Obituary transcript, newpaper not identified, from Find-a-Grave:

Ulysses Simpson Smith, 84, retired farmer and long time Tulare resident, died yesterday, January 21, 1951, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Ellen Watkins, 515 South P Street, Tulare.

Born October 2, 1866 in Londale, McLean County, Illinois to Dr. W. T. F. and Elizabeth Ann (Anderson) Smith. Smith came west when he was 18, after completing school in Chicago. He began ranching in the Tulare area and homesteaded land between Fomosa and what is now McFarland.

Smith raised grain and horses and used to race his horses on a track belonging to his uncle, Knute Anderson.

His father was Dr. William T. F. Smith, who came to Tulare as a physician for the Southern Pacific railroad and founded Smith's college in Tulare. It later became a part of the University of Southern California.

Smith was formerly a member of the Methodist Church, which was started here by his father, and the Modern Woodmen lodge.

Surviving are five sons and five daughters. They are Harvey Smith, Lathrop; Clarence Smith, Visalia; Forest Smith, Huntington Park; Harold Smith, Manteca; Russell Smith, Bakersfield; Mrs. Eva Thomas, Visalia; Mrs. Ellen Watkins and Mrs. Hazel Stevens, Tulare; Mrs. Rosalind Osborne, Exeter, and Mrs. Edna Wiggin, Manteca. There are also 29 grandchildren. Grandchildren living in Tulare include, Gene Smith, Bob Smith, George Smith, Jim Smith, Raymond Smith, Harold Smith, Thomas Smith, Edith Ann Osborne, Ralph Watkins and Mrs. Charles Burns.

Funeral services will be held Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Goble funeral chapel with Rev. J. Lester Hook of the First Church of God officiating. Mrs. Ruby Glad will be at the organ with Robert Dye, soloist.

Obituary, newpaper not identified, copied from Find-a-Grave:

Mrs. Vena Ellen (Smith) Watkins, 79, died December 20, 1973 while residing in Fowler Nursing Home in Tulare. Ellen, as she was known by family and friends, was born November 12, 1894 in Famoso, Kern County, California to Ulysses S. and Ida May (Haney) Smith. The family lived for a short time in Napa County, California before moving to Tulare, California.

Ellen graduated from Tulare City High School in May, 1916 and married Chauncey C. Watkins in Tulare on December 24, 1916. She worked with her husband in the family owned laundries they owned in Tulare and Delano. After they retired from the laundry business they settled in a home they built in the outskirts of Tulare. After Chauncey died, Ellen lived in their home until her health required that she be moved to a nursing home.

Ellen is survived by her children; Dorothy Harriman, Evelyn Sachtjen and Ralph Watkins.

William J. SMITH       (ID #I14865)

(male)
Father: John B. SMITH (b. 19 MAY 1792, d. 9 SEP 1849)
Mother: Elizabeth CHAPMAN (b. 3 DEC 1797, d. 30 SEP 1853)

If the William Smith age 31 b. Ohio on the Civil War draft register of 1863 in Solano Co., CA is him, that would make his birthdate about 1832. Last known in Solano Co., CA about 1858. William's guardian Josiah I. Earhart, former probate judge of Davis Co., IA, was released 01 mar 1854, implying that William had recently reached the age of 21. His brother Reuben's stepson William B. Synon recalled meeting Reuben's brother "Joseph", so perhaps that was William J. Smith's middle name. Where he was born is still uncertain, as the family must have moved from Ohio to Rush Co., Indiana sometime between about 1830 and 1835.

The William J. Smith who appears in some of the early records of Solano Co. obtained a homestead patent in the NW 1/4 of section 19, T7N, R2E of the Mt. Diablo Meridian. He had occupied the land since September, 1857, apparently before the land was offered for sale at the San Francisco Land Office, and applied for the homstead in 1863. As a final step in obtaining the patent, the Western Pacific Railroad, which had been granted most of the odd-numbered sections in that area as payment for constructing the railroad, waived its claim to his land on July 14, 1868. The application and affidavits show that William had a wife and three children as of that date (see below, at least this information matches the family of a William Jasper Smith on the 1880 census), and had built a house and two barns, fenced the property, and made about $1,000 worth of improvements. Unfortunately, there seems to be no information in the homestead application that could prove his relationship to Reuben P. Smith. The only Smith that could be same man in the 1860 census seems not to be ours.

Another possibility is the William Jasper Smith who appears on the voter registration records. As of 23 jun 1879, he was at Salt Point, Sonoma County, CA, age 44, born in Ohio. He is on the 1880 census at Salt Point with wife Delila, age 33, born in Missouri, and children George (born about 1863, possibly the George Morgan Smith on the 1930 census of San Benito, San Benito Co., CA, widower), Belle (born about 1866), James (born about 1868), and Lilly (born about 1877), all born in California. The same William J. Smith on the 1900 census of Washington Township, Alameda Co., CA, born in November 1833, age 66, with wife Delila. They had been married for 39 years (thus married about 1861) and Delila was the mother of 5 children, 4 still living. In 1920, William and Delila are in San Francisco, living with their daughter Lilian and her husband Theodore Ruge. Delilah died 24 mar 1927, age 80, and William J. died 16 apr 1927, age 93, both in San Benito Co. Whether this might be the brother of Reuben P. Smith is a complicated question. There were at least two other men named William Jasper Smith, both about the same time (one born in Virginia, the other in Missouri), who settled in California, the second (wife Elizabeth) in Sonoma Co.

last known location: went to live with Reuben P. Smith at a rancho in Suisun Valley, CA, from which Reuben P. departed to relocate his wife on July 19, 1858.
