My gg-gf Caius C Lord had a letterhead on most of his correspondence. It was as follows: "Office of Lord Bros. dealers in Boots & Shoes, Groceries, Etc. South Side Broadway, Valley Falls, KS." Then latter it was changed to Lord & Whedon, C.C. Lord & E.F. Whedon, Manufactures of and dealers in Boots, Shoes, Gaiters, Hats, Caps, Gloves, Hosiery, Etc. Valley Falls, KS." I don't know anything about this Whedon, but thought someone might be interested. I put a copy of the trade mark on this web link..
