Biography

  • Cecil Radnor Earl Smith was born on 28 Aug 1894, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.1
  • Father: Franklin William Smith (b 10 Mar 1862 Macon County IL) - Mother: Louise Mabel Campbell (b 2 Dec 1863 Decatur IL.)1
  • Cecil completed three years of high school.2
  • He married Pearl Arolwein Laird, daughter of Ezekiel Laird and Alice Pearl Howard, on Thursday, 17 Sep 1914 in Williston, North Dakota.1
  • Cecil Radnor Earl Smith was a florist and greenhouseman.1
  • He was a worker on a truck farm.2
  • Cecil Radnor Earl Smith and Pearl appeared on the 1940 Federal Census of Williston, Williams County, North Dakota, at 921 Muitt St, enumerated 5 Apr 1940, They own their home with a reported value of $2700.2
  • In 1946 Cecil and Pearl moved to Kennewick, Washington.1
  • Radnor Smith was a florist and greenhousman in Williston, North Dakota most of his life. In 1946, after his mother had died, he and his wife Pearl decided to move to Kennewick, Washington. The reason for this move reportedly was to be near their daughter RaDora, her husband George Oelkers, and his new grandson Richard. Also, Pearl's brother Howard Laird was already living and working in the Tri-cities area.

    Tri-cities was a booming economic area in those days, due largly to the buildup of the Hanford Nuclear Reservation at Richland, Washington.

    Prior to their move to Kennewick, their youngest child, Richard Smith came out earlier to start school at the beginning of the school year. Radnor also dismantled his greenhouse and sent it by train to their new home. However, prior to their move, Radnor suffered a serious heart attack. As a result, he could not contine in his occupation and the greenhouse was sold shortly after it arrived in Kennewick.

    Radnor spent the remainder of his years in semi-retirement. He worked as a salesman for Watkins products. He and Pearl also owned two rental houses, one of which was given to Richard just after he married Beverly in 1957. Richard and his wife lived in that house at least through 1998.1
  • Cecil Radnor Earl Smith died on 22 Oct 1967 in Kennewick, Washington, at age 73.1
  • (an unknown value.)1
