"DR. WILLIAM FABER SMITH - On the beautiful Sabbath morning of Dec.3, 1916, after only a short illness, Dr. William F. Smith died at Ninety-Six, S.C., leaving a host of sorrowing friends. He was descended from one of the oldest and most distinguished families of Spartanburg County, the oldest son of Maj. E.P. and CHRISTINA F. SMITH, born May 4, 1834. He graduated with distinction at the S.C. Medical College and completed his medical course at the Univ. of Tulingen. He entered the Confederate service in the Hampton Legion in June, 1861, and remained in active service until after the battle of the Wilderness and Seven Pines. His health becoming impaired, he was sent to Chimborazo Hospital at Richmond and while there had the sad duty of administering to his brother, Ralph Henry Smith, who had been mortally wounded in the battle of Seven Pines. After, regaining his health, he again entered the army, this time as field surgeon and remained in active service until the close of the war. After the war he continued the practice of medicine and was a resident physician of Glenn Springs for more than 50 years. Dr. Smith was married twice, first to Miss Caroline Ross of Shreveport, La. ; his second wife was Patra Lee Smith of Glenn Springs, who survives him, with a son and daughter.
