For a while Lucien L. Bartlett operated a general merchandise store in
Chatfield, Texas, in northeastern Navarro County, near the Trinity River.
Below is an advertisement from The Navarro Express, Corsicana, Tex.,
September 26, 1861, page 1. The Civil War had begun, and
Confederate shipping was hampered by a blockade.
Apparently money was tight but L. L. would extend credit.
