Andrew Jackson Smith, Sherburne, KY, c. 1880
Submitter: Nina Young-Bennett, great granddaughter

Andrew Jackson Smith was from Nicholas County, KY, but he resided in Fleming County, in a little town called Sherburne, for the better part of his life. I have vivid memories of my late paternal grandmother, Flora Smith Young, showing me this photo of her father around 1966, when I was just about eight years old. Now, thanks to my father, it is in my possession. Looking back on it with my adult eyes, I really wish that I had not enhanced the picture with the penciled-in features (beard, eyebrows, etc.). Due to the age of the photo, the image was faint--as it is now--and I thought I could improve upon it. Surprisingly, my grandmother was not angry with me.
