Myra was born in North Carolina in 1851. Sometime between 1858 and 1860, the John and Ann Family moved to Georgia, where Myra's sister Mary Smith was born in 1860. The next child, Marsilla ("Aunt Dillie") is born in Texas about 1863. In 1870 Myra's family is living in Texas where Myra (spelled Mira in the census record) is found living with her parents and five siblings - George, Louisa, Mary, Marsilla, and Curry.

Myra Smith married Asa Wolf in Bremend, Robertson County, Texas, on July 4, 1875. Asa was a widower with two children. The new family settled in Texas for a while where they are listed in the 1880 census living in Coryell County, Texas. Also living nearby are several Adam families related to Asa first wife Sarah Adams.

Sometime before 1883 the family has relocated to the Indian Territory, Oklahoma. Their daughter May is born there in 1883. In the 1900 census the family is living in the Chickasaw Nation in the Indian territory. Children William, May, and Lena (Lennie Meliah Wolf) are in residence with their parents. Myra's Father John C. Smith is also living with his Daughter and Son-in-law. He is a widower having lost his wife in 1880.

In 1906 Myra loses her husband, Asa Wolf. In 1910 she is living with her daughter Ollie, and Son-in-Law William French in Johnston County. Myra dies in 1912. Asa and Myra Wolf are believed to have been buried in a family cemetery in or near Milburn, Oklahoma. The cemetery was reported to have wooden markers. I visited Milburn in 2008 and was not able to find the cemetery. I did talk with a grandson of Myra who believed that his grandparents would have been buried near Milburn, but did not know where.
