Memories of Smithville-1787 to 1950

The history book that helps inform this podcast was completed and first published in 2009. In 2014 the book had its third printing. It was written by myself and published by Doug Nicol. Copies can be still be purchased at the Chamber of Commerce location in the Train Station, at Carruthers' Printing on College Street and by contacting me, Ivan Carruthers, directly.

Do you have a question for topics for future episodes?

Some of the topics for the first few episodes came from conversations I had with friends and acquaintances who I bumped into and who asked me if I remembered something about a certain part of Smithville or if I remembered a particular person. If you have a question about Smithville or some of the families from the area please send me an email. If I know something about the topic or can find out for you, I may include it in a future podcast!

    In Remembrance 2-Buck Edwards

    Dad wanted to publish another episode before Remembrance Day 2018 to honour the memory of another Smithville veteran, Buck Edwards. I think the episode speaks for itself so I won't describe the content, please enjoy. Dad and his sister Janet Shrum will be laying a wreath this Sunday at the Smithville Legion in Remembrance of their brother William who was killed in action in Holland in 1945, and their mother Mildred Leona Carruthers. Hopefully you get a chance to join everyone for the ceremony and if you do, Dad would love to say hi.
