Dr. J. Hamilton Smith
Pottstown today mourns the passing of one of its civic stalwarts, Dr. J. Hamilton Smith, former pastor of the Trinity Reformed church.
An indefatigable shepherd of his flock, Dr. Smith nevertheless found time from his arduous church duties to give much of his energy to the advancement of Pottstown. He was an ardent social worker, helped tremendously in charity drives, and yet had time for fellowship with civic club members and his countless friends.
He gave 34 years of his 41 years in the ministry to Pottstown. During this time he faced adversity and happiness. His church in 1926 was damaged severly by fire. So he had to obtain funds for its rebuilding. He entered into a financial campaign with vim an vigor, soon raised $100,000 in a whirlwind campaign that saw the community sympathetically come to his aid, and lived to see his church free of debt.
Although stricken with a heart ailment, Dr. Smith really never stopped working never ceased helping the rich and poor alike with a comforting word, a healing hand. He was bedridden for a time, but he shook off the effects of his ailment, and came back to work diligently for his congregation.
Almost up to the final minute of his life on this earth, Dr. Smith gave his time to Trinity Reformed and its 700 parishoners. He attended a consistory meeting Monday night, but left the session before its completion so that he could make a sick call. He died shortly after midnight upon his return home from his final pastoral duty.
Dr. Smith was a man among men. He had a warm handshake, and infectious smile and a kind word for all he met. He molded many a fine woman and many a strong young man in his Sunday school and church. All, and thousands more will mourn his passing.
Pottstown will miss him. But his kind work, his noble deeds, his influence upon the community.

He was buried in June 1943 at Mount Olivet Cemetery, Hanover, York Co., PA, Findagrave #39846942.

He died on 1 January 1912 at Mt. Vernon, Linn Co., IA, at age 65

Obituary -- The Lisbon Herald, Lisbon, Iowa, Thursday, 11 JAN 1912 (via Findagrave.com):

John Stouffer Smith was the son of George C. Smith and Hannah Stouffer Smith and was born in Chambersburg, Franklin county, Pa., November 22, 1846. He died at Mt. Vernon, Iowa, at ten o'clock in the evening of January 1, 1912, at the age of 65 years, 1 month and 10 days. He had three brothers and three sisters, two of whom died, Lydia Ann in early childhood and one in infancy. Two brothers, Dr. William C., of Harrisburg, Pa; George H., of Newark, N.J., and two sisters, Mrs. S. E. Shetter, of DeKalb, Ill., and Mrs. Kate M. Shaffer, of Philadelphia, Pa., remain to mourn the loss of a brother. Mrs. Shetter, the eldest, was the only one who could be present at his death.

Mr. Smith was married to Miss Josie Wagner in Toledo, Iowa, November 24, 1874. There were born to them Howard Alfred, December 27, 1876, who gladdened the home for one brief month, and Dr. Homer C. Smith, of Correctionville, Iowa, who was present to strengthen him and to cheer the heart of his mother.

The deceased grew to manhood on a farm. Beyond the common school he was educated in Cottage Hill college, York, Pa. At about the age of 21 he moved west to Mount Carroll and Sterling, Illinois, where he clerked in dry goods stores for a time and then entered the Christian ministry. He became a member of the United Brethren conference in Iowa in 1873 and filled the following appointments: Red Oak near Mechanicsville, Centennial church, near Lisbon, and Waltham and County Line in Tama county, Iowa.

Severe nervous headaches drove him from this field of labor to which it seemed God had called him. He then became a jeweler and learned the trade in Toledo, Iowa. For several years he continued in the business in Lisbon, Mechanicsville and Tipton, but failing health forced him to an outdoor life and he took up the Sunday School Missionary work in Cedar county and did most effective service for the cause of his Master, the interest of which lay very near his heart.

In 1891 he again entered the jewelry business in Mount Vernon, and continued therein until five years ago. Soon after moving to Mount Vernon he completed the optical course in the McCormick Optical school in Chicago and becaem a successful optician.

Mr. Smith was mayor of Lisbon or a number of years and a member of the school board of Mount Vernon for several terms. Better than all these he was converted when a boy and enjoyed a rich religious experience until his Heavenly Father took him home. He served as Sabbath school superintendent in the Mthodist church in Mechanicsville and in the United Brethren church in Lisbon, and for many years has been a member of the board of stewarts in the Methodist church in Mount Vernon. There are many who will thank God for his help and the entire community will feel a great loss in his death.

Brother Smith was dearly beloved .......

He was buried in January 1912 at Woodlawn Cemetery, Toledo, Tama Co., IA, Findagrave #78854666.

CLOSING OF A YOUNG LIFE

Joseph H. Smith Dies at Hospital This Morning

Disease Puzzled the Skill of Physicians to Diagnose.

A Post Mortem Examination Was Held Today.

Joseph H. Smith passed away at Emergency hospital at about 8:30 this morning of peritonitis after an illness of nearly three weeks. His case was a very peculiar one, which taxed the skill of the best physicians of the city. The first symptoms were those of appendiciitis and when taken to the hospital it was believed that an operation would be necessary, but it later developed that even the operation would not save the young man's life.

Decedent is a young man well known throughout the city and county, having been born in Eagle Township in August, 1876. He has since resided in Lincoln and Orange townships, and it is in Lincoln that he is best known by reason of his long residence there and association with the people of that vicinity. He was a young man of much promise and his death at this time is a severe blow to his relatives and many friends. He was for the past hear and a half a resident of Waterloo, coming here to accept a position with the Cedar Valley Telephone company, and later becoming a stockholder in the Self-Feeding Pump company, having for some time held the position of shipping clerk with the latter company.

Decedent leaves father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Eli J. Smith; sister, Miss Cloe Smith; three brothers, Oliver, Lloyd and Elmer, of which decedent was the eldest. All the children are at home and with the elder gentleman look after the interests of the farm, which is located in Orange township, opposite the county farm and adjacent to Hammond avenue as it is now extended. He also leaves a loving young wife, who was formerly Miss Bertha Flickinger, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. D. Flickinger. They were married about four years ago. Mrs. Smith is almost overcome with grief at the loss of her husband, and being in a very delicate condition it makes the blow all the harder to bear.

The funeral services will be held at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon at the parental home opposite the county farm and adjacent to Hammond avenue, conducted by Rev. J. A. Earl. Interment will be in the Hudson cemetery. Decedent was a consistent member of the First Baptist church, joining at Hudson several years ago.

He was buried in April 1904 at Orange Township Cemetery, Waterloo, Black Hawk Co., IA, Findagrave #69995430.
