean anything to anyone? This is said to be John George's mother's maiden name, but no one can pronounce it!
