A Cedar Valley Pioneer At Rest
Last Saturday, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. E. A. Morgan, Thomas Kimball Smith, a pioneer of Cedar Valley, died of general paralysis. He had been failing rapidly all winter and after a stroke a week before his death, sank rapidly into unconsciousness, from which he did not revive.
Mr. Smith was born in Jackson County, Missouri, in 1833, and came to Utah in 1859, settling in Cedar Valley. He went through all the trials incident to pioneer life in that section of the state. He was survived by five children, twenty-six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
Funeral services were held over the remains at Cedar Fort last Monday, Bishop James E. Garn presiding.
Adapted from an obituary published in the American Fork Citizen on Saturday, February 28, 1914.
