correction to a Biglow family page: Sydney Carton Smith

Martha Garvey   < >

My name is Martha Garvey, and my dad, John A. Garvey, was the son of Charlotte Rutherford
Smith Garvey, whose father, Sydney Carton Smith, is actually part of the family described

Though he doesn't seem to be included.
According to my grandmother Charlotte and her sister Josephine, Sydney was actually named
after Sydney Carton, one of the tragic characters in "A Tale of Two Cities."
Unfortunately, I don't think I can readily provide a date of birth for him at the moment.
I suspect my mother may have some records we took possession of when my grandmother died
in 1983. I can also tell you that at least two of the children were buried in Green-Wood
cemetery in Brooklyn; I actually have a map of the burial plot, and visited the graves
many years ago.
Lyndon Peck Smith, who is listed in the family tree, was an architect and publisher who
lived in New York City and the Palisades in New York. He was the managing architect on
the only building architect Louis Sullivan designed and built in New York City. (Sullivan
would go on to design many buildings in Chicago, and mentor Frank Lloyd Wright. Smith
published several articles by Sullivan. )If you search his name on the Brooklyn Eagle
data base, you'll get various odd bits of information, including his wedding

Sydney, my great-grandfather, had three children--my grandmother, Charlotte Rutherford
Smith Garvey(deceased), Josephine Smith (deceased), and Sydney Smith (deceased).
Hope some of this helps. I realized you need documentation for the existence of my
great-grandfather...when I have time, I'll see where it's ended up. :)
