August 7, 1919 - "My aunts name was Alice Wood Lilley. The store had mostly bridal things such as dishes , stemware etc.,and many brides to be registered there.

"In the basement section there was a toy store. It originally started out as a hardware store years ago owned by her husband Cooley Lilley. It was two doors down from St. Michaels Church and right next store to Doubets Jewelry store.
I drove the delivery truck while I was attending P.M.C."
