Albert Warren Smith m Lucinda Priscilla Stone 25 December 1867

Albert  Warren Smith was born 2 September 1843, the second son of Joseph and Harriet (Newell) Smith, in Ipswich MA.  Joseph was a cordwainer, which is a shoemaker.  The index lists his middle name as Marion, but I believe this was a transcription error from Warren.  The 1850 census says “Warren”.  Joseph had a brother Warren who died as an infant. and Josie Smith’s first son was Albert Warren Hodges. 

Albert is in the 1860 census at home with his parents, occupation is brick mason. Civil war records list three Albert Smiths, and I don’t know if he served in the military. 

Some time before 1867, Albert moved to Lynn MA, where he met and married Lucinda Priscilla Stone, daughter of William and Mary (Hodges Lewis) Stone.  Since our Hodges family came from Ireland, and didn’t start moving to Massachusetts until later than this, I do not believe we are related to this branch of Hodges family – at least back to Europe. 

By the 1880 census, Albert and Lucinda were living on Stephen Street. Albert and Lucinda did not have children of their own.  However, sometime after the 1880 census, Albert’s niece Josie (daughter of George) came to live with them, and was raised as his daughter. In 1886 and 1887, they lived at #1 Stone place.  Lucinda died 28 September 1887, and is buried at Pine Grove Cemetery in Lynn.

On 5 September 1888, Albert married Mary E Breed, and they lived at 5 Stone Place.   They were there through 1890, but by 1893, were living at 119 Holyoke.  The 1894 Lynn city directory lists Albert Smith as a trustee at the South-Street Methodist Church – his adopted daughter Josie’s husband (Frank Hodges) was later trustee at that same church.  Frank and family lived in the adjacent house.  The 1900 census, and Lynn city directories continue to list Albert W Smith, mason, at 119 Holyoke, through the 1906 edition, which documented his death on 3 August 1905.    Albert was also buried at Pine Grove Cemetery. 

Albert’s widow Mary moved to 25 Walnut street, and was listed in the city directory as late as 1919.
