Jonathan Smith was in South Dakota, though that was not his home state. Actually not to bad a young fellow. Not afraid of the old-timers who liked to "lord it over the flock" as I remember. I knew him in the early nineties. He was single at the time. Some years later I spoke with him briefly on the phone. He was in Tennessee at that time. Had also married by then. No idea where he is now.
It seems the better C.O.'s usually drop from sight. Definitely in the case of circuit overseers the cream does not raise to the top.
