      Death of Mrs. A. D. Smith
      Mary Wyman was born at Pterboro, N. H., May 11, 1829. She moved to the state
      of Vermont when two year old. She was married to Mr. A. D. Smith of Newbery,
      Vermont, July 2, 1849. They moved to Wisconsin in 1853, and lived there
      eighteen years, after which they moved to Nebraska, where for twenty-seven
      years she has made her home. Their marriage was blessed with a family of seven
      children, two of whom have gone on before. The only daughter and one son are
      here, while two sons are in Oregon and one in Montana.
      She was converted and united with the M. E. church when a girl only fourteen
      years old, and continued
      a faithful member to the day of her death. She died July 18th, aged sixy-nine
      years. The funeral was held at the home two miles west of Seward at 2 p.m.
      July 19th, where a large company of neighbors, relatives and friends met to
      follow the remains to the grave in the cemetary west of town. Her pastor, Rev.
      J. F. Kemper, preached from Rev. XIV, 13.
      The family have the sincere sympathy of the community.
