EDGAR LEWIS SMITH.

Edgar Lewis Smith, a prominent real-estate dealer of Sioux Falls,
who has been closely connected with important business interests in the
city for over a quarter of a century, was born in Cabot Plains,
Washington county, Vermont, April 10, 1850, He is a son of Daniel and
Betsey (Hassom) Smith, the former born in Marshfield, Vermont, in 1816,
and the latter in 1811. His paternal grandfather, Joshua Smith, was
born in 1773, and it is probable that he was a native of Connecticut,
as was his wife, who was in her maidenhood Miss Keturia Loveland. The
grandfather passed away in 1857. The parents of our subject are also
deceased, the father dying in 1893 in Marshfield, Vermont, and the
mother in 1881. They had eight children, of whom two died in infancy,
six grew to maturity and four survive.

Edgar Lewis Smith acquired his early education in the public
schools of Cabot Plains and Marshfield, Vermont, and later attended
Goddard Seminary at Barre, that state, from which institution he was
graduated in 1872. He was afterward for some time engaged in teaching,
following which he bought a small sawmill in Marshfield, operating this
until 1884. In that year he removed to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and
in 1885 established himself in the coal and wood business. Soon
afterward he also began dealing in real estate, and this branch of his
activities grew so rapidly that in 1898 he discontinued the coal and
wood business. He owns a great deal of valuable property in Sioux
Falls, including a business block in the heart of the city, and he is
known as an expert judge of property values.

On the 17th of May, 1879, in Marshfield, Vermont, Mr. Smith
married Miss Viana E. Wooster, who died in Sioux Falls in June, 1904,
leaving a daughter, Alice C., who is now deceased. On the 15th of July,
1908, Mr. Smith was again married, his second wife being Miss Nellie B.
Jones.

Mr. Smith was a member of the Vermont State Militia in his early
years; is connected fraternally with the Ancient Order of United
Workmen and the Woodmen of the World; and is independent in his
political views. His interests have been thoroughly identified with
those of Sioux Falls for over twenty-five years and his influence has
been a tangible force for good in the community.
Parents: Daniel Smith and Betsy Hassam.

He was married to Vianna Wooster on 17 May 1879 in Marshfield, Vermont. Children were: Alice Smith.


bullet Edith G. Smith was born on 8 Mar 1885 in Marshfield. She died on 15 Jan 1979 in Barre, Vermont. Parents: William Henry Harrison Smith and Martha A. Davidson.

bullet Edwin Angus Smith Photo was born on 16 Apr 1902 in Cabot, Vermont. He died on 18 Feb 1989 in Cabot, Vermont. Edwin was a farmer on his father's farm on Whittier Hill in Cabot. He had an interest in the history of Cabot and of his family. As Edwin aged he began to lose his memory. . Once, when he dropped off his wife at an appointment in Hardwick, he disappeared for two days. He turned up at a farm in Maine, many miles from his car. It was reported that the reason he had stopped at the farm was to help get the cows into the barn. While inspecting a logging job one winter day, inadequately dressed, he froze to death. Whether the minister of the Cabot church was informed of the cause of death, we do not know, but during the funeral service for some reason he thought it appropriate to read from Robert Frost's poem "Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening."

He was married to Clara CARPENTER on 10 Oct 1929 in Cabot, Vermont. Children were: Olive Lillian SMITH, Robert Winfield SMITH, David John SMITH.

bullet Ira SMITH Photo was born on 22 Jan 1800 in Woodstock, Connecticut. He died in 1880 in Marshfield, Vermont. He was buried in Marshfield Village Cemetery. Ira Smith came to Marshfield, Vermont from Woodstock, Connecticut with his parents in 1811. Although only 11 years old, Ira drove a double yoke of oxen the entire distance. They settled on a farm on the river road about a mile below the village (owned in 1993 by Mervin and Clara Wells). Ira warked on the farm summers, and attended school during the winters until he was 18 years old. The schoolhouse was located about two miles south of the farm, very near the homes of Joshua and Stephen Pitkin on the river road. When the first schoolhouse was erected in what later became the village, Ira became the first teacher there. He was paid in grain at a rate of $12.00 per month, and boarded himself. In 1821 he purchased 300 acres of unimproved land around what would later become the Marshfield depot. He cleared and cultivated 15 acres, spending part of his time there, and the balance working out until 1829 when he married Hannah Jacobs. They lived there a short time but then purchased and removed to the home of his parents, where they lived for 11 years. For about 4 years after 1840, when they sold the home farm, Ira and Hannah rented various places, but in 1844 they purchased the farm on which the remainder of his life was spent (owned in 1993 by Charles "Chet" Cole). He was a farmer and a stone mason.
In 1881, the Reverend George E. Forbes, Pastor of the Universalist Church in Marshfield, wrote of Ira Smith: "Mr. Smith held many of the town offices, being regarded by the citizens as a man of worth and integrity. He represented the town in the legislature during 1844-5. In politics, he was a Democrat, and never failed by his vote to express his faith in the doctrines of his party. His last public act was to rise from the sick bed to which he had been confined for several days, and go to the polls to deposit his ballot for the several state officers. He believed in the vital principles of religion, but in accordance with the general character of the man, his faith found expression in deeds rather than in word. In religious sympathy, he was a Universalist, and gave his influence and means to promote the interests of that society in town. His morals were always above reproach. He was temperate in deed and in word; drank no intoxicating liquers, no tea or coffee, and never used tobacco in any form; was frugal and industrious, and consequently was able to aquire a good property, while generously responding to many calls for the promotion of educational and benevolent enterprises.
"He possessed an indomitable will and wonderful endurance from the time he hired out as a laborer, at 9 years of age, until he abandoned active toil, a short time before his death. He met all duties with a manly spirit, and evinced his willingness to obey the primal law of life -- labor. He had a remarkably strong constitution, and when his "golden wedding" was celebrated in 1879, he seemed nearly as hale and hearty as a man of 60 years, though even then there were premonitory symptoms of the disease which caused his death. For nearly 2 years he suffered from a cancer on the lower lip, and during the latter half of this time, especially, did he endure extreme pain and inconvenience in taking food. But under all these trials he exhibited great fortitude, and died resigned to his Maker's will. His funeral was attended by a large concourse of citizens besides numerous relatives, thus testifying to the esteem in which he was held by the entire community. The funeral services were brief, no formal eulogy was pronounced; his life had preached its sermon, and with a few words of comfort to the bereaved ones, the last sad rights were ended, and the body of this worthy man was borne to its final resting place. His age was 81 years. "Though dead, he yet speaketh," in his good, solid, practical life." Parents: Joshua Smith and Keturah Loveland .
