Seeking death information on this family along with cemetery location, etc.

The Will of ANTOINETTE “NETTIE” SMITH, dau of HARLEY FLAVEL SMITH helped me out with DAVIS WHITE SMITH’s son JAMES A. SMITH (brother of GERSHOM) and his descendants.

Probate File No. 9248
Walworth County, Wisconsin
Last Will
Nettie Smith, deceased, of City of Elkhorn

The petition of Fred Crego Smith of City of Osage in the county of Mitchell, state of Iowa---respectfully represents that Nettie Smith died at Elkhorn on the 20th day of July, 1920. Decedent was an inhabitant of City of Elkhorn, County of Walworth, and State of Wisconsin.

Decedent left a will bearing date of Dec. 2, 1893, wherein James A. Smith was named executor and that James A. Smith is now deceased. Petitioner is son of James A. Smith.

Personal Property is $2,750., Rents and profits, exclusive of homestead, is $10.00, Real Estate estimated $3,100. Indebtedness is $325.

Next of Kin:
Fred Crego Smith, Osage, Mitchell Co. Iowa - second cousin of decedent
Leland A. Smith " " " "
Stanley R. Smith " " " "
Jessie Smith Leach, Adel, Dallas Co., Iowa "
Lloyd G. Smith, Ewing Apartments, Des Moines, Iowa "
Richard J. Smith, Charles City, Floyd Co., Iowa "
Merrill G. Smith, " " " "

In the will, Nettie gives all property both Real and Personal to my cousin, James A. Smith of Osage, Mitchell County, State of Iowa. She signed it, Nettie Smith. (Shirley's note--Evidently she gave up the official name of Antoinette many long years ago.)

Decedent is buried in Lot 520 in Hazel Ridge cemetery at Elkhorn. Perpetual care of $25. for caring for grave and for cemetery lot for years 1919, 1920 and 1921--$3.
(Shirley's note---this tells me that Nettie is buried there for sure.)
