John I. Smith, farmer and stock raiser, Section 24, Township 1, Range 15, P.O. Morrill, was born in Somerset County, Pa., in April 1844, and lived in his native State, until 1856, when his parents removed to Carroll County, Ill., where he resided until October 18, 1876, when he became a resident of Kansas, locating in Morrill Township, Brown County, where he has resided since. He is a member of the German Baptist Church, and is Clerk of Morrill Township. He was married at Mt. Carroll, Carroll Co., Ill., in July 1864, to Miss Adeline Meyers, a native of Somerset County, Pa. They have five children whose names are: --John J. Astor, Samuel J. Burnworth, Martin A. Byron, William H. Leroy, and Benjamin A. Cecil. Mr. Smith owns a fine upland farm of 160 acres, lying two miles north of Morrill; it is reached by fine roads, is enclosed by substantial fences, is in a high state of cultivation and is well supplied with water by means of wells and Larkin's branch of the Pony which flows through the southeast corner of the farm. There is a young and thrifty orchard on the property which covers two and half acres and contains 125 fruit trees of various varieties. The improvements are good and consist in part of a new, comfortable and cozy frame cottage containing seven rooms, surrounded by handsome shade trees, horse stable, sheds and lots, granary, corn cribs, etc. Mr. S. raises from 500 to 600 bushels of wheat, 100 to 150 bushels of rye, 300 bushels of oats, 3,000 to 4,00 bushels of corn, cuts twenty-five acres of hay, keeps fifteen to twenty stock cattle, forty to fifty Poland-China hogs, and eight head of fine horses. Mr. Smith is an honest, industrious and intelligent Pennsylvanian farmer, a prominent and useful citizen and a good neighbor.
