Name of creator
The Farmers' Commercial Union Ltd. was founded on 15 April 1907 at New Annan, Colchester County, Nova Scotia by three farmers: Alex. M. Swan, George E.R. Miller, and G.A. Wilson, all of Central New Annan. They were also appointed the provisional directors upon the company's founding. The company was established to carry on the business of a storekeeper in all its functions, that is to buy, sell, manufacture, and deal in goods, chattels, wholesale and retail. Members of the company were permitted a thirty day credit at a rate of 1% interest for purchases at the store. The store was managed by John Wilson until 26 May 1926 when the store building was destroyed by fire.
Records were rescued from the late William McCully Nelson's shed on Maple Street, Tatamagouche by Anna Hamilton, North Shore Archives in 1985. Mr. Nelson had been an estate lawyer in Tatamagouche it was thought that he collected numerous items of historical value via his vocation.
