Clyde A. Smith.

Clyde A. Smith, engaged in general farming in Eureka township, was born September 27, 1884, in the township in which he still lives, his parents being Julius B. and Ida (Eby) Smith, who are mentioned elsewhere in this volume.  He was reared and educated in this county, attending the town schools of Anita.  He remained with his parents until he reached the age of twenty-two years, and then began farming on his own account.  He is now in partnership with his father in the development and conduct of the old homestead and is an enterprising, wide-awake business man who is making good use of his time and opportunities.

On the 3d of April, 1907, Mr. Smith was united in marriage to Miss Maude Bloomfield, a daughter of Henry and Fannie (Madison) Bloomfield, who were natives of Indiana and became pioneer settlers of Adair county, arriving here at a day when Indians still lived in the district and when the work of development seemed scarcely begun.  Mr. Bloomfield was a veteran of the Civil war, having loyally served in defense of the Union at the time of the hostilities between the north and the south.  Mrs. Bloomfield still survives and is now a resident of Fontanelle.  Mr. and Mrs. Smith have two children:  Gale and Jewell, aged respectively seven and five years.  They are well known in the part of the county in which they live and enjoy the friendship of many with whom they have come in contact.  In his political views Mr. Smith has always been a republican since age conferred upon him the right of franchise, but, while he does not fail to cast his vote in support of the principles in which he believes, he has never sought nor desired office.
