Owen Smith

Mary Owen and Elizabeth Agnes Smith, Surviving Confederate Mothers.

The following have been added to the list of surviving mothers of Confederate soldiers given on page 254:

Mrs. Mary Owen, of Hawesville, Ky., born February 26, 1819, survives the son who entered the Confederate army as a boy about fifteen years old when the family was living in Arkansas. She then returned to Kentucky as a refugee. She is doubtless the oldest living Confederate mother and sad to say, is in straightened circumstances.

Mrs. Elizabeth Agnes Smith, who now lives at Bauxite, Ark., was born in Dekalb County, Ga., in 1827. Her son, John W. Smith, was under General Price for two years.
