The Smith & Boswell graves
Decades, perhaps even a century, of neglect has left this family cemetery in ruins. On this side of the graveyard, William Boswell is laid to rest with his two wives and their children. His first wife was Elizabeth Ann Smith whom he married in 1825, the year before she died at the age of 17. A year later, he married her younger sister, Phobe Smith. Both were daughters of Fielder Bowie Smith. Phobe and William Boswell were married for almost 40 years, until his death in 1865.
