     The following obituary appeared in a clipping in one volume of the series We Remember, (2002), originally published 16 December 1904:
DIES SUDDENLY IN CHICAGO
Edward Smith Stricken With Heart Disease While on His Way South For His Health -- Had Been Poorly For Some Time -- An Old and Respected Citizen
(Handwritten date - 12/14/04 - this is the date of death - the date of writing was 12/16/04)

The community was greatly shocked Wednesday morning when the news came flashing over the wires that Edward Smith had suddenly passed away in Chicago. It seemed incredible at first, as the well known citizen was walking our streets only a day or two before, but alas, the sad news was only two (sic) true. He died at 4 o'clock in the morning, from an attack of heart trouble.

Mr. Smith had been a sufferer for several years with kidney trouble, and had never been a well man since he under went a difficult surgical operation at a Chicago hospital about two years ago. Of late he had complained of a shortness of breath and before leaving Tuesday morning said that he felt quite a sharp pain in his left side.

Mr. Smith and his wife and daughter were on their way to Eureka Springs, Arkansas, where they intended to spend the winter in the hope of benefiting the formers' health. They left Alworth Tuesday morning at 9:30 o’clock They purchased tickets and their baggage was checked through to Eureka Springs. Arriving at Chicago they repaired to the home of Mrs. Smith's brother, Thomas Holliday, at 235 Warren Avenue, where they intended to stay all night and leave for the South Wednesday morning. Mr. Smith was not feeling well when he retired, and was taken worse during the night and passed peacefully away at 1 o'clock. Attorney Fred Smith was at once notified of the sudden death of his father and after telephoning Winnebago relatives left at once for Chicago.

Edward Smith was born in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, December 16, 1832, and had he lived until today would have been 72 years of age. When about 16 years of age he moved with his parents to Collingwood, Canada. They came to Illinois in the fall of 1861 and settled on what is now the Joseph Moore farm in the town of Seward. The subject of this sketch resided on the homestead with his parents for about 5 years when he purchased his late farm near the Edwardsville creamery, where he lived until about 5 years ago. Since that time he had been an honored resident of the village of Winnebago, having purchased the J. L. McLain residence property.

Mr. Smith was married in 1861 during his residence in Canada to Miss Elizabeth Holliday, who, with three sons and one daughter, survive. The eldest son, J. Z. Smith of Seward, was born in Canada. The other children are natives of Illinois. F. H. Smith is the well known Rockford attorney, while Edward and Maria are at home.

The deceased was a member of a family of ten children, of whom only four are living, as follows: John Smith of Cass county, Iowa, Robert Smith of Antioch, California, and Mrs. Martha White of Collingwood, Canada, and Mrs. James Thaxter of Winnebago.

Mr. Smith was a straightforward and upright citizen in every sense of the word. A good neighbor and a kind parent has gone to his just reward, and he will be greatly missed by a large circle of friends. He was a man who believed in doing things, and had by dint of hard work and good business judgment succeeded in accumulating a goodly amount of this world’s goods. Since coming to the village Mr. Smith had united with the Presbyterian church, and was cut down just as he was in a position to thoroughly enjoy the fruits of a well spent life.

The remains arrived from Chicago on the 1:30 passenger Thursday afternoon, and funeral services were held from the house this morning at 11 o'clock. Rev. M.S. Axtell officiating, interment was in the Winnebago cemetery.

NOTE - Remains arrived Thursday Dec 15th, and funeral was on the day of writing Dec 16th.9



     In the obituary of Edward Smith who died 4 February 1941, Edward's father, Edward Smith was listed as predeceased.2,19

Census Data

     Only the head of the household was named in the 1840 census, with the number of household members broken out by age and gender groupings. Edward appears to have been included in this statistical breakout of the household of James Smith, within the "Free White Persons - Males - 5 thru 9" grouping.22

Edward Smith and Elizabeth N Smith appeared on the 1880 U.S. Federal Census of Winnebago, Seward Twp., Winnebago County, Illinois, enumerated 5 June 1880, enumerated as a Farmer. Their children James, Edward, Maria E and Fredrick Henry were listed as living with them.7
