Note: Obituary / Daniel Tupper Smith
The subject of this sketch, Mr. Daniel Tupper Smith, who died on the 26th of Aug, after a long and painful illness from cancer of the bowels, was eldest of five sons and was born in Oakland, Brant county, Oct. 17th, 1836, and with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Chauncey Smith, moved to the township of Bayham, on what was finally known as the old Smith homestead, and where his parents resided until their deaths. Daniel resided on the homestead until 28 years of age. His grandfather was a U. E. Loyalist and came from Springfield, Mass. He was accidentally shot through the leg during the War of 1812 and died from the effects of the wound. The late D. T. Smith united with the Methodist church when a young man, 24 years of age, when the meetings were held in what was known as the Bentley school house. Soon after his conversion a new church was erected on his father's farm, of which he was an active member up to the time of his death. On the23rd of Sep, 1862 he was united in marriage to Sarah Saunders, second daughter of the later Joseph M. and Charlotte Saunders, who passed away after a lingering illness at the early age of 37 years.
Being left alone with five small children circumstances compelled him to find another companion, and on Mar 31st, 1875, he was married to Mrs. N. Moyer of Salford, by whom he had two children. Deceased was highly respected by all who knew him, and for honesty and square dealing his equals are few if any in the community in which he lived. His sound counsel and advice will be missed by many. He was a life long Reformer.
The funeral was conducted by the Rev. Mr. Finlay, and was very largely attended. The pall bearers were all nephews of deceased, as follows: -Wm. Saunders, Frank Armstrong, Fred Saunders, Elmer Smith, Josiah Smith and Lloyd Smith. Heleavesto mourn his loss a sorrowing widow and four sons-Henry M. of Steele, North Dakota; Herbert W. of Big Rock, Ill.; Chauncey S. and Hiram H., on the two homesteads; also four brothers-Josiah B. and Chauncey E. of the 12th con.,Dereham; Dr.Joseph H. of Albion, Neb., and Chas. A. of Romeo, Mich. The remains were interred in the family plot at the Dobbie cemetery, North Bayham. Both of deceased's parents reached good ages - 76 and 77 years respectively."
