A. Z. Scrivens Store, Sheakleyville
Andral Zonor Scrivens, Justice of the Peace for 18 years in Sheakleyville, Mercer County, PA, operated the general store from about 1912-1928. He lived next door to the store.
Scrivens bought the store from T. B. Marsteller about 1912, who had operated a grocery business. Kit Dean and several others also conducted business in this store.
George Washington Moyer, who belonged to the
Masonic order, had a blacksmith shop and his brothers
Daniel and William had a carriage shop in the Scrivens Store. Daniel and
William made carriages in the store while George did the blacksmith work, The
carriage shop was called the "Carriage Paint shop", and was built about 1852 or
earlier. Family tradition says that it is supposed that William was the one who
had the shop built. He later went to Bloomington, Illinois, invested in land,
had a grain elevator, and other lines of mercantile business.
