There is a write up in the December 16, 1926 Remsen Advantage Newspaper regarding Orrin Smith, brother to my Great-Grandmother, who died in Sioux City, Iowa. I am looking for the exact date of death and where he was buried. The news article is as follows:
The Remsen Advantage newspaper - Brother Remsen Woman Dies - Orrin Smith Was Resident of Iowa for Past Thirty Years - The death of Orrin M. Smith occurred in a Sioux City hospital last Tuesday afternoon. Mr. Smith, who was a foreman for the Great Northern railroad at Sioux City, had lived there for 30 years and was 61 years old.
Besides his widow, Mary, Mr. Smith is survived by a son, Edward, and a daughter, Geneva, both of Sioux City. Two sisters and two brothers also survive. They are: Mrs. Ed Kelly, of Remsen, Miss Elizabeth Smith, and William and Joseph Smith of Galena, Ill.
Remsen relatives who attended the funeral are: Ed Kelly, Mike Goebel, Mr. and Mrs. S.C. Means and Mr. and Mrs. O.M. Kelly.
