(Ottawa Co.)

To help settle the estate of the late Robert “Bob” Smithe, Art Smith Auctioneers has been has been commissioned to conduct a Live Public Auction at the farm.

NOTE: Bob was an 80 year life-long Marne area resident. The farm has been in the family for several generations. There are items here from 80 plus years of farm and country living. Bob had not farmed in several years, so some of the equipment reflects this nonuse. The tractors have been stored inside and are in running condition, worth your attention. Many of the tractors have been on this farm for over 65 years. In his later years Bob got into motorcycles and there are a lot of “barn finds” in this Auction, but both the Harley Davidsons are in very nice running condition and ready for your summer fun. Many antiques, farm primitives from the attic & outbuildings, plus the tractors, motorcycles and long list of guns will make this multi-ring country Auction most interesting & worth your attention.
