"Indians Told to Git - In the summer of 1832, before the organization of the County and the fixing of its county seat - when the site of Urbana was perhaps only what it had been for generations before, an Indian camping ground - a large number of Indians came and camped around the spring above alluded to as situated near the stone bridge (on Main Street). It happened to be at the time of the excitement caused by the Black Hawk War, and caused not a little apprehension among the few inhabitants around the Big Grove, although the presence in the company of many women and children of the Indians should have been an assurance of no hostile errand. A meeting of the white settlers was had, and the removal of the strange visitors determined upon as a measure of safety. A committee consisting of Stephen Boyd, Jacob Smith, Cabe Rice and Elias Stamey was appointed by the white settlers charged with the duty of having a talk with the red men. The committee went to the camp and, mustering their little knowledge of their language, announced to the Indians that they must 'puck-a-chee,' which they understood to be a command to them to leave the country. The order was at once obeyed. The Indians gathered up their ponies, pappooses and squaws and left, greatly to the relief of the settlers."[4]

On 1 Feb 1833 when Jacob was 27, he married Margaret Jane Edmundson Buchanan BEATTIE, GG Grandmother, daughter of James BEATTIE (bef 1788-aft 21 Sep 1821) & Hester (Esther) FULTON (ca 1783-ca 1821), in Shelby Co, KY. Born on 13 Dec 1814 in Glades Spring, Washington, VA. Margaret Jane Edmundson Buchanan died in Kansas, IL on 24 Oct 1896; she was 81. Buried in Mt. Hope Cemetery, Urbana, Champaign, IL.

Margaret's parents died while she was still small. She was raised by her Aunt Mary Middleton in Shelby county, KY.[5] [6]

Mrs. Margaret Smith is one of the oldest living settlers in the county, having been a resident of this immediate vicinity for near sixty years. She was born December 13, 1814, in Washington county, West Virginia, at Glades Springs. Her father's name was James Beatty, of same county. Her mother's name was Hester Fulton, of London county, Virginia. Her parents died when she was about seven years old. She was married January 31st, 1833, to Jacob Smith, in Shelby county, Kentucky. Mr. Smith was born in Shelby county, Kentucky. Mr. and Mrs. Smith came to this county October 16, 1833. They came in an old Virginia wagon, drawn by oxen, and settled on a part of the farm now owned by the family, about a mile east of Urbana, where they built a log cabin. Mrs. Smith says, "We first lived in this cabin with two rooms and a leanto with a lynn bark loft, puncheon floor, no windows. We were happy and thought we were fortunate in having such a good house. Monday after we came the first town lots in Urbana were sold at auction. The Brumley school house near us was the first school house in the neighborhood. Andrew Stephenson, John Gardner and Chancy Standish were among the first teachers. Mr. Smith built a new house in 1837, which was a good one for that day. The flooring was sawed by a whip saw, and the lath was made by hand, all by Mr. Smith." Mr. Smith was school director, road overseer, etc., but did not care for offices, found enough to do to attend to his own business, which he did, and by industry and good management, in which he was ably assisted by his wife, had six hundred acres of well-improved land all paid for when he died, in March, 1854. The habits of economy and thrift have extended to the children who, to-day, are among the best and most successful farmers in the county. There were born to Mr. and Mrs. Smith the following childreen: Elizabeth, who is at home; Malinda J., died at the age of 3 years; James N., farmer, living near; Eliza A., married a Mr. Turner, and lives in Woodbury county, Iowa; Sarah Margaret, married Mr. Shroyer and lives in Oswego, Kans.; William H., a farmer, living in Kimball county, Texas; Armstrong B., a farmer, in Urbana township; John T., died in infancy; David M., a farmer, and Jacob Mervin, a farmer. Mrs. Smith has been a member of the Baptist church in Urbana for over 30 years and is an earnest, faithful christian. She lives quietly on the old farm which she has seen brought from a wilderness until it now is in a high state of cultivation. Her daughter, Elizabeth, and her son, Mervin, and family share the old home with her, and here, surrounded by grand-children, she enjoys the fruit of a well-spent life of industry and takes pleasure in looking back and talking of the privations as well as the joys of the early days.[7]

James N. Smith, a prominent farmer of Urbana Township, is the oldest son of Jacob and Margaret Smith, and was born in Champaign County, Nov. 20, 1836. He received a common-school education, and at the same time a thorough and practical training in all the details of farming. His father was one of the pioneers of Champaign County, and at that time farm hands were scarce and very difficult to obtain, consequently the boys were required to work early and late. In those days school facilities were of secondary importance and the advantages for book-learning were at best very limited. But the discipline of hard work and systematic application to business is an excellent educator, and made of our subject a self-reliant man.

James N. Smith remained with his parents on the farm until the age of manhood, when he married Miss Lizzie, daughter of Caleb Williams, and began farming for himself until the war broke out. In 1862 he enlisted in Co. B, 76th Ill. Vol. Inf., and took part in the seige of Vicksburg, the battles of jackson, Miss., Ft. Blakely and many other engagements. On one occasion he received a severe shock from the explosion of a shell, which rendered him unconscious for several hours. In July, 1865, he was honorably discharged from the service. On his return from the army he settled on his present farm, which is one of the finest in the township. It contains 240 acres with a fine, handsome residence and substantial farm buildings. Mr. Smith is an enterprising, energetic man, and is quite extensively engaged in stock-raising, giving his attention specially to the best breeds of cattle and hogs.

The four children of the household are Ellis, Eva, Bertie and Mervin. Jacob Smith, the father of our subject, was born in Shelby county, Ky., in March, 1805, and was the oldest of ten children, the offspring of Nicholas and Elizabeth (Potter) Smith, natives of Germany. He was married in 1833 to Miss Margaret J., daughter of James and Hester (Fulton) Beattie. Her paternal grandfather was a native of Scotland and emigrated to America, before the Revolutionary War. The parents of Mrs. Smith died in Boone County, MO. Of their family of ten children, but four lived to maturity. After Jacob Smith came to Champaign County, he settled on the land which is now included in the homestead, and where his widow resides. His death occurred in 1854. The Fulton branch of Mrs. Smith's family was of English origin and settled in Washington County, Va., where she was born in 1814. She is now in the seventy-third year of her age, is quite active in mind and body, and is held in high esteem by all who know her.[8]
