- Obituary:  Smith - At the residence of his son-in-law John B. Enos, in Summit, Thursday morning, Jan. 26, 1905 at 6 o'clock, Frank Smith - aged 71 years, 4 months and 2 days.  Mr. Smith had been suffering for several weeks with a stroke of paralysis, and while it was known that his condition was serious, none apprehended that the end would come so soon; when it did it produced a wave of sorrow and grief among his family and large circle of friends.  For a number of years Mr. Smith resided in McComb, occupying a trusted position in the I.C. shops there, and made friends with all whom he came in contact.  Afterwards he came to Summit, and took up his abode with his daughter, Mrs. Enos.  Here as elsewhere, his genial, kindly nature, open-hearted and frank disposition won him a coterie of warm friends who deeply deplore his absence from among them.  He was a devoted father, generous to a fault, up-right, honest and true, and in his death the town loses a valuable citizen, while his sorrowing children are bereft of an indulgent and tender father.  To them the tenderest sympathy of the whole community is extended in their bereavement.  The funeral will take place from Mr. Enos' residence tomorrow (Friday) evening at 3 o/clock, conducted by Rev. H. H. Messenger, Rector of the Episcopal Church, of which church the deceased was a consistent and faithful member.
