Darden/Eley Advertisement, Suffolk, Virginia, 1878

Copyright 2015, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

The Library of Virginia has some digitized newspapers.  Now and then, I wander over and surf around.

A few years ago, I discovered that they have 4 issues of the publication,  "The Casket", published in Suffolk, Virginia (1878) online.

I found this interesting advertisement.  I have yet to discover who the partners may be.  I descend from both clans, the Dardens and the Eleys.  Most of my research has been in Isle of Wight, Suffolk (was Nansemond), Southampton, and Norfolk Counties.

This particular ad was published in January of 1878.  I see some more snooping going on in my future.  What Darden?  What Eley?
