8 According to an account left by his son, Francis Marion Smith, Nathan Foster Smith "did not write or keep any accounts" and lost track of his year of birth. The same account states that N.F. Smith had a great deal of sickness as a child and, as soon as his father and mother had died (the latter in 1820) N.F. Smith left Wilkes County and moved to "middle Georgia". While N.F. Smith received several legacies of cash and land under the Will of his father, Nathan Smith, he did not appear to have prospered. When he moved to Newton County in about 1821, he may have been encouraged to do so by his aunt, Elizabeth (Zechie) Smith, who had married William Chaffin, Jr. and moved to Walton (later Newton) County shortly before that time. According to his son, Francis Marion Smith, after his daughter Frances and her husband John F. Clifton moved to Arkansas in the Fall of 1857, Nathan Foster Smith and his wife followed in March of 1858. They settled in Pulaski County, Arkansas, 25 miles north of Little Rock. The country was unhealthy, and the family had much sickness. After the War Nathan's health was broken, and he died in December 1866. [Source: Frances Marion Smith, is the source of the only first-hand information we have about the Smith family, resulting from two letters he wrote to his niece, Annie Thompson Smith, in 1908.] The Centennial History of Arkansas Methodism, 1815-1935, contains a brief biography of Frances Marion Smith. He joined the Confederate Army in June 1862 and served until the end of the War. Smith, Nathan Foster (I10140)

Transcript: from Coweta County Chronicles by Mary G. Jones

Macedonia Baptist Church was constituted August 20, 1827, by Rev. James Reeves and Rev. Cyrus White, with Allen Gay, Revolutionary Soldier, Ann Gay, Nicholas Dyer, Moses Kelly, Moses Shelley, Wm. Bullard, Deborah Doster, Elizabeth Dyer, Sarah Jennings, Martha Haney and Harriet Dyer, members.

The son of Thomas Gay and Frances Patience McDaniel Gay, Allen Gay began his Revolutionary War service when only sixteen years of age, volunteering to act as a substitute for his father, who had been summoned to appear at the high hills of Santee for twelve months' service in the North Carolina Militia. He was attached to a battalion belonging to General Nathaniel Greene's army. At the battle of Eutaw Springs, the company to which he was attached was a part of the advance, and he displayed a courage which would have done honor to veterans. Upon this occasion he actually took five of the enemy as prisoners.

After the war he moved to Georgia: first to Washington County, next to Hancock, County and finally to Coweta County. He married three times: first to Celia Rae Elbert in 1785; second to Abigail Castleberry on September 5, 1787 and then on October 1, 1824 to Ann Pickron Barton. Allen Gay died in Coweta County at the age of eighty-two. He was a worthy member of the Baptist Church and records indicate that the Macedonia Baptist Church was founded in his home in 1828.

17 Anna was a true Matriarch. She was held in the highest esteem, and her views and opinions were valued greatly. She was very wise. She set the pace from the beginning. Her children, grandchildren and gr-greatchildren still benefit from her presence in their lives. The first Christmas without her was aptly put by her gr-greatdaughter, Marissa. She was eleven then. At the family gathering, she looked at the spot on the sofa where Anna always sat and said, "Who would have thought one little old lady could have made such a difference." High compliment! Anna saw to it her children were raised as Christians. [Descendants of Smith form sent by her daughter, Mary Sue (O'Neal) Perkins, Jun 2010] Sebille, Anna Mary (I18132)

Newspaper Issue of December 2, 1965

QUITE A CONTRAST IN CLOTHING 1915 - 1965
(Photo of Mr. and Mrs. George Washington Gay)

The above photograph was submitted to the Bowdon Bulletin by Robert N. Gay, grandson, who lives in the Sandy Flat Community. His grandparents, the late Mr. and Mrs. George Washingon Gay, were natives of Cleburne county, Ala. He helped to constitute the Macedonia Missionary Baptist church of which the late Rev. W.M.W. Anderson was the first pastor.

Mr. Gay was a maker of coffins, a Confederate soldier and served in Co. B 56 Ga. Inf. All the furniture in his home was handmade except one rocking chair. He carried water uphill, a distance of 150 yards to his home as long as he lived. He was twice married, there were four sons, three daughters and 55 grandchildren. Mr. Gay died in 1915 and Mrs. Gay in 1918. However this picture was taken several years prior to the year in which Mr. Gay died.

There is quite a contrast between clothing of that day and the present day. Mr. Gay's pants were homemade jeans, the thread having been spun and woven on the loom. The thread was dyed from herbs. The clothing of that day lasted almost a lifetime. The dress Mrs. Gay was wearing took yards and yards of material as the skirt was full and swept the floor. The material that goes in a modern dress would have in that day, been considered only enough material for an apron. The ironing required long hours as the smoothing irons were heated before an open fire. Most of the material today is "drip n dry" and requires little or no ironing.
