"Obedience Smith and Her Houston Lands"
Audrey Barrett Cook is a native Houstonian and through her work in Houston real estate became interested in Obedience Smith as her name appeared on many land grants in Houston. Her book, Obedience Smith, Pioneer of Three American Frontiers, reflects years of research into Obedience's extensive and accomplished family. General Sam Houston's aide de camp, judges, politicians, and Indian fighters comprise the Smith decedents.
