(Andrew Jackson) Draughon who was founder of Merchant's Bank. This is the address listed in his obituary in 1938, but doesn't look like a "house".

Old city directories confirm that the original home was likely demolished around the same time, as it changes from residential listings to commercial listings for this address. I show AJ working at Draughan-Ferrell, a produce company, around 1913. There were also other Draughan family members living at 1013 West Main Street according to records. By the 1920s I show AJ then working in real estate. Not much to go by though as far as the original house.

Claude N May was the company that always painted when my Grandfather Wyche Horton decided to freshen up Belk Leggett. Claude N. May was a close friend of my Grandfather and i met him many times in my youth. Add new comment Log in or register to post comments.
