Description: Widow Claims Valuable Dower. SMITHDate: November 24 1905
Newspaper published in: Farmington, MO
The appearance in Kirksville of Mrs. Lizzie SMITH, widow of the late Frank SMITH, who formerly resided in that city, promises no end of trouble to a number of property owners. It appears that Frank SMITH was thought to be a single man. During his residence there he was owner or joint owner of numerous pieces of real estate, all of which he conveyed as a single man. Mrs. SMITH came from Seattle, Wash. That she is the widow of Frank SMITH she has authentic proof. She says they were married over 20 years ago an lived together eight years. It is understood that at least a part of the property owners interested in the matter are willing to settle with Mrs. SMITH without litigation.
