Notes:
Frank Wesley McIntosh (b. Mar 22, 1886, d. Jan 4, 1958) was a pharmacist in Farmville, VA1. Frank's wife was named "Irving"1,2.
I've found 4 different drugstores in Farmville that had 'McIntosh' in the name. I'm not sure if they all referred to Frank W. - the only 2 I'm sure included him were 'Garland & McIntosh' and "McIntosh's Drug Store'.
  McIntosh's Drug Store
I have a bottle that says this company was at 238 Main Street. I see this business listed in 1911 and 1917 directories of Farmville pharmacies.
  Garland & McIntosh
I see this company listed in 1913,1917 & 1921 directories of Farmville pharmacies. The entry in the 1921 directory has "F.W.McIntyre" in parenthesis. One of the paper items below say this was "The Rexall store".
  McIntosh & Canada
I have a receipt below that says this company was at 236 Main Street. It has dates of 1926 and 1928 on it. I've seen a labeled bottle on eBay that listed a company that was simply called "Canada Drug Co" at 236 Main Street.
  McIntosh & Sanford
I have an embossed bottle that says both "White Drug Co" and "McIntosh & Sanford" on it, so those 2 stores were somehow connected. See White Drug Co.
