The Search for Edward Arthur Smith

This really isn’t that big of a deal, but it does involve some 20th century LDS history, an LDS church president, and a previous Keepa post I did. It ended up being a big deal for me. Edward Arthur Smith was the adopted son of Joseph F. and Julina Lambson Smith, and the oldest child in the Smith households. He is also my wife Katie’s great-grandfather, which is the only reason I took notice of him in the first place. He would never have considered himself “lost”, and I certainly can’t claim to have “found” him in any real sense, but there is a search involved, and a couple of stories connected to church history. This, then, is all about my search for Edward Arthur Smith, who turned out to be pretty remarkable in the end.
