R.W. (Robert Wallace) Smith

HATTERAS NOTES - Our community was greatly shocked this week to hear of the sudden death at Manteo of Mr. R.W. Smith. Mr. Smith was raised at Hatteras and moved to Manteo during his early manhood, where he became very prominent in business, social and political affairs. Mr. Smith was a man of the most exemplary character sterling qualities, and was a most desirable citizen in every term that the name implies. He was probably the most beloved and held in the highest esteem by the people of the Banks of nay man that ever lived in this section. He was generous to a fault, kind, loving and charitable, and many is the poor widow whose distress he has relieved and many the orphan who has found in him a friend and a father. The name of "Bob Smith" has been a household word on the Banks for many years and many is the one that will miss his pleasant call. All of his friends in this section tender to the afflicted family their sincere sympathy and feel with them the lasting grief of their bereavement.  (The Tar Heel [Elizabeth City, NC] - Friday, April 9, 1909; pg. 1)
