A look back at Cook’s Drugstore

    Hi, my name is Bob Gilkey and I wanted to read your article about the Chrisman drug store history because an earlier co-owner of the store was named A. E. Schnitker along with a man named Gilkey. I thought I might get some information about the store’s history. When I was a pre-teen, I would spend summers on the Gilkey farms. My grandfather was Ora Gilkey and just down the road was my uncle, Franklin Gilkey’s farm.
    When we went to town, we would always get a soda at the drugstore. So, long story short, I want to fill in some blanks and see if my grandfather or another relative was the Gilkey mentioned.

    I really don’t want to subscribe just to read this one article so I am asking if you could make an exception to your policy.

    Yours truly, Robert Gilkey
