Hollis W. Smart

Hollis W. Smart was born in April 1881.  He married Johnnie White, who was born in January 1891.  They had eight children. One of these children is my grandfather, Aubrey Hollis Smart, born on May 15, 1931.  Aubrey married Fannie Wallace, who was born on October 8, 1933.  Before Aubrey and Fannie married, Hollis died of a heart disease.  My great-grandmother then lived by herself.  I was told stories of Johnnie White and the rattle­snake that poked its head out through a hole in her bedroom closet.  Johnnie would see the snake, grab her rifle, and shoot at the snake, but was never successful.

Fannie Wallace’s parents were James Marvin Wallace, born June 28, 1892, and Eula Melton, who was born on November 14, 1899.  They lived in Scottsboro, Alabama where James Marvin was a horse doctor.  James Marvin descended from James J. Wallace and Martha Matlock.  Eula Melton’s parents were Lafayett (Fate) Melton and Eliza Derrick.

Aubrey Hollis Smart and Fannie Wallace Smart had one child, Linda Kay.  Linda Kay was born on September 15, 1954.  Linda married Alvurs Mckinley Keel Jr., otherwise known as Kenny, was born on June 7, 1954.  Kenny’s parents were Alvurs Keel Sr. and the late Valeria Thrasher.  Kenny and Linda have two children, my sister Serena Nicolle, born on December 13, 1977, and myself, Fallen Michelle, born on September 2, 1981.
