After an illness of twelve years, Henry Smith, aged fifty years, died at his home corner of Center and Scioto Streets, Sunday morning about 9 o'clock. His death was due to rheumatism and complications. He had been confined to his bed two months before death relieved him of his sufferings.

He is survived by a widow and three children, the latter being Charles Smith of Point Pleasant, West Virginia; Hoyles Smith and Mrs. Ernest Palm of this city. He also leaves two sisters, Mrs. Rider and Mrs. Boyd of Prospect, and one brother who lives at Millersburg. A son was scalded to death when employed at the Erie roundhouse several years ago.
The funeral services will be held at Wesley M. E. church, Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. H. V. McCleary officiating. Interment will be made in the Marion cemetery.
Henry Smith was Jim's great-grandfather. He was the 10th and last child of John & Elizabeth (Myers) Smith, who immigrated from Weingarten, Germany, to Marion County, Ohio.
