Not many people can say that. Though he didn't wear his heart on his sleeve, he took pride in his accomplishments and in those of whom he loved.

(2a) Albert and Lena (Weigel) Wiegand's daughter Lucille Albertha Wiegand was born Feb. 7, 1900, and died Mar. 22, 1981 at her home in Jerseyville, IL. She married 1st Edward John Smith Dec. 7, 1919 at the Methodist parsonage in Jerseyville, IL. They were married by Rev. Wilson. Ed was a World War One Veteran in the 138th infantry with the National Guard from St. Louis, MO. He was gassed in the Argonne Forest and came home, and then he and Lucille were married. He lived the rest of his life in and out of government hospitals until his death. Lucille returned and resided with her parents for the following 12 years, working in Jerseyville and Alton, IL.

Lucille's first husband Edward John Smith's obituary - Edward John Smith born 28 Aug 1898, died 28 Apr 1924, son of John E. & Edith Gisy Smith, burial at Oak Grove Cemetery, Jerseyville, IL - SMITH. Edward J. Smith, Hero of Argonne, Is Dead. Funeral of World War Veteran, 25, Will Be Held Today. Edward J. Smith, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Smith, died at his home Monday night at 11:15 o'clock at the age of 25 years and 8 months. Funeral services will be conducted from the Methodist church in Jerseyville at 2:30 o'clock this afternoon, Rev. W. T. Morris officiating. The services will be in charge of Worthy Post of the American Legion. The members of the Post will assemble at the Legion Hall at 1:00 p. m. and attend the funeral ion a body.

The death of Edward Smith is one that brings back memories of but a few years ago when the doughboys of the American Expeditionary forces were driving the German hoards before them and bringing the decisive victory to the arms of the allied nations fighting for world democracy. During the few days prior to the final call Smith in his delirium fought again the battles through which he had passed on the shell torn fields of France. Smith enlisted May 15, 1917, shortly after the entry of the United States into the World War. After a brief time spent in a camp near Maxwelton, he was transferred with other Jerseyville boys to Nevada and became a part of the Missouri National Guard. From Nevada, the forces of the guard were transferred for intensive training at Fort Gill, Okla., where they were assigned to the regular army of the federal government. Smith was assigned to Company I of the 128th infantry. Among the other Jerseyville boys in this fighting organization were Fred and Harold Worthey, George Atchison, Harold Holland and Roy Cox.

On May 3, 1918, the 136th infantry sailed from New York harbor for France. It landed at Liverpool, England, May 19, and from England was taken across the channel to France. The organization fought in the great battles of Verdun, St. Miniel and in the Vosges and Argonne Drive. The Worthey boys died on the field of battle the day before Smith was badly gassed. The latter, following the incident which placed him in a hospital for some time, returned to the front again. The poison gas of the Germans had burned the membranes of his lungs so badly, however, that it left them in a condition easily susceptible to the invasion of tubercular germs. Smith went to the government hospital at Maywood March 26, where his condition grew rapidly worse. He desired to return home for the final summons and arrived here April 9. Death came at the time mentioned after only a brief season of serious illness. Smith is survived by his widow, Mrs. Lucille Wiegand Smith. The passing of Smith is similar to that of scores of other men who are answering the final call each day in America as the result of the heinous methods employed by the Germans in their warfare.
