This is my great grand father's store and I have a clothe hanging in my living room about the store.

Thanks for the information, we have updated the record accordingly.

This store was owned by my grandfather, Frank Wilson.  Please note his name was not King; he just called himself the "king clothier".  You have 2 post cards in your archive incorrectly calling him "Frank Wilson King, Clothier".    He was married to Verda Mae Waldrop from Hendersonville, NC, and they lived on West 5th Street next door to the E. B. Ficklens and raised a large family.  My mother, who is still living and will be 96 in March 2011, is the last survivor of their 7 children.
