Notes:
John E. McClaugherty (born c.18892) started a drug store in Roanoke VA about 1922. In 1935, he had 3 drug stores in Roanoke. My access to Roanoke City directories is limited to a handful of years, so the years of operation of his drug stores listed above are approximate1.

There was another McClaugherty's Drug Store at 1005 Williamson Road, starting about 1939. It was run by Walter Irvin McClaugherty1. I don't know if he was related to John E. McClaugherty or not.
