    Cool piece of local history - Trade pocked knife

    Went out for a very brief hunt today with my girls (their attention spans always make hunts very brief) today. First let me say that my 6 year old daughter smoked me with her bounty hunter jr. She found an Oklahoma 5 mil tax token immediately followed by a 37' merc! Silver couldn't even keep her encouraged to keep hunting. Anyhow, I found a couple of 30's wheats and a really cool trade pocket knife. I can't find any info on the insurance company via the "google machine". Can anyone tell me how to search old directories for Denison, TX?

    Thanks for looking!

    Lists a Mrs. J. H. Gardner on page 75. That's the 1915 Tax abstracts for Grayson Co. Texas. As far as the insurance agency, I don't know. Getting a hold of the historical society there would be the best bet. They should have any directories that were published there.
