Notes for JASPER SMITH:

JASPER N. SMITHS TO CELEBRATE THEIR 60TH ANNIVERSARY TODAY--ca. 1949
    Caption under photo: "Mr. and Mrs. J. N. Smith, who will observe their 60th wedding anniversary Thursday, pose with Mr. Smith's Civil War musket. The muzzle-loader, he says, is like th eone he hunted with as an Arkansas backwoodsman, when deer ran in herds and wilde turkeys were thick as blackbirds."
    "There'll be great doin's at the Jasper N. Smith home Thursday when silver-haired "Dad" and "Mother" Smith celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary.
    Many of the Smiths' six children, and 39 grandchildren and great grandchildren are expected to help celebrate the occasion.
    "Dad" Smith, who's a sound 81 despite a severe leg injury, isn't too sure the modest home at Pine St. and Garnet Rd. can accommodate "the whole shebang," but he's eager to try.
    "We may have to rent some land to do it," he observed with tiwnkling eyes, "but mother's going to fix dinner for the kids."
    "Mother" Smith's 79 years rest lightly on her grey head as she bustles about the little house, doing her own housework and taking care of the Smith's washing and ironing.
    The years have impaired her hearing somewhat, but Mrs. Smith responds quickly in kind when "dad" ribs her slyly.
    "Yessir, young man," the octagenarioan husband winked, "there's no trick to a successful marriage. I just outfought her for 60 years."
    Reared in the same neighborhood in the backwoods near Yellville (Marion County), Ark., the Smiths met at a country church meeting. "Courtin' was a walking job in those days," "Dad" Smith smiled. Church meetings, and 'play parties' at the neighbors were the main social functions."
    "That was in 1889--snap, and drop the handkerchief, and candy-pulling were considered appropriate for parties." Proposing to his blushing sweetheart was no trick for Mr. Smith. "She kind of pushed it on me, anyway," he said. "She was going with another feller too, and I knew I was going to have to do something pretty quick. I'll tell you though, son, she didn't need much encouraging when I asked her."
    All of which bothered Mrs. Smith not a bit. "Posh," she ejaculated as she dismissed the story witha wave of her hand.
    Jasper was a miller's son (John W. Smith and Julia Ann Burnes) and Elizabeth(Gilley) was a farmer's daughter(George Ann Gilley). After their marriage in 1889, the couple farmed for nearly 10 years near Yellville, while the young husband also worked at railroad construction, mining and brick-making. "Dad" Smith tells of the first brick buildings that went up in Yellville--the courthouse, the church and the bank. Hardworking men were transforming the backwoods into a settled community, and Jasper helped make the bircks work the mines and build the railroads. He remembers with a sense of accomplishment the great obstacles overcome by the railroads he helped push through the difficult Ozark country. Modern construction tools were unknown in the 19th century West, and railroads were built with pick and shovel, and mule-drawn "slides." " We plowed up Civil War cannon balls and muskets south of Springfield, Mo.," he recalled. "In one 100-mile stretch of right-of-way we scratched three long tunnels through the Ozarks."
    Smith came to Oklahoma first in 1879, as a boy of 9, helping his father farm near Fort Smith, in the Choctaw area of Indian Territory. He brought his wife and family to Bixby to live in 1917. Employed by several oil compaines the Smiths later lived at Bristow and Oklahoma City, before settling in the Garnet area about 20 years ago. (ca. 1927) 
    "Dad" Smith suffered severe fractures of his left arm and leg in an oil field accident 20 years ago. The old injuries have slowed him some as the year's advanced, but his mind is razor sharp and dry humor spices his conversation. "Folks aren't like they used to be. I don't think they read the Bible much. But you know, maybe the churches aren't the same, either."
    All of the six Smith children live in the Tulsa area. The couple lives near the home of one son, O. D. Smith. Another son, John W. Smith, also lives on Tulsa Rt. 10 near "Dad" and "Mother." Their other son, A. M. Smith lives at 2617 Harvard Ave.
    The Smiths' daughters are Mrs. Tom Hess, Bixby; Mrs. W. R. Jarvis, Rt. 3, and Mrs. E. M. Edwards, 1638 E. Admiral Pl.
    John Smith brought tears of happiness to his parents eyes when he summed up "dad and mother's" 60 years of marriage:
    "I guess we've got the grandest folks any kids ever had."
