Thriller Thursday - George Bennett Smart and Mary Ethel Boone


Thriller Thursday is a daily blogging prompt at Geneabloggers.com used by many genealogy bloggers to help them post content on their sites. Are there murders, bizarre accidents or other thrilling stories among your family history? Tell us about them through words and pictures during Thriller Thursday. This is an ongoing series by Anne Kruszka at Gene Notes.

Let me show this family and round them out first.

Thomas Crowell Smart was born 1/4/1869 in Stanly County, NC. He married 1st Mary Catherine Huneycutt (aka Kate Huneycutt, Kate Honeycutt). She was born 4/27/1871 in NC. They had 3 sons: James Arthur Smart, George Bennett Smart and Edward Franklin "Frank" Smart. Mary Catherine Smart died 8/20/1902 in Stanly County, NC.

Okay, I've set the scene. That is the family background. Why is this family on Thriller Thursday? There were 2 serious incidents in this family that changed lives forever. 

Here is the article I found online concerning the first event:
1922
Crip Smart Badly Injured By Albert Odell
Crip Smart, a well known Albemarle man and veteran of the World War, was badly wounded early Monday morning by Albert Odell, who is employed by one of the local cotton mills. It is reported that Odell assaulted Smart without warning, that he used a hack saw which had been sharpened to a keen edge. A bad gash was inflicted across Mr. Smart's neck and throat and one or two cuts were inflicted across the left side, sixty stitches having been necessary to sew up the gashes.
It is said there had been some bad feeling between the parties for some time, although Smart had no reason to suspect such a deadly assault by Mr. Odell, and without warning. Odell has been placed under arrest, and will have a hearing at an early date. Mr. Smart's condition is very serious though not necessarily fatal.


The second event was even worse. Here are the newspaper clippings about the second event:
The Stanly News Herald, Albemarle, NC, 11/23/1928
Frank and 'Crip' Smart Sentenced to State Prison 5-7 Years
Judge Stack Passed Sentence Thursday Afternoon, 15 Minutes til 3 O'clock; Jury Rendered Verdict Wednesday Night After Over Two Hours Deliberation
Frank and "Crip" Smart were sentenced to the State Penitentiary for not less than five years and no more than seven years by Judge A.M. Stack in Stanly Superior Court here Thursday afternoon at 15 minutes before 3 o'clock.
The Grand Jury returned true bills for murder against Frank and "Crip" Smart, as a result of the automobile accident here on Friday night, November 2, for which little Frank Newsome, three year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Newsome, lost his life.
Solicitor Don Phillips announced at the beginning of the case that he would not ask for murder in the first degree, but he was asking for murder in the second degree, or manslaughter, as the evidence in the case should justify.
The jury returned it's verdict Wednesday night a little after 7 o'clock after having deliberated for two hours and five minutes. They took the case about 5 o'clock in the afternoon.
Twenty three witnesses had been summoned by the State and defense together, but only part of these were put on the stand. Fred Newsome, father of the dead child, Frank Newsome, was first to take the stand. He stated that he had parked his car near Ed Glover's store and left his wife and children there while he went inside to do some shopping. After the shopping he stopped on the sidewalk and engaged in conversation with a man. He stated he did not hear any noise until the crash.
Silas Honeycutt, local policeman, said that he arrested Frank and Crip.
Dr. Shaver, local physician, took the stand and said that he rendered medical attention to Crip some thirty minutes after the accident, at which time Frank was also present. He stated they had both been drinking.
J.E. Fresson then took the stand and told about seeing the car in which the two defendants were riding. He said that he judged it was going sixty miles an hour when he saw it. He saw it crash into the Newsome car, he said. Lucian Crowell swore that Frank Smart came into his barber shop early that evening before the wreck, and that he appeared to be intoxicated.
Dr. Tally testified as to the Newsome child's injuries. He gave as his opinion for death resulting that the head had been crushed either by some hard object, or by falling on the pavement.
Fairly Huneycutt also testified as to the speed of the car. He stated that in his opinion when it crossed the railroad tracks it was making sixty miles or thereabout an hour.
The State rested at a few minutes past 2 o'clock. Immediately the Defense commenced to place witnesses on the stand. Arnold Poplin and W.C. Underwood stated that they carried Frank and Crip Smart to a local hospital, and that they did not smell any liquor and that neither appeared to be drunk.
Tom Davis stated that he carried Crip Smart, some time that night to the hospital where the Newsome child was. Upon entering the hospital, somebody asked Crip how badly he was hurt, to which he replied it did not matter about himself, he wanted to know how the injured child was. He also cited that Crip did not appear to be drinking, and that if he was intoxicated, he could not detect it. He also said that Crip told Mr. Newsome if there was anything he could do, that he would be glad to do it.
Crip Smart himself was then put on the stand. He remained there for a good while, the State having put him through a considerable cross examination. Crip's version of the affair was that he had been up to town to get some medicine for some of his sick children. While in the drug store, his brother Frank came in and asked him for his car to go to Concord to see his sister. He agreed to let him have it, and they had been to Crip's place of business to fill the same up with gas and oil and were on their way back to town, where Crip was to get his medicine, when the accident occurred.
Crip stated that he had not drank or touched a drop of liquor all that day. He said that Frank was not drunk, and if he had been drinking, he did not know it. Crip said that there was an Oakland car coming down the street, and Frank pulled over to miss it, and so hit the Newsome car.
It was the middle of the afternoon before the evidence was all in. The counsel for both sides started delivering their speeches. After the speeches, Judge Stack charged the jury...
During the hearing of this case, some of Albemarle's most distinguished citizens were present, they being friends of the defendants. A.C. Heath was there among others, having taken his seat in the bar near Frank and Crip, where he remained during the trial.

This sad story resulted in prison time for, at least, Crip Smart. I found him in the 1930 U.S. Census serving time in N.C. State Prison Farm, Caledonia, Halifax,  Halifax County, North Carolina. I was not able to find Frank Smart in the 1930 census at all. I searched all the prisoners in the NC State Prison where Crip was but saw no "Frank Smart". Nor did I find him anywhere else. But he shows up in the 1940 U.S. Census where he is married, no children listed. His father is living with him and his wife. It was such a tragedy and it seems the Smarts were very sorry it happened. It seemed to be up in the air whether it was an accident or a drunk driving accident. Either way the Newsomes lost their little boy and I'm sure everyone involved suffered.

Wedding Wednesday - A Wedding Dress

When my Mother and Dad got married in 1956, she was able to buy a real wedding gown. She spent $50 on her dress. Mom and Dad had a real wedding in a church with her father officiating. She had a Bridesmaid, Groomsmen, a wedding portrait, wedding pictures and a small reception. In our family, that was a big wedding!










Eight years later, in 1964, Mom's sister, my Aunt Judy, wore Mom's wedding dress and veil for her wedding.



Thirteen years later, in 1977, I got married in my Mother's wedding dress.



She got her money's worth out of that pretty and timeless dress. I was very honored and proud that I could wear it. I have no idea where it is now. I'm sure Mother has it somewhere but whether it's in good condition, I don't know. Mom and Dad have been married 57 years. Before Judy died, she and her husband had been married 41 years. Stan and I have been married 36 years.

Amanuensis Monday - Rebecca Louise and Masirah Avery Whitley






Rebecca Louise Boone was born 3/1/1868 in Big Lick, Oakboro, Stanly County, NC to William Peter Boone (DOB 5/20/1834 in Alamance County, NC; DOD 7/27/1911 in Big Lick, Oakboro, Stanly County, NC) and Mary Jane Smith (DOB 5/3/1838 in Stanly County, NC; DOD 1/10/1915 in Big Lick, Oakboro, Stanly County, NC). She was the 8th of 14 children, having 3 older sisters and 4 older brothers (although Erin A. Boone died as an infant). She had 3 younger sisters and 3 younger brothers. Being a middle child in such a large family must have been fun.

Rebecca Louise Boone married Masirah Avery Whitley on 2/17/1890 in Stanly County, NC. Masirah Avery Whitley's name was spelled MANY different ways:
Masiah Avery Whitley
Misirah Avery Whitley
Mariah Avery Whitley
Mosiah Avery Whitley
Masia Avery Whitley
Nazarah Avery Whitley
Misariah Avery Whitley
Mizarah Avery Whitley
Massarah Avery Whitley
Maserah Avery Whitley
Mizura Avery Whitley
But his tombstone has it as Masirah A. Whitley. Masirah was born 7/5/1868 in Stanly County, NC or 7/5/1869 in Stanly County, NC. His headstone has his birth as 7/5/1868 but his death records have his birth as 7/5/1869. His parents were Ephraim Irenus Whitley and Sarah Ann Gilbert.

M.A. Whitley and Rebecca Louise Boone had 9 children:
1) Wade Avery Whitley, Sr. (DOB 8/1/1890 in Stanly County, NC; DOD 2/2/1976 in Albemarle, Stanly County, NC) married Laura Rosetta Deese (DOB 8/5/1896 in Anson County, NC; DOD 3/12/1990 in Greensboro, Guilford County, NC). They had Wade Avery Whitley Jr., Ruthie Whitley, Dorothy Mae Whitley Snow, Robert A. Whitley, Buren A. Whitley, W.T. Whitley, Betty V. Whitley.

2) Camillie Whitley (DOB 4/2/1892 in Stanly County, NC; DOD 11/19/1966 in Oakboro, Stanly County, NC) married Drew Singleton Little (DOB 12/3/1883 in NC; DOD 10/12/1955 in Oakboro, Stanly County, NC). They had 3 children: James Azry Little, Florence Little Aldridge, Marie Little.

3) Lessie Carrier Whitley (DOB 4/22/1894 in Stanly County, NC; DOD 5/3/1951 in Mecklenburg County, NC) married ? Morris (DOB ? in ? , DOD ? in ? ). There is a Connie Leonard Morris married to a Bessie Moore in Durham County, NC. He was born in 1900 and died in 1948. But I don't think this is the same Morris married to Lessie Whitley. I can understand "Bessie" being a mistake for "Lessie" but "Moore"? So I couldn't find a source that makes a connection between Lessie C. Whitley and a Morris.

4) Rose Estelle Whitley (aka Rosa Estelle Whitley, Rosie Estelle Whitley) (DOB 6/11/1896 in Stanly County, NC; DOD 12/1/1989 in Albemarle, Stanly County, NC) married John Bascomb Burris (DOB 8/14/1890 in Stanly County, North Carolina, DOD 1/13/1973 in Albemarle, Stanly County, NC). They had

5) Lillie Mae Whitley (DOB 5/15/1898 in Stanly County, NC; DOD 1/28/1979 in Fort Lauderdale, Broward County, FL) married Doctor Gradon Little (aka Doctor Gordon Little, Dock G. Little, Doc G. Little) (DOB 2/6/1898 in Stanly County, NC; DOD 3/14/1975 in Stanly County, NC). They had Jonah S. Little, Ola Mary Little Lambert, Leonard Alexander Little.

6) Lectie A. Whitley (DOB 11/28/1901 in Stanly County, NC; DOD 9/11/1969 in Albemarle, Stanly County, NC) married Devotion Curlee (aka Dee Curlee) (DOB 3/9/1900 in Stanly County, NC; DOD 3/29/1985 in Stanly County, NC). They had Edith Mae Curlee, Jack Junior Curlee, Louise Rebecca Curlee, Myrtle Ruth Curlee Drye.

7) Sarah Catherine Whitley (DOB 2/17/1904 in Stanly County, NC; DOD 3/18/1998 in Stanly County, NC) married Grady S. Smith (DOB 3/4/1900 in NC; DOD 12/29/1962 in Albemarle, Stanly County, NC). They had Sarah Christine Smith, Inez Rebecca Smith Harris, Cecil Walter Smith, Hilton Grady Smith Sr., Ruth Elvine Smith Griffin.

8) Martin Benjamin Whitley (DOB 6/19/1906 in Stanly County, NC; DOD 10/14/1985 in Oakboro, Stanly County, NC) married Emma Cozetta Helms (DOB 2/24/1910 in Stanly County, NC, 9/13/1995 in Stanly County, NC). They had Clara Mae Whitley, Cletus Whitley, Kenneth Whitley, Roy Lee Whitley, M.A. Whitley.
