While sorting through some books I bought recently, I found a death notice for Emma C Smith (nee Kimmel) who died at her home 4 miles south of Attica (Ohio) on Monday June 11, 1900 at 8:00 am. She was the wife of Thomas J Smith and was 21 years old. The funeral was June 12, but because she died of scarlet fever, there was no public service. (Yes, I got all this off the death notice.)
