Smith Frederick Family
Clementine Margaret Frederick Smith was born near New Lisbon, Ohio, in 1828. She married Sidney Strong Smith near Eddyville, Iowa, on November 24, 1847. She was still living in Kansas in 1903, the last date for which any information is provided in this collection. Her husband, Sidney Strong Smith, was also born in Ohio. He moved to Iowa in the 1840s and lived in Oskaloosa. In 1850, he went with his brother to the gold-fields of California, but soon returned. He recruited Company K, 18th Iowa Volunteer Infantry, during the Civil War and apparently served as an officer of the company. In postwar years he moved to Columbus, Kansas, where he died. Electra C. Frederick Owen (1822-ca.1859) was Clementine Smith's sister and also lived in Oskaloosa.
