Kirby and Bob Wade bought the Cartlidge grocery store located in a metal building where Bradshaw's insurance agency is now. About a year later, A.L. Kirby and sons bought out Bob Wade and moved 'across the street into a brick building owned by A.S. Tanner. That building was destroyed by fire in 1974, at which time it housed Arthur Appliagce. Dry goods were added to the firm's product line, and Mrs. Lutie Anderson, who worked for Kirby's 30 years, came to Kirby's. Kirby's bought the Mar- shall Kinahrew store at Cross Roads in 1921, and Carney managed and continued to operate the business there for about a year before moving it to Malakoff,, where it was located in the Jackson Building on Terry Street, now the home of Phillips' Appli- ance and Furniture. With Carney as manager, dry goods, shoes, and the like #ere stocked. Groceries were sold at the Tanner Building with Leroy as manager. A.L. Kirby was general manager of both stores. Kirby & Sons purchased the Whit Robertson Meat Market in 1935, and hired In October of 1924, Kirby's moved to a new 50 by I00 feet brick and tile building they built facing the railroad on a site where the city water tower now stands. Both stores were moved to the new location. Sam Hoskins was employed by the grocery department and Ciarlie Sherman by the hardware department. In 1932, Dan Gentry's general merchandise store was bought. New and modern factory-built store fixtures were installed in the brick building at 125 N. Terry Street, and the former building was used as a warehouse. Grocery and market, hardware, dry goods and shoe departments were included in the store. In 1932, Evelyn Whitehead Tanner was hired by Kirby's in the notion and cosmetic department. As manager and buyer of ladies' and children's wear today, Evelyn holds tim record of a 43-year tenure with the firm. Velma Nokes began her tenure with the firm in 1954 as bookkeeper, and holds the same position today. Louise Carter was employed in 1969, and Loretta Vieregge in 1973. Both are still with the firm. A.L. Kirby retired in 1950 and Carney became owner of the dry goods and Leroy owner of the grocery depart- ment.

He ruled over the trial of King Charles I and was commended by theses in authority for his efforts. He was buried with honors in Westminster Abbey upon his death. I tauted a little about the good blood lines and my esteemed ancestor, until we read a little farther and found that following the death of the judge and his burial in Westminster Abbey his remains were later dug up and hung from a millet in the center of town. A slight shadow on my good blood fines, it would appear. On the Rounsavall side we found that the grandfather two generations back came to America from France of all places I never imagined the name Rounsavall in France. In addition to our English and French ancestors we also uncovered some Dutch, German, Indian, Irish, and even a few unaccounted for great-grands along the route of the tree. Amy and Chad should be good Americans, with their universal blood lines From still another side of the family we found where a group of brothers first came to Texas from Alabama. I can recall a grandmother of mine mentioning the uprooting of the family and settlement in Texas. Although my in- formation is sketchy and for the most part inaccurate, the story I recall tells about a man in Alabama who was hit "The public is nmrely a mul- tiplied me."
