Shady Grove Druggist Moves to Providence

My maternal grandparents, Juriah Simpson (1873-1961) and Jefferson Davis Elder (1862-1940) were married in 1892 in Shady Grove. On March 31, 1896 Mr. Elder bought a drug store in Shady Grove from a Mr. Asher.
In 1910 Mr and Mrs Elder and their five children moved to Providence. Mr. Elder immediately opened a pharmacy in the grocery department of the Providence Department Store.
