Detailed History

The 1950 census lists Kate L. Wiley as a 69 year-old widow living in the 600 block of South Main Street. Her son David, 40, lives in the household, as do 4 roomers. All members of the household were born in Virginia. Two of the boarders are elementary school teachers and two work in the construction field boring wells. 

The 1946 issue of the Green Book lists this business as "Wiley's," without Mrs. Wiley's first name.
