THE ERIE RECORD, 9 December 1927
A Good Woman and Lived in Neosho for many Years
Mrs. Henry Smith died at her home in this city Tuesday, December 6, 1927, at the age of 78 years and in her death the communtiy has lost a worthy woman in every sence of the word.

During her life time the deceased proved herself to be a woman of the highest type, a true and loving wife, a real mother, and a good and kind friend.

Sarah Elizabeth James was born in Henderson county, Illinois, July 13, 1849, and she was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Walter James. At the age of 4 years she moved with her parents to McDoras county, Illinois,
where she grew to womanhood.

She was married to Henry Smith on Dec. 3, 1868, and ten years later they moved to Kansas which had ever since been her home, residing in Allen county for several years and then residing in different parts of Neosho county until fifteen years ago when with her husband she moved to Erie. The late Henry Smith passed away ten
years ago.

The deceased was the mother of eleven children, six of them surviving her and being: Mrs. W. P. Hawes of this place, J. O. Smith of Odense, W. H. Smith of Chanute, George P. Smith of this place, Roy Smith of Parsons and Sam Smith of Peoria, Arizona.

The deceased was a member of the Methodist church and funeral services will be held in that church and conducted by Rev. E. E. Satterlee but the time of services will depend upon the arrival of her son, Sam, from Arizona.

Burial will be in the family lot in East Hill cemetery.
