Lloyd Smith died at four o'clock Wednesday afternoon at the family home in Monmouth. He had been sick nearly a year with dropsy and kidney trouble and had rapidly grown worse until for the past few weeks it was realized that he could not hold out much longer and the end came peacefully.
The deceased man was born near Berwick on April 9, 1896. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Wood Smith and he spent his early life there. When he was about twenty years old he, with his mother, came to Roseville, his father having died.
This was his home until about five years ago when he moved to Monmouth, where he has been an employee of the Three M Works.
While he lived in Roseville he was united in marriage with Miss Belle Clayton, who with four children survive him. He also leaves his mother, Mrs. Kate Smith, and three sisters, Mrs. M. A. Parish, Roseville, Mrs. Stella Norville, Beardstown, and Mrs. Anna Yockey, Kansas City.
A short funeral service was held at the residence at 7 o'clock Thursday evening, conducted by Rev. J. F. Jamieson. The remains were brought to Roseville Friday morning where services were conducted at the Methodist church by Rev. R. T. Ballew.
The interment was made in Roseville cemetery. (Times Citizen, Roseville, IL, Wednesday, February 15, 1905, page 4
