Ida Mae Morton, daughter of Susan A. Smith

Ida Mae Morton, daughter of Susan A. Smith, born September 8, 1878; married T. R. Barnard, who became the head of a bank in Island, Kentucky, and who died about 1942.  Mrs. Barnard owned a home in Island, which I visited in 1959.  Then eighty years of age, she was still a fine-looking woman.  She had a collection of fine old glass and china that she seemed to enjoy showing.  Also, she had several albums of old family pictures; among them was a tintype of each John E. V. Smith and his wife, Elizabeth B. Kimbley, which she was kind enough to lend to me to have copied.  She then spent the summers in Island and the winters in Roseland, Florida, with her brother Vig (Vigaberry Preston Morton) and her daughter Mary.  Hers and Mr. Barnard's children are:

Mary Barnard, born in 1900; in 1926, married William J. Cook.  Mary Barnard Cook taught school for a number of years, but in 1959 who was librarian in Roseland, Florida, where she and her husband had lived since he retired.  Their only child is:
            Mary Barnard Cook married Glenn Turner Burns and whose home in 1959 was Bowling Green, Kentucky.  Mary and Glen Burns are the parents of Glen Turner Burns, Jr., Caroline Morton Burns, William Lewis Burns and Samuel Ross Burns.  The latter two are twins.

Ethel Morton Barnard; taught for 28 years at Western Kentucky University, Bowling Green, Kentucky; part of that time was Consultant in In-Service Education at the University.  Ethel married William L. Matthews, Dean of Bowling Green College of Commerce and for many years professor at Western Kentucky University.  They lived in Bowling Green in 1971.
