Rev Rufus SMITH b 1833 OH, s/o Elon SMITH and Corintha GILLETT. Rufus Smith m Sarah Jane WHEELER on Oct 8, 1854 and lived in Ashtabula Co, OH in 1860. By 1863 he was a minister in United Brethern church and served as minister in at least the following locations:

-New Lebanon, Mercer Co, PA: 1863
-Geneva, Greenwood Twp Crawford Co PA: ca mid 1870's
-Maple Grove, French Creek Circuit PA: 1878-9
-Corry Mission, Union City Mission, New Ireland: 1891-92

The family is found living in Sugar Grove, Warren, PA in 1900. I think Rufus died in 1911 and Sarah Jane in 1925. Would like to know burial place?
