“Then there was Ike Bedell about enough can’t be said
 
He ran a grocery store and also buried the dead
 
In times gone by that job was not so nice
 
At that time they didn’t embalm but packed the bodies in ice
 
Across from the Baptist church another butcher shop
 
Owned by the father of Will Sharrott, Walter and Ben
 
There were two stores owned by people whose name were alike
 
They were two clothing stores owned by Levenson’s, Henry andmike
 
When you read of all this past you might think it a dream
 
But it was up on the next corner where Frank Russell madeice-cream
 
The streets were lit by oil which was not so bright
 
They would fill them in the morning and light them atnight.”
 
 
 
Please share any information on these merchants in comments.  Thanks!
