“J.C. Roy, late of Minden, will tomorrow open a bankrupt stock of dry goods, clothing and hats and caps, one door south of Mr. W.T. Junkin’s” [FFG 27 May 1892; 4]. The business, opposite the Post Office, was in operation until early the next year. In June, Roy purchased the restaurant owned by W.W. Blott [FFG 3 Jun 1892; 4], and for some months his wife may have run a grocery alongside the restaurant as her name appears in D&B. Roy later (January 1893) sold the restaurant to Peter Deyman [FFG 3 Feb 1893; 4]; He then left for Bobcaygeon, “where he has been running a store for some weeks past, and where he thinks the prospects of success are better than they are here. Part of his stock of dry goods and clothing has already been taken to ‘Caygeon and the rest will soon follow…” [FFG 3 Feb 1893; 3].
