Wife Asks $30,000 For Death Of Husband
A suit to obtain $30,000 damages was filed in district court here Tuesday by Mrs. Flora REED against the Montezuma Mining Company, as the result of an accident in the concentration plant near Cardin December 17, 1922, which is alleged to have caused the death of James S. REED, husband of the plaintiff. According to the petition, Mrs. REED charges that her husband was caught by an unguarded line shaft and pully in the Montezuma mill and thrown to the floor with such force as to inflict injuries which caused his death a week later.  Mrs. REED states in the petition that her husband was the sole support of herself and three minor children.

Submitter's Note:These are my great-great grandparents. I have the court papers with Flora settling out of court in the amount of $3,500.00. Two of the minor children, I can not find out anything on. Names were Chelora and Ruth. Chelora was born in 1914 and Ruth was born in 1911.

Submitter's Note - I took some liberties to make some corrections in the SMITH articles.
William M Smith was taken to Butler, MO for interment by my Aunt Emma SMITH-MIENEN and by my mother Mary Jane SMITH-JOHNSTON. This was over 50 years ago; and, she has no memory of the cemetery (there are over 40 in the Bates County).
My “Aunt Emma” passed away in 1961 and is said to buried at (I just found out) Oak Hill Cemetery in Butler, MO; but, there is no record of William M Smith or their obituaries. Emma SMITH-MIENEN may have four daughters; Mrs. Dale CAMPBELL, Mrs. M. J. FENNEY (spelling not clear), Clarence OVERMAN, and Mrs. Carl Wallace.
I would love to hear from anyone looking for a SMITH-PRICE-HUFFORD-JOHNSTON-WEAVER-HUCKABEE-BAGSBY connection.
