p. 1198 FREDERICK SMITH, farmer, post-office Greenville, was born in Germany January 20, 1828.  His parents were Jacob and Magdalena Smith, natives of Germany, who immigrated to Allegheny County, Penn, in 1830, where they resided until the spring of 1844, and then settled on the farm in West Salem Township where our subject now lives.  They reared eight children:  Frederick, John, deceased; Mary, wife of Peter Yeager, of Perry Township; Elizabeth, widow of William Whitney, of Green Township; Magdalena, wife of Andrew Kechler, of Kansas; George B.; Christina, wife of Edward Courtright, of Trumbull County, Ohio, and Caroline, wife of John Snodgrass, of Iowa.  The parents were Presbyterians, and died on the old homestead, the father April 20, 1875, and the mother November 18, 1886.  Frederick has lived on his present farm since the coming of his parents in 1844.  He was married August 25, 1887, to Emeline, daughter of James and Jemima Gillis, pioneer residents of West Salem Township, where Mrs. Smith was born.  Politically Mr. Smith has been a life-long Democrat, and reveres the memory of his parents, who settled here forty-four years ago.
