About Preserved Smith

Preserved Smith was born in Warwick, Mass., April 17th, 1820, being the son of Rev. Preserved Smith, an Episcopalian Rector. Mr. Smith was educated in the common schools with one year at the academy, and at the age of fifteen years he became a dry goods clerk in Boston, remaining in that position four years. Mr. Smith came to Ohio in 1839, first locating in Cincinnati and then went to Troy, Ohio, as a merchant. In 1856 he located in Dayton as the financial manager of the Dayton & Michigan Railroad. He held this position during the panic of 1857 and largely by his efforts the road was finally completed. In 1864 the road was leased to the Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton Railway Company, at which time Mr. Smith retired. Upon leaving the railroad, Mr. Smith bought in 1864 the interest of Caleb Parker in the Car Works and the firm name was changed to Barney, Smith & Company. On January 22nd, 1877, Mr. Smith retired from the Company, selling a portion of his interest to Frederick E. Smith. Mr. Preserved Smith died January 21st, 1887.
