Irl A Smith

"I was born in Johnson County, Missouri near Holden, November 12, 1881. I came
to Kansas with my parents in March 1883. We lived on a farm until fall of 1903
when I, with my folks, moved to Iola, Kansas. For the next 10 years I worked in
factories in Iola, went to Business College a while, worked in Colorado a year
or two. In 1914 my sister Iva and I moved to a farm near Iola where I farmed
for three years. Our father came out from town each day and helped, having an
interest in farming with me. Had a sale February 6, 1917.

On February 8, 1917, Ella Johnson and I were married in her home near Iola, then
moved to a farm, renting until 1940 when we bought a farm which we sold in 1952.
Purchased two properties in Iola to rent and a 3A home in Carlyle where we live
and raise chickens to occupy my time. Ann (difficult to read- is this a nickname
for Pauline?) also caretakes for the Presbyterian Church here in Carlyle where
we are members. I am a ruling elder, have been Sunday school superintendent and
teacher at various churches we have attended in different places we have lived,
which have mostly been Evangelical United Brethren. Have also been on the school
board at different times."
