M, #28953, b. 28 Apr 1896, d. Jan 1965
MotherLana Lottie Smithson1 b. 8 Sep 1875, d. 6 Mar 1972
Biography* Roy is listed as the son of Jonathan Wellington and Sarah Catherine (Nelson) Smithson, but he is likely a son of their daughter Lana Lottie Smithson. He was born in 1896 when Sarah Smithson would have been 45, which is unusual for that period. In Aug 1959, a story appeared in the Beckley (WV) Raleigh Register about a 12 year-old boy, son of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Smithson of Baltimore, having been held in "protective custody" in Raleigh Jail, because he "had no where to go." It mentioned his staying with an aunt, Mrs. Mary Wriston, and his grandfather Grover Greer (father of Gladys, Roy's wife, whom he married in 1945), who informed his mother of his being in jail when she arrived from Baltimore. It also mentioned his "other grandfather", Marion Bragg, whom he refused to visit to pick up his clothes because he was afraid he would beat him again.

The only way for Marion Bragg to be a grandfather of this boy would be for Roy Smithson to have been his wife Lana Lottie Smithson's child. She would have been 20 at the time, and his birth was more than a year prior to her marriage to Marion Bragg.3
