At 88, he is a historical rarity — the living son of a slave
"Long after leaving Massies Mill, Va., and moving up North as a young man in his 20s, Smith’s father, Abram Smith, married a woman who was decades younger and fathered six children. Dan, the fifth, was born in 1932 when Abram was 70. Only one sibling besides Dan — Abe, 92 — is still alive. "

ssssssshhhhhh. . . Don't tell anyone...
last time around he voted for Trump!

;)

In all seriousness; Abram had to have been born in 1862 and
a toddler through out the American War of Rebellion, no more
than 4 when the war ended. Given the dire food shortage in the
South, he was lucky he didn't die at a young age.
