Anderson Smith III
BIOGRAPHY: "The North Missourian" April 27, 1876, Gallatin, Mo. - ANOTHER PATRIARCH GONE.
Another of Davies county's oldest settlers has fallen before the icy breath of the destroying angel. On Wednesday, April 19, Anderson Smith, of Jefferson Township, went to his eternal slumbers, at his residence near Alto Vista.
He had been confined to his room some seven or eight months with dispepesia and liver complaint. He was born in Tennessee, and in early life moved into this county, and settled near his late residence, where he has resided for 44 years. He was one of our best citizens and respected by all who knew him. Thus one by one are our gray haired sires passing away, and only their memory remains.
