A PIONEER GONE
Our city was greatly shocked Saturday afternoon by the sudden death of one of its earliest settlers, Mr. Warren Smith. He was on his way home and suddenly dropped dead near the city hall. The body was taken to Sterne's undertaking room until after the arrival of the coroner, when it was conveyed to the home of his wife, Mrs. Lucy L. Smith, on Washington Avenue. He was buried on Monday afternoon from the home, the funeral being conducted by Gen. U. S. Grant Post, G. A. R.
Mr. Smith was born in New York state, July 7, 1837, being nearly 70 years old at date of death. He enlisted in the 112th regiment, Company B, from New York and served three years and nineteen days. He was engaged in thirty-one battles, and many minor engagements. When his regiment left New York there were 1,200 men, and 117 in his company. Only 27 men returned and only seven of those not wounded. He came here from California in 1880 and took up a homestead, later engaging in the copper business. He leaves a wife, brother and two grandchildren. Mr. Smith owned some very valuable property, among which is Evergreen Park.
