David Ogilvie Smith

David Ogilvie Smith
     David Ogilvie Smith was born on 5 December 1874 in Liverpool, Lancashire, England.1,2 He was the son of Donald William Stewart and Eliza Smith.1 In the census of 3 April 1881 in 15/2 Grafton Street, Toxteth Park, Lancashire, England, he was listed as the son of Donald William Stewart David was a scholar and seems to have taken on the surname of Stewart.3 He married Mary Ellen McGee on 4 December 1893 in All Saint's Church, Liverpool, Lancashire, England, Mary was of the Roman Catholic faith.4,5 David had gone to sea at a very young age. On one of these trips he discovered West Africa. He became a Master Mariner, leaving his wife and three or four children back in Arbroath. He did to get to see much of them.4 David served in the Boar War.4 David was a Shaft Master in the Gold and Diamond Mines in West Africa. He had his own servant called a "boy" then. This boy would run errands for him. He would go to the General Store and pick up cigarettes (Navy Cut) and beer or other spirits. Also clothing and other necessities he needed. In order to do this, the boy had to learn to sign for David, plus sign his own name under it. It is assumed this boy got quiet proficient at signing David's name..........and decided to buy a few things for himself.

When David went to pay the bill at the end of the month, he was shocked at how high it was! The store keeper said that the "boy" had been in that past month four times more than normal and even purchased a suit and hat and shoes and socks...all white....and all expensive!

David set out to find his "boy". But he had disappeared into the Bush where his tribe came from. Finally, David tracked him down and cornered him in a shack. When David approached him to ask him why he did this saying that he had trusted him, the "boy" leapt from the corner at David like a wild cornered animal. He grabbed David on the nose with his teeth and hung on for dear life. David thought for sure that the boy was going to bite his nose off. He bent towards the ground all the time struggling with the boy with their teeth around his nose. He finally felt chains on the ground and took hold of them. With all the force he could muster through this unbelievable pain, he beat the boy about the head and body with the chain, till he let go. He let go, because he was dead!

David was taken into custody and taken to Johannesburg for trial. He was tried and acquitted. It was agreed he was assaulted and defending himself. The verdict being self defence. David had those scars on his nose till the day he died.

David apparently loved the sea. He loved sailing to Africa, the Indies and America and Canada. He use to say, that the land smelled odd.4 David died on 18 August 1935 aged 60 David was the oldest seaman on the Cunard lines at the time and was killed instantly at sea when the ship he was on the Laurentic and The Napier Star were in collision. His residence at the time was listed a Beaverbrook Road, Liverpool.4,6 David was given one of the largest funerals of its day in Liverpool. He was given the funeral of a Quarter Master, with many Cunard dignitaries present.4
