    Some sources give his middle name as Louisiana and his occupation as physician, but his descendants say both are incorrect. Genealogy of the Davis Family gives birthdate simply as 1769/70. Letter from Rachel O’Connor dated 2 Jan 1834 states that “Mr. Luther Smith died on the 22nd of last month.” Described as Luther L. Smith, Esq., [attorney?] in Philander Smith succession, Box 100, West Feliciana, Courthouse. 20 Oct 1802: Dr. matthias Willliamson filed charges against Luther for throwing a glass of grog in his face and then assaulting him, resulting in wounded left eye, cut lip and several wounds around his nose. Occured 18 Oct. at the home of Capt. Thomas Young. (Spanish West Florida records, WPA transcript, Vol. 5, pp. 385, 87, 88, 90) Solomon Alston, agent for brother Lewis, sold to Luther 600 square arpents in Feliciana bounded by lands of Richard Swayze, David White, Widow Turnbull, 13 Oct 1797, 800 pesos (Vol 6, p. 170) 10 Mar 1810 sold two tracts of land measuring 560 arpents near River Feliciana, acquired from Champness Terry by public sale 12 Nov 18l05, to Robert C.
