WELLINGTON D. SMITH - In the death, January 7, 1920, of Wellington D. Smith, Johnson City, New York, lost one of its most esteemed and valued citizens. He was the type of man who is useful to the community in which he lives, public spirited and an earnest worker in all those movements which tend to enhance the general welfare. A lover of his country, town and State, Mr. Smith was never too busy to listen to any measures of reform, and in his many years of instructing the youth in the schools Ľof the State he was also successful in instilling into their minds many traits of usefulness which they have found of untold value to them in their subsequent years. At one time Mr. Smith was superintendent of the Water Works at Johnson City and in this office, as in all the positions which he held, he gave the best that was in him.

Wellington D. Smith was born in the town of Eastman, Broome county, New York, December 20, 1852, son of James R. and Mary A. (Parker) Smith. He received the benefits of a broad education. After completing his college course, he was engaged in teaching for many years. Mr. Smith was identified with the Farmers' National Bank of Union, New York, and he was a member of the Democratic party. Fraternally he was a Mason, and during his lifetime was a regular attendant of the Methodist church.

Mr. Allen married, January 27, 1872, at Oakdale, Ellen Andrews, born May 1, 1852, daughter of Miles Andrews, and they were the parents of one son, Miles M., who married Mary Youngs. The former is now a doctor of dentistry, engaged in practice in Johnson City.
