Capt. Thos.
SMITH,
Crossed the plains
1849. Located alone in this
valley Nov. 11, 1851 amid
hostile Indians who learned
to fear (as we learned to
value) his prompt, daunt
less, but careful leading of
Volunteer Companies
that held at bay the
Savage foe.
May he be remembered.
by all as a benefactor.
By old friends
