Waltz-Smedley Family – Pisgah Presbyterian Cemetery

IMG_1409George Waltz, born October 28, 1801, died July 11, 1876.  Mary, wife of George Waltz, born May 6, 1805, died July 19, 1876.  Pisgah Presbyterian Cemetery, Woodford County, Kentucky.

George Waltz and Mary Smedley were married December 3, 1826.  Mary was the daughter of Samuel and Ann Smedley.  They had at least one son, William, who married his first cousin, Elizabeth Smedley, daughter of Morgan Smedley and Ann Burrier, Morgan being the brother of Mary Smedley.

This stone is beside George and Mary (Smedley) Waltz’s stone – and looks very similar.  This must be Mary’s sister, Nancy, who was living with them during the 1860 census.  Perhaps she never married.

A son of William and Betty (Smedley) Waltz.  A daughter was also born to them.  I cannot read the name on her gravestone.

And finally, one last member of the family, J. William Waltz, son of William and Elizabeth (Smedley) Waltz.  He and wife Mattie L. are buried alongside the rest of the family members.

Three generations of the Waltz and Smedley families buried at the beautiful Pisgah Presbyterian Cemetery in Woodford County, Kentucky.
