Smith, Edward (1884 - 1911)
C. D. Fowler has received particulars from N. H. Smith of Baraboo, brother of Rev. A. E. Smith, of the recent death of the latter's only son, Edward, by drowning. The accident which resulted in his death occurred at his home near Talladega, Ala., where he had been the past two years superintending the college farm of that city. The farm has 815 acres and is devoted to dairying, hog raising, etc. One day he was gone longer from the house than usual, so in company with others, his wife went to search for him. They followed his tracks to a reservoir where he had gone to measure the water. They found his hat floating on the water, where he had slipped in and drowned.
Mr. Smith was a bright young man and had been successful in his line of work ever since completing his college course. He was married only last July to a young lady of Denver. The remains were taken to Denver for burial, Mrs. Smith's parents residing there.
The parents of the deceased, Rev. and Mrs. A. E. Smith, visited him soon after leaving here at the close of the conference year last September, remaining there for some time. After visiting at their son's home they went to Havana and are now in the city of Mexico City. He is studying the social conditions in different countries.
