1880 O’Kelly Store Newspaper Advertisement

Ouachita Telegraph February 20th 1880 Monroe, Louisiana

Henry’s teetotaler niece, Jennie, declared that liquor was never sold at the O’Kelly store. The O’Kelly family was to be admired for our ancestors refusal to make their money dealing in something so vulgar as the sale of spirits. As proven by the advertisement above, there was a bar and the “best brands of Wines, Brandies and Whiskies [were] kept constantly on hand.”
