 THERE IS AN ERROR IS THE ARTICLE IN THE STAR ABOUT THE BUY OUT OF STORE GOODS.
THE BUYER'S NAME WAS MR. C. W. POYNER, MY GREAT, GREAT UNCLE. HE AND MY GREAT GRANDFATHER, B. P. POYNER OWNED THE POYNER BROTHERS STORE IN NEWTON FOR MANY YEARS.
Please, correct this for history! You can see how the mistake was made.

Thanks, Lynn White
