General Store Story Update

In last week’s Lifestyle section story about the country store exhibit at the Brownsburg Museum, one of the photos was of an unidentified girl standing in front of a general store.

After the story appeared, Kathy Carter Ramsey called to inform the newspaper that the girl in the photo was her mother, Peggy Ann Hickman.

The photo, she said, was likely taken when she was 12 or 13 in approximately 1954 and was in front of the Denmark general store in Kerrs Creek. The family, she said, had just moved to the Kerrs Creek area from Big Island. Her mother, Ramsey said, died in 1998.
