McJimsey - John T.

Source: Crawfordsville Weekly Journal, March 20, 1896

John T. McJimsey, a son of John M. McJimsey, an old pioneer of   this County is succeeding admirably at Vincennes and reflects   credit on the Wingate neighborhood where he was raised. The   following from the Vincennes Sun will interest his many friends   here: "John T. McJimsey, Sr. member of the McJimsey Buggy Co. has   purchased Green's opera house and is now in possession of that   well known and valuable property. The building was erected in   1885 at a cost of $36,000 by William Greene, whose name it has   borne and who has owned it ever since. The price paid by Mr. McJ.   was only $15,000and it is considered a great bargain by competent   judges of the value of such property. The transfer was made by   Charles McCord as trustee for William Greene. Vincennes theater   goers and the public generally are glad to see the property pass   into the hands of Mr. McJ who is an active, enterprising,   up-to-date business man and McJ. opera house as it will now be   known will soon be as popular as it was under the management of   Frank Greene. - kbz
