Obituary Sarah Elizabeth (Bishop) Smith,
Montgomery County, Missouri, 19 Dec 1909
Montgomery Standard, Montgomery County, Missouri, 21 January 1910 Sallie Bishop Smith, the subject of this sketch, was born and raised at the old [David J and Harriet (McCormack)-wfb] Bishop home ten miles west of Montgomery City. She and her twin sister, Mrs Maggie Clement, were the oldest of a family of eleven children. Their mother having died while the most of the children were small, the care of the family fell on the two oldest girls, and though their ages were the same, still they all looked to Sallie as the head of the house. This duty she never shirked, taking a mother's care and responsibility on her young shoulders. She united with the M.E. church while young and remained a faithful member to the last. She was sick for more than a year, and though her sufferings were intense, no one ever heard her murmur, but expressed herself as being ready to go. On December 19th she fell into a peaceful sleep and quietly passed away. At her request she was buried at Bethel church, her funeral being preached by Rev. Bowles. She leaves a husband, daughter, two sisters, one brother and a host of friends to mourn her death. Those who knew her best loved her most.
