About Abigail Misner

From original (undated) newpsper clipping, Ventura CA: "Death of Grandma Smith. Mrs. Abigail Smith, mother of Mrs. Judge Poplin, died at her daughter's home on Tuesday night [NOTE: "night" written over with "morn" written over it.], January 2d. Abigail Misner was born in Butler County, Ohio, April 12th 1811. When yet a child the family moved to Indiana. In 1835 she was united in marriage to John W. Smith, who died in 1872. Mrs. Smith the following year removed to Kansas, and in 1887 to California. When 18 years of age she united with the Methodist church and has since been a devoted Christian worker, much loved by all who knew her. The funeral services were held at the home of Mr. Poplin Wednesday afternoon, conducted by Rev. A. A. Graves." (End transcription - hmh) Note: Abigail's original funeral card is in my possession, as well as the original framed photo of her spouse, Dr John W. Smith. John and Abigail were the parents of eight children. hmh
