The Death of Calista Smith

Calista Jane Strong Smith was a native of Ross Township, born in the countryside south of Deep River in 1843. She favored voting rights for women and Prohibition, and lived long enough to see both become the law of the land.

We have seen the Smith family farm before:

That image is from the 1926 Plat Book. "S.A." was Sela, the son; on the 1874 Plat Map the name is "D.A." — Dorman, Calista's husband.

We've also located Calista's parents' farm.
