Wells Smith whose death was mentioned in the Clipper of Jan. 24th only lacked a few months of being seventy years old. He was born in New York state and at the age of fourteen moved to Nauvoo and in 1848 came to Utah, locating here the fall of the same year. He made several trips back after emigrants, aided in rescuing settlers on Salmon River at the time of the Indian war, helped to build the first adobe house north of Salt Lake City. He was the father of eleven children six of whom survived him. His wife Mirian Davis, whom he married in Iowa in 1850, was a daughter of Captain Davis after whom our county is named and also a pioneer settler in Farmington. The dedeceased was a full brother to Lot Smith and like his brother did much toward the early settlement of this country.
