'LONGBRANCH STARS, OVER SEARCHMONT' 

Now here, is a delightfully true but tragic tale from 1935, about a remote country village, nestled alone in the  mountains, ... 'Searchmont' in Northern Ontario about 45 miles from Sault Ste. Marie.  It was my own father, Cornelius Booth, when I was young who had shown me away back in the early 1960's the lost abandoned remains of the old family house from the '30's, explaining how it had come to an end, when the town's fire which destroyed the entire village began in his father Gilbert Booth's house, along The Searchmont River.
