GREENLEAF SMITH-The subject of this notice, son of Theophilus and Sarah
Smith, was born in Cornish, August 1799;always lived on the homestead; was
married October 21, 1824; and died after an illness of three years, February 27,
1867, aged 67 years, 6 months.
He was a man of great industry, energy and perseverance; of unblemished
character for morality, integrity and truthfulness' one of the kindest and most
affectionate men in his family and neighborhood; very social, hospitable and
fond of company; and best of all a good Christian, a worthy member of the
Church of Christ.
He had a great musical talent; was sent for from a distant community to drum
at a military parade, when but a lad of nine years,-the messenger inquiring for
"Mr. Smith the Drummer:" and for many years until his last sickness, with his
rich, bass voice he led the choir in the Sanctuary, he led to the satisfaction of all.
Leaving a widow and four sons, two sisters and many friends to mourn their
loss, not his, he was gone, we believe to join forever in the harmonies of heaven.
