John Smith, one of the earliest pioneers, came to Flora township in 1866, and located in section 2, Flora township. In 1868 he moved to section 12. In 1876 he went to Texas. But in 1880 he came back and settled on the old farm in section 12. He died Sept. 24, 1892, at the age of sixty-seven. His wife, Julia A. Falkal, died June 27, 1895, at the age of fifty. Mr. Smith was a hard-working, reliable man, and was well liked wherever he was known.
