from William Cutler's "History of the State of Kansas"
"DANIEL SMITH, deceased, an early settler and farmer of Granada, was a native of Chautauqua County, N. Y.; married Harriet Gage in Crawford County, Pa.; lived for a few years in Columbia County, Wis., and in 1858, bought and located upon the claim of Joseph Eldredge, in Granada, Kan. Mrs. Smith died here in 1857, and the husband and father in 1860. Six children survived them - Julia, Elmira, Mary, H. E., Ellen and Sylvia. H. Eugene Smith, the only son, enlisted August 29, 1862, in Company I, Thirteenth Kansas Volunteer Infantry. He was at this time not quite fourteen years of age; undoubtedly the youngest soldier who ever enlisted in either the Union or Rebel armies. He carried his musket and served out his three years term of service, and has since lived in Nemaha County with the exception of about three years spent in the mountains of the West. His wife was Mary Graham, of Granada. Mr. Smith by trade is a plasterer, and his home in Wetmore is a pleasant one."
