    According to our president, Denise Flickinger, “There was a clothing store called Rubins. Several others also. There was the Woodie and also one called the Warren, which may have been one and the same over time. Dixon’s was the bakery , but several others also existed. But in my time I only remember Dixon’s. That would be the 60s.”

    Thomas and Elizabeth Reese (Rees) that came in about 1860. I see occupation as “keeping grocery store” in an 1880 census. Do you have any record. My great grandmother was Jennie Reese born in Apollo about 1876. Do you have any birth records or could lead me to here exact date of birth. Thank you so much! Trying to piece my family history together. Please contact me at smrollins@earthlink.net
    Thank you – Maryann

    I’m looking for where I can find information on the company AS Wolfe Photography that was located in Apollo. I recently came into photos and want to research them.
