    Notes 
    • One of the leading citizens of Caribou, respected not only for his excellent business ability but also for his fine friendliness and his interest in the welfare of his community. He has many business interests, all of which he has developed to a substantial success and has always shown himself willing to help promote any movement which would be for the best interests of the community in which he lives. He is the son of Isaac and Mary (Gievie) Smith, both parents deceased. His father, a native of Canada, was a successful farmer and his mother was a native of Maine.

      Mr. Smith, due to the fact that both of his parents were invalids, left school at the age of ten years and began work on the farm, took care of his mother and father and laid the foundation of his future success. He now owns two farms, one of two hundred acres and another of one hundred acres, worked by his son. Besides farming he is a dealer in fertilizer and a broker of potatoes with a warehouse on the Bangor and Aroostook Railroad. He ships four hundred to five hundred cars yearly, deals in both table and seed potatoes, and has, in general, a most prosperous business. He is a director of the Aroostook Trust Company. In politics a Republican, he is in his fraternal affiliations a member of the Free and Accepted Masons in the Lodge, Chapter, Council, Commandery of Knights Templar, and Ancient Arabic Order of Nobles of the Mystic Shrine. He is also a member of the Modern Woodsmen of America.

      His family are all members of the Methodist Church.
