There have been some great articles in near past about finding the origin of the person etc that may be engraved on the side of a vintage pen.


I bought a lovely Sheaffer Loaner with Z-clip from approximately 1928 at the recent Phila Pen Show. The engraving says it was loaned by Elvove Department Store.  I have exhausted Google to learn that the highest concentration of folks with Elvove as their last name is from Kentucy and at around that time, there was a Sarah Elvove who was born in 1908 who was a contributor to the Kentucky Kernel newspaper at that time. That's as deep as I could get. No mention of a department store. 


So I am wondering if there are any Kentucky pen collectors out there who might be able to help be get to the bottom of this!
