This 1870 Census entry appears to be A. E. also.
1870 Census of Brown County, Illinois, Mt Sterling Twp
140/140 18 July 1970
Arthur Smith 53 m farmer Ohio
Ortha Smith 51 f Ohio
Samuel Smith 21 m Ohio
Hannah Smith 23 f Ohio
George Smith 12 m Ohio
Arthur Smith 8 m Ohio
Marion Smith 18 m Ohio
Jane Smith 87 f Ireland
Comparing with the 1880 Census, Ortha and Orpha are similar names, ages of Arthur and Orpha/Ortha are exactly 10 years apartin the cenuses, Both are from Ohio, June appears to be Arthurís mother and she is from Ireland and this is also matches in the 1880 Census. So while not absolute evidence builds a strong possibility.
I can find no other references to this family in the resources I have.
My name is Ed Stoneking, I am looking for the obit for A.E.Smith who last showed up in the 1880 versailles twp Brown Co. census. His son is listed as having burial plot 105 in the Versailles Cemetary but I do not know who is buried there.
