P.T. Twinting

This week one of the oldest, best and most popular business houses in our city changed hands, that of Mr. P.T. Twinting, on North Main Street, Mr. Twinting having sold his entire establishment to Messrs. Hackney & Speers, formerly of Fairfield. Mr. Twinting is one of the oldest business men in our city, having removed from Madison, Indiana, to Mt. Pleasant, Nov. 8th, 1861. He spent eight years on what is known as the James Forbes farm, two miles south of the city. In 1869, Mr. Twinting bought the grocery business of Geo. B. O’Kell, & Co., formerly the property of E. Hill, on the south side of the square, where he remained until 1872, when he purchased the building on North Main Street, which he has occupied ever since, making twenty-one years in this building. Mr. Twinting has hosts of friends in this city and county who will be sorry to lose him as a business man, but all know he has been for several years in very poor health and has been compelled to give up at last. Mr. Twinting will be at his old stand for several weeks introducing the new proprietors to his many friends, and he will be pleased to have all call and see him, and as he will have plenty of time now, have a pleasant, old-fashioned chat. If the new firm will only follow the directions of Mr. Twinting, they need have no fears of success. Messrs. Hackney & Speers are among the best business men of Fairfield, Mr. Hackney having just closed a long term as county auditor, shows the high esteem in which they are held in Jefferson County.
