From the Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), February 10, 1921, page 1:
Dray Business Changes Hands.
George Barrett sold his dray and ice business to Ellis and Leslie Dawson last Friday, giving possession on Monday morning. No one knew a trade was even thought of until the deal had been closed.
Mr. Barrett has rented a half section of land near Dotham in Atchison county, and started moving his household goods yesterday. Arch Paulson, who has been employed at the Jordan hardware store will assist Mr. Barrett in managing the farm.
