Wednesday, 18 September 1940

Beattyville, Ky. -- The Rev. John C. Smallwood, 91, a retired Christian minister who claimed the distinction of being the only surviving veteran of both the War Between the States and the Spanish-America war, died of a heart attack at 7 o'clock Tuesday night at the home of his son, Robert S. Smallwood, near here.

Death came unexpectedly, members of his family said as the Rev. Mr. Smallwood, who celebrated his 91st birthday anniversary last April 19, recently had been in good health.

The house in which he died is located only three miles from the one in which he was born, which at that time was in a part of Owsley county which since has been incorporated in Lee county.  He had resided with his son since the death in 1930 of his wife, Mrs. Ann Smallwood.

For more than 30 years the Rev.-Mr. Smallwood served as a circuit riding minister, having been ordained 40 years ago.  He made long trips regularly until his health forced him to retire as an active minister about 10 years ago.

After he stopped circuit-riding, residents of his community gathered at his home each week for Sunday school services.  On the occasion of his 91st birthday, the Rev. Mr. Smallwood estimated that he had performed 500 marriages and baptized more than 1,000 persons.

He served in both the War Between the States and the Spanish-American war as a private.  He was a Mason.

Besides his son, he is survived by another son, J. H. Smallwood, Covington, and two daughters, Mrs. Lou Patton, East Bernstadt, and Mrs. Mattie Amburgy, Jeffersonville, Montgomery county, and several grandchildren.

Funeral services will be held at 2 o'clock Thursday afternoon at the Beattyville Christian church with five Christian ministers, officiating.  Burial will be in the Epworth cemetery in Owsley county with Masonic rites at the grave.
