Smith Farm Apples
One of the reasons I chose to create a blog for the George and Sarah Ann Gibson Meears family was because I was unable to find documentation on the family. I was also sad to find very little narrative history even after I had begun to find sources. I had always been told that Aunt Norma left her files to her son, Glen Smith, in Lehi. In order to make the podcast I went to visit him and spent several hours at his home. He allowed me to copy a history of Oliver Smith that was written by Mary Pulley. This told of the farm that Jane and Oliver Smith created South of American Fork and West of Pleasant Grove. Today it is being divided up and sold. Much of the property is condominiums. I asked my father to travel there with me and tell me some of his memories. This is a recording of Ronald Glen Smith telling his experience as a child on the farm of William T. Smith. This was the original Oliver and Jane Meears Smith family farm that is told about in the life story written by Mary Pulley. To listen to the podcast please see the right sidebar.
