William Henry Smith

Killed by a falling shed, January 5, 1898.  Aged 21 years and four months.
He was received into Immanuel Baptist Church by baptism October 23, 1895. His life was a model; always in his place and responding cheerfully to every call of duty. served one year as librarian of Sunday school and treasurer of W. Y. P. U .
The church had just elected him president of the union and treasurer of the school. A noble boy, a devoted son, a model Christian. Loved and respected by young and old.  Though we ca not understand the mysteries of Gods providence, we humbly bow to his will.
