THURSDAY, MARCH 1, 1928

When about sixteen years of age he came to this part of the country, this in the year 1872. Thus he has spent about fift-five years as a citizen of this country. In 1887 he met and married Miss Kate Parker of Marshall, Missouri, to which union six children were born, four of whom are living, vix, Mrs. R. C. Warm and Mrs. F. L. Witham, of California, and Mrs. J. A. McGuire, of Known, Kansas, and O. J. Smith of Jet Oklahoma, the latter two being present at the funeral. The wife, three daughters and son are left to mourn their loss with the many friends and acquaintances, of husband, father and friend.
Mr. Smith professed faith in his Christ and became a member of the Baptist church in Shattuck six or seven years prior, to his death and has retained continuous membership since that time. He was a good husband, loving father and as good citizen, and he has gone to his eternal rest.
