"The Tickler" on Olden Days #kentuckygenealogy #kentuckypioneers

The Tickler
By Jeannette Holland Austin

the ticklerKentuckians loved their fairs and markets. But it was the auctioneer who originated stock sales on the open square on market-day. Kentucky had its county court days which included legal business at the court house followed by fairs and markets and country gentlemen, wearing their broad-brimmed straw hats, would attend and enjoy socializing with his neighbors. When the prosperous Kentucky farmer arose from his bed each morning, he walked out into the porch, stretched himself, and looked at the sun while he awaited breakfast. On the prescribed county court day, his wife also wished to attend, as well as the children. So away they went, the farmer on horseback or in the family carriage. There were many carriages along the roadway, all going to the fair.
