     Jacob Hannibal Smith J.H. SMITH CITIZEN CHIROPRACTOR led To His Reward At His New Home In Arnold For Several Months a Sufferer, Called Tuesday Morning at 5 O'clock Was Formerly and for Many Years a Resident Near Garfield Church, of Which he was a Worthy Member
Jacob H Smith was born at Hannibal, Mo., November 5, 1865 and died at his Arnold home Tuesday morning, January 23, 1917. The parents afterwards removed to Illinois, from which state they removed to Nebraska in 1884, and J.H. had resided here ever since excepting , in Michigan, and while he was away taking a course in Chiropractic, and some time he spent in Grand Island, where he built a lucrative practice, then turned it over to his son, who had become a graduate Chiropractor, and enjoys a large practice at the same place still. All the family were at his bedside when the end came.
On November 13, 1889, he was unified in marriage with Stella M Dillon, who survives. To this union was born four sons and one daughter, all of whom are living, except the one son who died in infancy.
Mr. and Mrs. A.L. Auble and Mr. and Mrs. Smith homesteaded in the hills near each other and families had been neighbors and friends for twenty-seven years, and in all that time had never had but the most neighborly feelings for and dealings with each other, and all neighbors could say of Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
Many of the friends of Mr. and Mrs. J.H. Smith were shocked to hear of his death Tuesday mourning of Mr. Smith. He had been ailing for sometime and it had been apparent to those who knew his condition that the end must come sooner or later, but it came sooner than they had expected.
They had removed from their Garfield home to Arnold last fall in order to be near school and away from the work of farm life, as he was unable to do the work and turned the farm over to his brother-in-law, Mr. G.E. Dillon.
The decease which finally caused his death had been slowing gnawing at his vitals for some time, and had been hardly combated but without success.
The Funeral was held in the Garfield church, Wednesday at noon. Rev. Gettys delivering the sermon. He was assisted by Rev. Boldman. The remains were laid to rest in the Garfield cemetery beside an infant child, interred there some years ago.
The last sad rites were attended by a large number of friends from the county, the town here and from Arnold, as he was a man that will be sadly missed in church and business circles. His family have the sympathy of all who know them in this their sad bereavement.5 He was buried at Garfield Cemetery, Lincoln Co., Nebraska.5,4 He was born on November 5, 1865 at Hannibal, Marian Co., Missouri.2,1,4 He married Stella Meriam Dillon, daughter of Augustine Wells Dillon and Angeline Clouser, on November 13, 1889 at Garfield, Lincoln Co., Nebraska.2,6,1 Jacob Hannibal Smith died on January 23, 1917 at Arnold, Custer Co., Nebraska, at age 51.2,1,4

Mynor was born November 16, 1899, on the Garfield Table in Lincoln County to Jacob and Stella (Dillon) Smith. He spent most of his childhood on the family farm at Garfield Table and graduated with the Arnold High School Class of 1918. Following that graduation, Mynor enlisted in the Army where he spent a short time. After WW I, he returned home to work on the farm he called home. On August 27, 1919, in Arnold, Mynor married Cecil Nansel, his steadfast love and wife of 68 years. They worked on the farm for many years before moving to Arnold in 1945. Mynor remained involved in agriculture and the farm work of his sons. Mynor did pursue other occupational interest in his long life. In 1956, he assisted local builder Quin Conley in the construction of a new home for Cecil and himself.

Other organizations Mynor associated with included Custer Lodge #148 and Eastern Star Chapter 164. Over the years he held nearly every office in the Masonic Lodge and was often Worthy Patron of Eastern Star. At the time of his death, Mynor was the holder of the Gold Robert Carrel Jordan Medal.
