JIM: Clearifies Jackman lineage; side-notes C.R. Hutchison story

Better Chronology of the enterprises of the Jackman Brothers, of the post Great Conflagration Hutchison & Patteson store, and a note from the News about the C.R. Hutchison family removing from the Pell Ham (sic) Community to Pea Ridge (Not the World Famous Pea Ridge of Cumberland County) in Columbia, KY. For those of more confused than ever learning that the capital city of Adair County had such a locale, edification and enlightenment would be greatly appreciated: Where was Pea Ridge in Columbia, Adair County, KY USA, at???

By Jim

A clearification regarding the lineages of the Frank Jackman (et. seq.) store and the J.W. Jackman (et. seq.) store; and bit more information about Mr. C.R. Hutchison.

Frank Jackman, who had established himself in Columbia as jeweler prior to 1900, expanded his business by opening a line of groceries in (or about) 1903. John W. "J.W." Jackman, a saddler by trade, carried a "stock of groceries, harness, [and] hardware."

The Jackman gentlemen were brothers and the same building housed their respective businesses, but the two firms had no connection other than the kinship of the proprietors.

The time line of each is as follows: Frank Jackman store (et seq.; established in Columbia as a jeweler prior to 1900; started selling groceries in 1903)
Frank Jackman: 1903-1907
Young Bros.: 1907-1910
Hugh Richardson: 1910-1911
Richardson & Beck: 1911-1911
Beck & English: 1911-1912
Beck & Flowers: 1912-1914
Flowers & Walker: 1914-1915
Flowers and (Thomas Oliver "Tom") Patteson: 1915-1918 (partnership dissolved and store closed, July, 1918; it never reopened)
John W. "J.W." Jackman store (et. seq.; shop established in Columbia by early--and most likely prior to--1900)
J.W. Jackman 1900 or earlier-1909
C.R. Hutchison 1909-1919
Hutchison & (Allen DeGraffenried "A.D.") Patteson 1919-Jan.1922
C.R. Hutchison 1922- (later, Hutchison & Sons)
The firm of Hutchison & Patteson operated for less than four months after the Great Conflagration of September 1921. Patteson withdrew from the partnership in January 1922, and Mr. Hutchison, with a new stock of goods, removed the business from temporary quarters to the Russell & Co. (later Lerman's) building in late March,1922.

The same issue of the News (October 27, 1909) in which the announcement of Mr. Hutchison's purchase of the J.W. Jackman business appeared also carried a newsletter from the Pell Ham (sic) community. The items from that scenic spot included a note stating "We regret very much to give up Mr. Charley Hutchison and family from our neighborhood but we commend them to Columbia as their gain and our loss." The December 8, 1909 edition informed readers via a brief front page article that "C.R. Hutchison and family have moved to Columbia, and are occupying a cottage on Pea Ridge, near the residence of Dr. O.S. Dunbar."

Compiled by JIM, abroad, basking in the sunny, balmy clime in territory of beautiful Kenyon (It's not in Africa) College, over in Ohio.
