*NOTE* (I think this should say children of Jesse Hassell Smith?)
Mrs. SMITH was a woman of many virtues and in her long and useful life, a life
filled with deeds of love and mercy for those near and dear to her, and others,
she was an inspiration to those who knew her. She neglected no duty or responsibility
and was a home maker in the fullest sense of the word. She will be remembered for
the good she did.
Mrs. SMITH was born in Genosee County, New York, May 28, 1854, and she had lived 75
years in Jefferson County. Her age at the time of death was 79 years, five months,
and 12 days. Her marriage with Jesse Hassell SMITH took place in 1887, and he preceded
her in death in 1892. Mrs. SMITH was a member of the Richview Presbyterian Church until
