1846 Newspaper Clipping About January Family

From the December 26, 1846 issue of the Maysville Eagle: Business to continue under A.M. January after death of William H. January.

Reads: "The death of William H. January, late of the house of A.M. January & Sons, dissolves the partnership of the late concern. The business will be continued as usual by myself. As my whole time and attention will be given personally to the business of the House, I hope to be able to give entire satisfaction to my numerous kind friends, and the public generally, and solicit a continuance of their patronage. - A.M. January, Maysville, Ky., 10th November, 1846."

A.M. January and his family holds a prominent place in Maysville history. Among many other things, in 1851 January and his partner B. W. Wood purchased the cotton mill and renamed it January & Wood Cotton Mill.
