I was never late for school at Lothair,in the 8th grade you could see my house any time you looked out of the window. My name is the same as yours except for the last letter:) You may not remember me, but I know you will remember my better half. You and Rhema might have called her Captian.
I remember, Ance Yorks Grocery , Gran Whites Grocery, Matt Deatons Grocery, John Whitakers Grocery, Gross grocery. All of these were at Chavies, Ky. Ance Yorks, Gross and John Whitakers were all in the same location at one time or another. Matt and Lillie Deaton had a room in thier house converted into a store complete with brown sugar that was dipped and weighed and placed into paper bags. Also pinto beans were measured and bagged. Eggs were sold fresh from the henhouse. lol. Milk was sold straight from the cow in the barn. lol There was also ( for history sake) a store called Gabe Napiers near Chavies. Tom and Susie Myers, Tom Allens, Willie McIntoshes, I have forgotten the name of the one at the Clearfork Road on Grapevine. There was also a barber shop owned by Brenton Davis at Chavies. Bess and Tom Estridge Diner was there also.
Tesasgirl, I had no idea that Jerome was from Perry co! The last name is not a familiar name around here. I remember when They went to Burmuda and lived for awhile. He liked to do wood work. When I got married he made a measuring cup holder and some other things for me. Nice people!

Dayton Dunn's store is still open and Bill Helton now runs it. I am married to Bill's son which is Dayton's grandson. The store has so many memories and antiques of how life was back about 30 or 40 years ago. It is very interesting to go in and see all of the stuff hanging on the wall and all of the old pictures.
