    Zack was born in Georgia.  A couple of genealogies report the specific location.  The 1910 census has his full name was Zechariah.  But some genealogies say his name was Zachary.

    Zachary Smith
    Born: 1899 in Talking Rock, Pickens, Georgia
    --  Private Tree,

    1910 Federal Census, Pontotoc County, Oklahoma, 9 April, Francis Township, District 256, page 14A, Hse #218, Fam #254

    Zach's full name of Zechariah is reported here.  Some family sources have his name as Zachary, but give no source information or discussion.

    Between 1935 and 1940, Zach moved his family from Paul's Valley, Garvin County, Oklahoma, to Kern County (Fresno area), California.  We find him there with others from Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana and some midwesterners.  Not far away from Zack is another Garvin County resident, Forrest Hayes.

    Zack's middle initial here is A, but one genealogy has it as H.  Most have no middle name or initial.  Family genealogies report that Zach's wife was Cordelia Erwin, and report the marriage date as 4 Oct 1922 in Pauls Valley, Garvin, Oklahoma.  I have not found any documentation for this and none is given on any of the genealogies I have found. Genealogies report their death in California, but I have not found death records in California for Zack and Cordy.

    Zach's death information is reported as 26 November, 1986 in Fresno, Fresno, California.  For Cordelia it is 30 May 1990 in Fresno, California.

    His grave has the birth date of 1885, but the 1900 census reported his birth date as January 1899.
