Edmond Elliot Smith was born in the Spring, on the first day of May, 1840, at Westfield, Delaware County, Ohio, to Ebenezer and Eunice Perry Smith. Edmond was the seventh of eight children, having three older brothers, three older sisters, and one younger sister.
While Edmond was still a youngster, the Smith family moved to Michigan. At age 20, in the year 1860, Edmond is listed as a farmer with $70.
In 1861, at age 21, he married Ellen Stubberfield. The following year, he joined the Civil War effort, with his brothers, who all survived the war. They fought on the side of the Union, with the 85th Ohio Infantry.
Three of Edmond and Ellen's children were born during the time period of the Civil War - Isadora (Wright) (1862-1941), Jesse Edmond (1863-1924), Arminta Josephine (Stinnette)(1864-1945).
Before the age of 30, Edmond had located out west. Baby Gertrude (Petrie)(1873-1902) was born in Iowa. The family soon moved on to Nebraska, ultimately to the Deer Creek canyon country of Lincoln County, Nebraska. They homesteaded four or five miles Northwest of Moorefield.
As Edmond got up in age, he sold his homestead, with an agreement between him and the new owner, that Edmond would be allowed burial on his homestead.
He died in early Spring, 5 April, 1908, at age 67, and is indeed buried on his homestead near Moorefield, Nebraska. A white memorial stone with his name inspcription marks the grave that is roped off with a heavy-gauge chain fence.
