at the common schools, and lived with his father until about twenty-four years of age. His father, Morgan Smith,

of age. Twenty-four years ago the latter bought the farm of 200 acres of Chester Stoddard (now deceased). In 1881
he bought the farm of 168 acres of his father, near his first purchase, but not joining, making 368 acres. Mr.
Smith has always been a Republican in politics, and he is now a member of the Farmers' Alliance. While not a member
of any religious denomination, both he and his family attend the Baptist Church at Italy Hill. October 17, 1867,
he married Alice A., daughter of Chester Stoddard, of this town. Their children are Chester M., Grace S., Edna,
and Edwin and Eben (twins), the latter deceased.
