Broad-Axe (Eugene, OR)
James W. Smith, who resided three miles and a half southwest of Eugene, deceased this life on Wednesday, May 13, 1896.  The subject of this notice was born in Clay county, Kentucky, February 21, 1826, and was therefore 60 years of age last February.  He grew up to manhood there and was married to Miss Kittie White of Manchester, Ky., in 1865 or 1866 – the exact date of which we have not been informed.  Mr. Smith was a lieutenant in a company of Colonel John Lucas’ regiment, General Garrard’s brigade of Kentucky troops, and was in several hard-fought engagements, notably that of Perryville, Kentucky.  While in the service Mr. Smith contracted chronic diarrhea, of which he never entirely recovered.

Mr. Smith removed to Columbus, Indiana, in the year 1872, and remained there until the year 1883, when he removed to Oregon and settled on that place where he died.

Catarrhal fever was the immediate cause of his death.  It may be said of J. W. Smith that he was a good man, a patriotic citizen, a generous neighbor, a faithful husband, an indulgent parent and humble Christian.  He was more than the average man.  Five children were the fruit of Mr. and Mrs. Smith’s wedded life, three sons, R. A., Randall and William and two daughters, Lettie and Nellie.  Randall, the second son, was killed at Mitchell, Oregon, February 14, 1892, for which his murderer was committed to the penitentiary for life.  Richard A., the oldest son, is at Burns, Harney county, Oregon, and the other remaining children being at home and all grown.  Kittie, the widow of the departed, has the sympathy of her neighbors, we are sure, and the writer of these lines extends his condolence as of a very near relative, as he is.  Mr. Smith was an honored Mason of the lodge at this place and member of the G.A.R. post here.

During our short career as a newspaper man it has fallen to our lot to write notices of the death of a good many of our friends.  Well, it will not always be thus.  Bye and bye someone will write our obituary.  And what will he say?  Are we not engaged from hour to hour making material for our own obituary, which has only to be put together by the faithful biographer of our life when we step down and out?  We think so.

Died
Daily Guard, August 22

Yesterday evening at 9 o'clock, William Smith, another of the noble pioneers of Oregon, died at his home on Eleventh street in this city, aged 73 years, 5 months and 10 days. He had been in feeble health for several years.

He was born in Redding, England, March 11, 1826. Coming to the United States with his parents, the family settled for a year at Rochester, New York, thence proceeded to Cleveland, Ohio, and three years afterwards to La Porte, Indiana, where the subject of this sketch grew to manhood. He started across the plains to Oregon April 9, 1847, and on the 23rd of October of that year arrived in Portland. He next located in Yamhill county, and after paying a visit to California in June, 1849, took up the claim on which he resided for so many years, and upon which is now located the village of Fairmount, situated a half mile east of Eugene. He married Nancy A. Lucker, whom he leaves, and four sons and daughters of mature age.

Mr. Smith was a most estimable citizen and was respected by the people generally. The only public office he ever held here was director of school district No. 4, the affairs of which he conducted in a thorough business like manner. For years he was a delegate to the republican county and state conventions.

A good man has gone and the people mourn his loss.

The funeral will take place from his late residence on Eleventh street Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock to the Masonic cemetery.

W. F. Smith Dies; Man Faces Charge of Manslaughter

Upon the death of W. F. Smith shortly after noon Wednesday at the Pacific Christian hospital, the district attorney said he would file a manslaughter charge against C. W. Taliaferro of Eugene.  Taliaferro is held in the county jail charged with driving while intoxicated after an automobile crash Sunday night near Springfield bridge in which Smith was injured.

Smith sustained four fractures of the skull, and four pieces of glass penetrated the brain, an attending physician said.

Smith was riding in a car driven by Taliaferro, which crashed into one driven by Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Roberts of Cottage Grove on the Pacific highway near the bridge, about 8 o’clock, according to the accident report submitted to the sheriff.

Occupants of the Roberts car said Taliaferro was weaving back and forth on the highway, and that he struck them as they were turning to avoid a crash.  They said Taliaferro was on the wrong side of the road before the crash came.

Taliaferro was arrested and lodged in the county jail.  Monday charges of driving while intoxicated were placed against him by the district attorney.
