Smith D. Cole was born in Gilboa, Schoharie county, N. Y., March 20, 1875, and died in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, January 23, 1912, aged 36 years, 10 months and 3 days. Aug. 25, 1897 he was united in marriage to Miss Ida M. Ehrke of Lime Springs, Iowa. This union was blessed with two children both of whom died three years ago, only two days apart. Mr. Cole had been in poor health for two years but the final summons came as a shock, as he was only confined to the house four days, his wife and his father, D. B. Cole of Elma were with him when the end came. The remains were taken to Elma for burial in the family lot. Services were at the home in Elma, Jan. 25th, and were conducted by Rev. Pease, pastor of the M E. Church at. Riceville.—Elma New Era.
Transcriber’s Note: His gravestone in Howard Cemetery shows he was born in 1876 and died in 1911. (Obviously the year of death is in error.)
