      Unknown Miller County Newspaper, December 1919

      John Wesley Smith, formerly of this place, died at his home in Crocker Monday, Dec. 22nd after a lingering illness of several weeks. He leaves a wife and several children to mourn his departure.

      The body was brought here on the following day. Funeral services were held in the Christian (Newlight) Church of which he was a member, conducted by Rev. C.M. Sooter. Interment was made in the town cemetery.

      April 1910 U.S. Census, age = 62
      1900 U.S. Census, birth date=Jan 1849
      June 1880 U.S. Census, age=32
      July 1860 U.S. Census, age=13
      Nov 1850 U.S. Census, age=3
      from this, I've concluded he was born January 1847

      On July 13, 1863, he enlisted as a private in Co. H, the 11th Regiment Calvary Volunteers. His age is given as 18 which would make his birth year 1845. If he were born in 1847, he would have been 16 years old when he enlisted.
