Mr. Smitherman was born in Macoupin county, August 4, 1859, but spent most of his life in this city, where he was formerly in the saloon business. He was married the first time to Mary Ann McKenney, who died in 1894. The following year he married Mary Belle Pope in Athens. She survives with two daughters, Mrs. Maude Oliver of Chicago and Mrs. Walter Leisch of Lincoln. He also leaves fours grandchildren and one great grandchild.
