THOMAS N. SMITH is known as a man of high attainments and
practical ability as a lawyer, and as one who has achieved success
in his profession. He was born on a farm near Fulton on the 15th of
October, 1867, being a son of Robert E. and Mollie (Norman) Smith,
the former a native of Tennessee and the latter of Fulton county,
Kentucky. The paternal grandfather of our subject, Thomas Smith,
was a Methodist minister and was a presiding elder of a district now
comprised in the Memphis conference of the denomination. He died in
Graves county, Kentucky, many years ago. In this commonwealth the
parents of our subject were married, thereafter taking up their
abode on a farm near this city. To them were born two sons, the
younger being P. H. Smith, a farmer of Fulton county. The father
was called from this earth when our subject was a small boy, and the
mother now makes her home with her younger son, having now passed
the sixty-fifth milestone on the journey of life. She is a member
of the Methodist Episcopal church, as was also her honored husband.
Thomas N. Smith was early inured to the labors of the farm, and
to the public schools of Fulton he is indebted for the educational
privileges which he received in his youth. When about twenty-two
years of age he began the study of law under the preceptorship of
the late Judge S. A. D. Steele, of Fulton, and was admitted to the
bar in February, 1892, since which time his name has been enrolled
as a legal practitioner of Fulton. He is a member of the law firm
of Shelbourne, Kane & Smith, of this city, all of whom are men of
ability, and the firm is winning success in the field of law. Mr.
Smith is an active worker in the ranks of the Democracy, although he
has never sought political preferment.
In 1899 Mr. Smith was united in marriage to Mrs. Sallie E.
House, nee Browder. In his fraternal relations he is a member of
Roberts Lodge No. 172, F. & A. M., of this city; and of Fulton City
Council No. 63, R. & S. M. He is a past master of the blue lodge,
high priest of the chapter and deputy illustrious master of the
