  • Notes 
    • Moffatt Grocery, was owned by Thomas W. Moffatt (wife Sarah) at 703 White Street, and when he died the city directory states that Robert A. Moffatt took over.

      Sidenote: After Robert's wife died (leaving him with 5 kids) they all moved in with Wallace, who was a very stabilizing influence through a tough time. You'll find them all together in the 1930 census. [4, 8]
