*Obituary
Bentonville Sun
Saturday, July 20, 1895

The object of this sketch, Brother William N. Smith, was born Oct. 14th, 1832 in Hancock Bridge, Salem county, New Jersey; died July 12th, 1895. He was a member of the M.E. church for more than 40 years and of the M.E. church, South, 1 year. He joined this church soon after he came to this state or very early thereafter. He was a true, loyal Methodist of the primitive type and will be greatly missed by the church and the community in which he lived; he told me that he was crucified with Christ and that the world had no attraction for him; this was sometime before he died. He was married to Elizabeth Joquette April 30th, 1853; the Lord blessed this union with eleven children, eight of whom with their mother live to mourn and suffer the loss of a devoted companion and an affectionate father. May the Lord strengthen the widow and bless and keep all the children and may they all emulate the many virtues of their now sainted father and finally, in the home of the good, meet to part no more, is the earnest prayer of his pastor. W.P. Hamilton.
