George H. Smith, one of the oldest Odd Fellows in the state, died early Saturday morning (December 16, 1905) at the home of his son-in-law, A. J. McCain, 180 East Fourth street. He was in his 86th year and death was due to a complication of diseases incidental to old age. He was born in Hanover, Germany and came to this country when quite a young man. He learned the trade of carriage upholstering in Germany and followed that trade here.

Mr. Smith was the father of George C. Smith and step-father of Mrs. J. J. McCain, of this city, and was held in high esteem. He was a member of the Madison Lodge of Odd Follows, of Madison, Ind., and had been affiliated with the organization for 52 years. He was a member of the Lutheran church and as long as his health would permit attending divine services regularly.

An opportunity was given the friends of the deceased to view the remains last evening between the hours of 6 and 9 o’clock. The Odd Fellows of the city will turn out to the services in a body.
