This is from a November 1925 issue of newspaper. I do not think it is the Tampico Tornado (different format). Perhaps a newspaper out of Princeton, IL

Albert J. Smith

Albert J. Smith was born March 2, 1839, at Princeton, Ill., and passed away at his home in Dover, Ill., October 28, 1925. When 21 years of age he responded to the call of his country and served in the army for three months during the civil war.

Mr. Smith was a man who was always interested in community affairs. Whenever he was able to do so he readily assisted any in the time of need.

He was united in marriage December, 1860, to Miss Elizabeth Avery of LaMoille. In the year of 1866, they moved to their home in Dover, and it was in this home where three children were reared: Merle Kepford, of Kewanee, Ill., Mrs. Laura Dean of Chicago, and Mrs. Campbell, of Pittsburg, Pa. Mr. Smith was at the time of his death 86 years, 8 months and 26 days of age.

He leaves to mourn his loss his wife, the three members of the family, a number of relatives and firends. Mr. and Mrs. Smith next month would have celebrated their sixtyfifth wedding anniversary had he lived that long.
