Mrs. Martha Smith.
For three years Mrs. Smith had been a helpless invalid, as a result of paralysis, and death came as a happy release Friday morning. Since last summer she has been cared for by her daughter, Mrs. R. M. Underwood, at whose home she died. The deceased was the mother of eleven children, only four surviving her. Four of her sister's children also owed their early training to her, making in all fifteen children raised by this estimable lady who, at her death, was almost 87 years old. The funeral services were held at the Underwood home on Sunday at 10 a.m., conducted by Rev. Kirkpatrick; interment in the Blackbird Cemetery, the burying ground of the family. Never a better hearted woman lived; one who was always ready, when in health, to assist the needy and relieve distress.
