Frank Vanderbilt Smith
My great-grandfather, Frank Vanderbilt Smith b. 1854 was supposed to have been an employee with CPRR in Carlin, Nevada circa 1880. He may have been an engineer. In 1900, his wife, Lily Virginia Fowler Smith Peters, shows up on the census in Oakland, California married to a Ferdinand Peters, also a RR engineer. We can find a marriage record in Carlin of Frank and Lily – 1880, but nothing else. Do you have any information on these three people?
