    • H. O. Smith, Dead. On last Friday night at 7 o’clock, Mayor H. O. Smith of Wilmar breathed his last. Mr. Smith had been in declining health for several months past, but was not confined to his bed until two weeks before his death, when on Friday, October 1st, [1909] he went to Monticello where he was taken worse and brought back to Wilmar in Mr. C. C. Gates’ automobile, taking his bed then never to get up from it again. Mr. Smith was a native of Georgia, coming to this State nearly 30 years ago, finally settling in the Barkada neighborhood and engaged in the sawmill and cotton gin business until some 12 years ago when he moved to Wilmar where he has since made his home. Since the incorporation of the town of Wilmar Mr. Smith had been at times a prominent figure in the affairs of the town. He was her first town Marshal. In the town election of 1908 he was elected Mayor, and again in April 1909 was re-elected, which office he held with credit to himself and satisfaction to the people until his death. Mr. Smith was a Mason and was buried by his brethren with the honors of that fraternity Sunday morning in the Wilmar Cemetery, by the side of his wife who preceded him to the grave just four weeks. The services were conducted at his late home by Rev. J. W. McCain. Quite a number of Masons were present from Monticello, Warren, and Lacy who took part in the funeral services. Mr. Smith leaves a family of one daughter, Mrs. Ashcraft of Warren, and six sons, all of whom were present with him at the last, and who have the sympathy of the many friends of their father.
