2. Jesse H. Smith
The middle initial for Jesse Smith is incorrect on the WWI Honor Roll at the Milford Town Hall. It is not "E." The marker at the Milford Public Library down the street has the correct name: Jesse H. Smith. That is how his name appears in the Federal Censuses for both 1900 and 1910, and on his grave marker.
