    • FUNERAL OF JOHN B. SMITH
      Published on July 23, 1904

      With a simplicity characteristic of the late Hon. John B. Smith, services were this afternoon conducted over his remains, which were afterwards laid to rest in Shawnee cemetery at Plymouth. The services were held at the late resisdence in Forty Fort, where a large number of friends, many from out of the valley, together with about fifty members of Shawnee Lodge 225, I.O.O.F., gathered to pay their last sad tribute of respect. Deceased was a charter member of the above organization, which was founded over half a century ago. The services were conducted by Rev. Knipp, pastor of the Plymouth M. E. Church, assisted by Rev. Mr. Ripley, of the Forty Fort M. E. Church. In the reverend gentlemen's earnest discourses they spoke many touching words concerning the life and motives of the deceased.
      There was a profusion of flowers, among them several designs, beautiful memorials of sorrowing friends and a large number of casket bouquets which materially helped to brighten the solemn occasion. The pall bearers were Harry Hughes, James Rowe, Arthur Ives, John H. Evans, William R. Etts, Sr., and John Massaker.
