Gray Matter: A music dynasty (10/03/06)
According to my dictionary, a dynasty is a sequence of rulers from the same family.  We have one here in our little town. The Smith family has "ruled" in the field of music for generations. Their dynasty goes back to pioneers, John and Anna Walsh, who came here in 1879.  I know nothing of their musical abilities, but I do know they  were the parents of five daughters and two sons.  The younger son, James, married Catherine O'Brien and they had two daughters, one of which, Marie, married Stanley Smith.  They were blessed with two children, Audrey and Jim.  Marie, herself an accomplished musician, lovingly nurtured her children's talents.  "The Smith Kiddies" performed  throughout the Midwest.  The highlight of those years was an extended performance with the Ben Bernie Orchestra at the 1933 World's Fair in Chicago.. ...
