8.   Erasmus Fulton "Fully" Smith

Erasmus Fulton “Fully” Smith was born on September 8, 1861  in Dresden, Navarro County, Texas, USA  He was the last born child of Alfred and Sally Bryce Smith.   He died on June  7, 1941 place not determined, but probably Brazil.  On February, 3, 1889, in Calhoun County, Alabama, He married Emma Price.  Her parents have not been determined nor has her birth place, , but, she looks to have been  born on July 2, 1867, possibly in Alabama.  Calhoun County is about forty miles west of Carrollton just across the state line.

Fully grew up in Brazil and came back to Georgia about 1885 on an extended visit.  He appears to have been living in Alabama, since information states that he was a “visitor” to Carrollton, Georgia. He was about twenty-four at the time and looked to have stayed about fifteen years. It was during this extended stay that he married his bride in 1889.   It is unclear where all of his children were born, but it appears that at least the first two or three were born in the States (1891,  1893 and 1895) with the remainder being born in Brazil.  We do know that the couple’s second child  (Vesta) was born in Birmingham, Alabama.  Some family sources say the family went back to Brazil permanently about 1896.  Their last child was born in 1907 with Emma passing away in 1912 in Brazil.

After the death of Emma, Fully and family lived with his daughter Vesta until her marriage to, Victor Albert Pitcher about 1912.  She was eighteen and Victor was twenty-one.  Vesta’s older brother, Alfred Fulton Smith , apparently single, was  living with the family.

Fully appears to have been involved with the Methodist Church– in what capacity is unclear.  He followed in the footsteps of many of his relatives (Smith and Bryce) who were all strong Methodists.

E. F. Smith died on June  7, 1941, probably in Brazil.

Vesta Ardell Smith   the second child of E. F. and Emma Smith was born on April 9, 1893 in Birmingham, Jefferson County, Alabama, USA died on May 12, 1980 in Brazil.  She married Victor Albert Pitcher in Brazil.  Victor was born on April 24 1889 in England and died on September 17, 1966.

It is assumed that the family was living in Riberao, Preto, Sao Paulo,  Brazil by 1914 as that is where their second child was born.  Riberao, Preto is about 100 miles northwest of the Americana area where the Smith and Ferguson family seats were located.
