Gail, I have lots of information on L.R. Smith. For some reason he is listed twice on the Hanover Monument. He was my grandmother Nettie Parker Perrin Jones`s uncle. Her mother was Fannie [Frances] Ann Smith, daughter of Robert B. Smith and Jane Reynolds, the owners of Merry Oaks. Lucian Reynolds Smith was their son. He was killed at the battle of Seven Pines on May 31, 1862. He was a Pvt. Va. 1st. Inf. Co. D. At the time of his death he was acting Color Cpt. He then lead the charge and lost his life. The newspaper of the time has him buried on the battle field. I think that he may have been moved to Hollywood or Slash Church. He was only 18, born in 1843. My ggrandmother Frances Ann Smith was born in 1851, married Marcelus Fielding Perrin and died Oct. 17, 1890. She is buried in the Perrin family graveyard.
