Died 1824
Mother of American Medical Association founder Nathan Smith.

In a speech given October 5th, 1901 Nathan Smith said "At the age of seven years, as a boy who had never been outside of his father’s farm, born in a log house, and when still in a log house, I was called to the bedside of my dying mother to receive her last words. I was the youngest of a family of seven children; I was in my seventh year. It made a vivid impression upon my mind. She was a Christian - a reader of the Bible. She said to me that she wished me to be a good boy, to learn to worship God and to do good to my fellowmen."
