In Memory of H. M. Smith
Henry Milton Smith was born in Alabama July 22, 1862. Came to Texas with his parents in 1874 and settled in Madison County where he lived a few years with his parents then moved to Leon County near the place of his death. He was married to Miss Martha Nichols, December 22, 1882. Nine children came to bless their home. Three, one boy and two girls preceded him to the great beyond. Two boys and four girls are left behind to mourn with their mother and a host of neighbors and friends. Mr. Smith died at noon September 22, 1931. After an illness lasting more than 2 years, always bearing his pain and suffering with Christian fortitude. He believed in the truth and goodness of God that he knew would endure forever and that he would endure forever with it. He often told his family and friends that it would be better on the other side where there was no suffering and pain.
Mr. Smith was true for there were those who trusted him. He was pure for the sake of those who cared. He was strong for he had much to suffer. He was brave for he had nothing to fear. Living in the fear of God and at peace with all men. A faithful husband, a kind father, teaching his children the way of righteousness by his daily walk.
Surely a good man has gone from among us to be mourned for not by his family only, but by all who knew him and especially by those who knew him best, by those neighbors who have lived by him for twenty-five years and always found in him a good neighbor, a faithful friend and a loyal
citizen and a good Christian. It makes us remember that we read "blessed is the man that dies in the Lord."
