In the News

From The Mirror, published in Mason County, Kentucky (Washington, August 13th 1799)

Segars for sale. I wish to inform my friends and the public in general, that I have on hand, in the house formerly occupied by Mr. Machir, nearly opposite the Court House, a large quantity of Excellent Segars, which I will sell on the most reasonable terms by retail, and make a considerable allowance to those who purchase by wholesale, to sell again. And also Tallow-Candles, of the best quality may be had as above. Peter Brough.

For my sibs: Peter Brough was our ggg-grandfather on our mother’s side. The Mr. Machir mentioned in the notice was our gggg-uncle, one of the brothers of our ggg-grandmother, Jean Machir Brough.
