THE WESTERN STAR, 29 September 1888
Obituary of JOHN T. SMITH
John T. Smith, son of Lloyd Smith, of Nescatunga, died at his father's residence at 3 o'clock Thursday morning last, of quick consumption. The deceased was a young man, 24 years of age, and was one of a family of
nine children. He had been ill only since the 29th of June, having contracted a cold that led to quick consumption and causing his untimely death. He came to this county from Larue county, Kentucky, about 9
months ago and had been engaged since his arrival here in traveling for the Union Sewing Machine Co., of New York. The remains of the young man were buried yesterday in the cemetery of Nescatunga. The grief stricken parents and relatives have the sympathy of the community.
