Finding this obituary gave us the evidence we needed to confirm the identity of Joseph Smith's parents. We feel the listing of "Mrs Br. Bradley...and Joseph and John Smith" proves that Valentine Schmidt and Anna Marie Schmidt were our Gr-Gr-Gr-Grandparents! One sad note - she died on Thanksgiving Day, which was held on Sunday, Nov 21st.
