Smith Heirs to Erect Fine Tribute
to the Memory of His Mother
According to information from Millburn, heirs of the late William Henry (Silent) Smith are to erect a magnificent memorial to his mother, the late Mrs. George Smith, at the Millburn cemetery, the memorial to take the form of an immense, artistic granite entrance to the cemetery, together with a solid granite hedge.
Fred L. Trotter of Evanston, of Kimball & Trotter, agents for the Smith estate in this part of the country, admitted that he had been directed by Wm. S. Mason of Evanston and George Mason of New York to look into the matter of providing an ornamental entrance to the Millburn cemetery, but stated that this is as far as the matter has developed.
Neverthe less it is gossiped at Millburn that Wm. Stewart whose land adjoins the cemetery has been offered a good price for a small amount of acreage which will be used for the new entrance to the God's acre in which, the mother of the late multi-milllonaire lies buried.
In case the deal goes through the present entrance, abutting on the Millburn road and even with the cemetery will be replaced with a granite hedge and the entrance placed in the erstwhile Stewart tract, a diagonally placed entrance dignified with granite and enobled with the best exemplifications of modern art.
It is also probable that the quiet country cemetery will be relandscaped and improved into one of the most beautiful rural burial plots in the country as the strong desire of the Smith heirs is to do all in their power to make the memorial an everlasting one.
