FORKED DEER--In the passing of Mr. George Ernest SMITH on January 29, 1932, this community lost one of its best and most highly esteemed citizens. His death occurred in the Baird-Brewer hospital in Dyersburg, after an illness of only five days, and came as a severe shock to his family. He had been an active member of the Woodville Presbyterian church for 33 years. He was 63 years old and had lived near here for 45 years. Mr. SMITH was a most devoted and true husband, an indulgent and affectionate father, a loyal friend, and a kind and generous neighbor.
