Newton Alexander and Savannah Bates Smith

It was believed that this picture was taken when Savannah was expecting a child. We do not know who her parents actually were. We have a few theories in the book. We think she was not raised by her birth parents.  We do know that she was a cousin to Lem Bates. In 1891, Savannah married Newton Alexander Smith when she was 14.  We are sure she knew him from childhood.
