Paul Ora Smeltzer was the son of James Elmer Smeltzer. Paul lived in Dallas County Iowa most if not all of his life. He worked on the farm in his early years and later he was a laborer and a supervisor at what was then known as the "Brick Yard". His family lived for some time in the Panora Iowa area. Paul married Orpha M McGrew, daughter of John Lewis McGrew and Katherine Hartman. Any information would be appreciated.
