John Smith 22 M   Farmer   Ky
Ellen Smith 29 F       "
Nancy Graves 60 F       Md
This Nancy appears to be Nancy (BUCKLER) GRAVES, widow of William B. GRAVES, but I don't know how she connects to John or Mary Ellen.  One of Nancy (BUCKLER) GRAVES's daughters became a nun, so the connection may be through their religious affiliation, not genealogy.

Maria is John's sister.  Might Eliza really be a BUCKLER?

8.  Obituary (as cited in a Note in a file at WorldConnect):
Obituary taken from "The Springfield Sun"

Mr. John E. Smith, one of the county's best known citizens, died at the home of his son, Mr. J. Rich Smith in the St. Rose neighborhood last Sunday morning, aged seventy-seven years.  Deceased had been in declining health for a number of years, and his death came as no surprise to his family and friends.  Mr. Smith was a devout member of the Catholic church and was an excellent Christian man.  He was born in Marion County March 10, 1830, and at one time owned a distillery in that county, and made considerable money while engaged in that business.  In this connection it might be well to say that Mr. Smith was a remarkably temperate man.  At the age of seventeen he signed a pledge to never again touch intoxicating beverages of any kind, and we are informed that this pledge was never broken.

The deceased was twice married, but both wives preceded him to the grave.  Six children, all of this county, survive him.  They are, Mrs. J.B. Carrico, J. Rich Smith, Mrs. F.M. Carrico, Jas. E. Smith, Mrs. Barton Mattingly, and G.W. Smith.  Besides these Mr. Smith leaves sixty-three grandchildren and twenty-one great grandchildren.

The deceased at one time was an extensive land owner in this county, owning 500 or 600 acres of good land, but this he divided among his children when he became incapacited for business.

Mr. Smith was a liberal and kindhearted man; he was a good neighbor and a kind and considerate father.

Funeral services were held at St. Rose Monday, interment occuring at that place.
