Clarks grocers, Hopkinsville Christian Co Ky, 1880s-1950s

Post by ClarksHopkinsville » 26 Dec 2020 11:37

I am looking for any info, photos, antiques, memorabilia, anything related to my ancestors grocery stores in Christian Co Ky, specifically the Crofton and Hopkinsville towns from the late 1800s to around 1950s. Stores names/owners I know of are: Geo. M. Clark (George), E.B. Clark, Clark & Johnson (or vise versa), C.R. Clark & Company (Claude Rasco Clark), and Cliff’s Grocery (Clifford Clark). They operated around 8-10 locations that I know of between the brothers and cousins. Newspapers of that time were full of their ads which I have collected. My goal is to find someone knowledgeable about their “chain” of stores and/or collectors of antiques from early Kentucky grocery stores goods, fixtures, commemorative plates, etc. Thank you in advance!!!!
