Mr. John Smith of Albion, an uncle of Mrs. Morris Emmerson
of this city, died Saturday and was buried yesterday.
He was one of the old pioneers of that county and during his
business career amassed considerable property. For many years
past he had been in a failing condition.
He leaves a widow and one son, Harry, who formerly lived in
Ashley but now resides in Albion.
