I ran across a list that I had made many years ago from an old ledger which has been in our family for as long as I can remember. My dad said
that his g-grandfather, Erasmus Alley, owned a mercantile store somewhere in Marion County and that the ledger was a listing of items sold to his customers.
For many years, the ledger was a "scrapbook" that my g-grandmother kept. Eventually, the things she had pasted in it with flour water became crispy and started falling away. That's when I discovered all these names.

From Goodspeed----"He afterward gave this place to his son, Alex, and moved to South Pittsburg, bought a farm near there, and in connection with his farm work, operated a mercantile business in the city and also a ferry across the Tennessee River
