1912 Crawfordsville Fish and Meat Market

William Sinkey ?, Fruits ?, Clarence Gilkey ?
The Central Fish and Meat Market of Sinkey and Gilkey is shown here and was located at 117 South Washington Street in Crawfordsville. Both of these men had been in business several years, but in 1912 they were in business together. William H. Sinkey (Mary Holloway) died in 1912, so the business name changed after this time. Sinkey had been in business in Crawfordsville for over 64 years and worked for or with O.W. Williams; Weil & Sons; T.E. Weil & Co., and Sinkey & Miller. Clarence Gilkey married Grace Fruits (daughter of Noah and Susan Lenora Lewis Fruits). The boy in the middle is possibly Grace's brother (son of Noah and Susan Fruits).
