Obituary of Josiah C Smith

In the afternoon of that day, the 1st of March, occurred most painfully at his house, the death of Josiah Smith, after a short but severe illness. The deceased was a quiet and worthy citizen living immediately in his own family and a circle of friends, who will mourn his loss. Today (Wednesday,) we understand that the remains of the departed will be taken to West Union for Interment."
