    Jefferson (Jeff) Davis Smith, son of Henry M. and Fanny (short) Smith, was born in Kendall County, Texas. Jeff, Age 9, and his brother Clint, age 11, were kidnapped by Lipan and Comache Indians while herding sheep near their home in 1871. Jeff was reportedly bought by Apache Chief Geronimo and made to join his tribe. Mexican bandits captured him to return him to his family for a $1000 reward about 1878. He married Julia Harriet Reed in 1894 and moved to San Antonio.
