Say Hello to Joyce 
Yes, I at least as well as anyone, realizes that Sullivan
had/has a LOT of Smith Sisters (and brothers and all).
With five unrelated Smith families settling in Sullivan the 
name is even more common than most other places.

Newspaper Notice - In Memory of Ella SMITH Welch - In memory of Mrs. Ella SMITH Welch, whose death occurred September 17, 1932, an organ has been donated to the Rutland Hill Church, and through the kindness of Grant FETHERS was delivered there last week.

Obituary: Edith Smith, daughter of Albert and Louisa MANSFIELD SMITH, was born at Elk Run, Sullivan Township, Tioga County, PA. July 12, 1861, and she died at her home in Elk Run June 16, 1900. At the age of four she went to live with her mother's aunt near Syracuse where she lived nine years, when she returned to her parents to be with her mother in her last days. After the death of her mother, which occurred in 1874, she again went to her aunts for a few months but finally returned to help an older sister in caring for the younger brothers and sisters. Dec. 29, 1875, she married Clarence SMITH, son of Northrop Smith of Sullivan. In 1880 under the preaching of Rev. E. E. Morris she gave her heart to God and united with the M. E. Church at Elk Run, of which she has been a faithful and consistent member until God said, "It is enough, come up higher." She leaves to mourn her loss a husband, seven children, a father, two brothers and four sisters, besides other friends. The family have lost their best earthly friend, the brothers and sisters a loving sister, the church one of its most faithful devoted members. Those that knew her best loved her most. The high place she held in the hearts of people was shown by the large number that gathered to pay a last tribute of respect and love to one of their number whom God in His providence had seen fit to call home. The funeral was held in the Elk Run M.E. Church June 19, 1900, Rev. W. H. Yard officiating.
