Children l to r - Goldie, Clyde, Audrie, Georgia

Lind Smith was one of fourteen children of Lindsey Epison Smith and a devoutly religious man. He married Roxie Ellen Nida  on 28 Mar 1915 at Newton. They had eight children and lived on a farm at Stoney Lonesome, a branch of Grannies Creek. He died in the snow on the road while walking to church services. Lindsey and Roxie are buried in the Smith Cemetery on Stony Lonesome near Newton, WV. The family Bible gives "Rocksey's" birth date as September 7, 1899. However, the Roane County Birth Records gives a birth date of 18 Jul 1898 and in another entry as 05 Sep 1900. I have accepted the family Bible as the correct date. Roxie helped to care for her sister, Annie Hensley, after Annie had a stroke.

The Amma School, a two room school with kitchen, is now the Amma Senior Citizens building. I attended this school from 1937 to 1943. Changes noted recently were air conditioners, a ramp for the handicapped, and a well house has been built which now has an electric pump. My teachers were Maxine (Carper) Byrd, Lena Cobb, Madge (Looney) Crane, Orva (Engle) Malm, and Dewey Ashley. The bathrooms were about thirty yards to the east of this building, one for the boys and one for the girls.  There are plans to tear down this building and construct a new one for the Senior Citizens Activities when adequate funds are available. Most all of the one room and two room schools in Roane County have now been torn down. My mother, Ruby (Looney) Nida, taught at many of them including Amma, Newton, Pine Grove, Sunny Hill, Big Pigeon, Beech Hill, Roadside and probably others that I have forgotten.
