community was painfully shocked on Thursday last when the news of
Mr. Thos. Smith's sudden death was made known. Few knew even of his
illness because he had only been ill a few days.
He was taken with a severe
cold but pneumonia developed and the end came very unexpected.
Mr. Smith has lived in this
community for a long time and was well and favorably known. He was a
member of the Methodist church, at one time superintendent of the
Sunday School and was also teacher of the Bible class. He had a
quiet, kind, unassuming manner.
The funeral was held from
his late residence on Saturday afternoon, service being conducted at
the house and the remams were laid to rest in Greenwood cemetery.
The large number of friends and neighbors attending showed the high
esteem in which deceased was held.
