Guthrie & Sons ... early Crawfordsville Commerce

Main Street looking East, 1878
William and Elizabeth Guthrie made Crawfordsville their home and raised their boys in this city. William was a butcher and two of his lads followed in his footsteps. Fount (Fountain B.) and his brother Silas W. worked together, while another brother became a printer. Fount passed away in 1895, and Silas continued the family trade until about 1907. Sadly, Silas and his second wife, Eliza Jane, died within five days of one another.
