Smith, James (3), a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, was born in Washington Co., Pa., in 1791. He was converted in early life, and in 1818 was licensed to preach, and admitted on trial into the Ohio Conference. He was ordained deacon in 1820, and elder in 1822. For thirty years he rendered effective service, and when, in 1852, the conference was divided, he became a member of the Cincinnati Conference, and received a supernumerary relation, which he sustained until his decease. He died in Sidney, O., April 7, 1856. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1856, p. 152; Simpson, Cyclop. of Methodism, s.v.
