[Longhorn Review] A tribute to Minnie Ann (Underwood) Smith, 1872-1938

Material Type: All, books — Posted on September 19, 2011, 9:59 am


Minnie Ann Underwood was my great, great grandmother. This small book was written
as a tribute to a lady who raised 6 very wonderful children. 5 Boys and 1 Girl the
Smith family accomplished remarkable things during the depression in and out of the
Texas Panhandle. Minnie was credited with instilling the work ethic and honesty that
was displayed in the Smith Brothers (James, Porter, Vester, Elbert, and Ruel) when
they opened several cotton gins throughout the panhandle and also opened the Smith
Brothers Oil Refinery in Kermit, TX. Many towns survived the depression because of
the employment the Smith brothers provided through their businesses.
