  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 Obituary for George B Smith, in Morrow County Sentinel (Mount Gilead, Ohio)
    24 Jul 1890.

    Mr. George B. Smith was born in Guernsey county, Ohio, November 19, 1813, and died at Edison, Ohio, July 8, 1890, aged 76 years 7 months and 23 days.

    He was married on March 3, 1836, and moved to Morrow county in 1863, where he has been known as an honest, industrious and upright man, a useful member of society and a supporter of what he believed to be right. His final sickness was painful and exhausting; his strong mind and willpower which was so characteristic of him in life and health did not forsake him in sickness or in death; neither did he lose his concern for those about him.

    Fifty-four years husband and wife traveled together. The time came for their paths to diverge, and he peacefully passed out of sight trusting in Christ.

    The funeral services were conducted by the M.E. pastor of the village, and Rev. A. E. Thomas. The interment took place in the Bethel Cemetery in the presence of family and neighbors.
