Compatriot of Sam Davis and cousin of Gen. Thomas Benton Smith, he was a member of Co. D, 20th Tenn. Regt., CSA, and later was transferred to Coleman's Scouts. On August 30, 1864, he was captured by a Federal patrol near Nolensville and tortured to death for his refusal to divulge information. His home stands 7.8 miles S.W. at Rocky Fork. He is buried in a family cemetery on a hill behind the house.
