  • Notes 
    • Biographical sketch written by his daughter, Mrs. David E. Ailman of Long Beach, Cal.:
      Mr. Ira Eugene Smith was born at Granville, Huron Co., Ohio, June 9, 1829. From his birth until six years old he had chills and fever and was a frail and delicate child up to his 12th year. His mother taught him to read and write, and from a rather dull child, with improved health and strength, he evinced a desire and aptitude to learn and acquire knowledge, which never forsook him for a moment in his entire life. As a child he was kind and tender-hearted toward all. All dumb beasts, even to hens and chickens, were his pets, and he had not the heart to kill one of them. He had the sweet and loving disposition of a girl and was never happier than when doing good to others. He learned the tade of carpenter, at which he worked during the summer and attended school during the winter season. He studied law at Ann Arbor, Mich., and theology at the Methodist Church at Albian College, Mich. While supplying a pulpit in Homer, Mich., he met and married Miss Nancy Cooper. Soon after he was sent to Quincy, in the same state, where he remained two years. He was a member of the Michigan Conference some five years. At the beginning of the Civil War he removed to St. Louis, Mo. He, in his younger days, had become a master mechanic and machinist, to which he had at times recourse in times of stress. He carried on building of houses in St. Louis and Chicago until the beginning of the Civil War, when he enlisted from Camp Butler, Ill., and served as a common soldier during the remainder of that terrible struggle, most of the time as a spy. At the conclusion of the war he went first to St. Louis, and then to Kansas City, Mo., and Kansas, contracting and building houses in growing towns along the railroads, as they pushed their way across the Continent. Later he went to New Mexico, and Arizona, and California. He spent three years in Old Mexico, and one year in the City of Mexico. He made a long trip of exploration across Mexico, down into Sierra Madre Mountains, his only companion being an Indian guide, meeting no one for many days but Indians. He returned safely, fully accomplishing his purpose, after which he went to Pinos Altas, New Mexico, where he served as Justice of the Peace for nine years, with great satisfaction to that mixed population, making the Mexicans "make up: and shake hands, and by whom he was called "Padre." Everyone was his friend, and he was looked upon as he best administrator they had ever had. He had large mining properties which he managed with success. His wife was born at Clarkson Corners, near Bubbalo, N. Y. Her father was David Cooper, and her mother Deorah Chriswell, both of English ancestry, and early settlers in New York. State. She was well educated and easily adapted herself to all conditions. She died suddenly of heart disease at the age of 61 years, on her 38 wedding anniversary. Her husband survived her but little more than one year.
