Sam Fretwell
In the 1950's Sam Fretwell, along with his wife Odessa, operated the Fieldale Grocery on Marshall Way in Fieldale Virginia. The store was directly across from the Fieldale Community Center and next door to Atkins.

Reader (IP Address: Comment: Samuel L. (Sam) Fretwell and his partner Charles D. McGuire, Sr. purchased the grocery store merchandise from Atkins Brothers in November 1944. In 1948 Mr. McGuire sold his part of the business to Sam. Later, Sam had a new partner, Howard "Popeye" Joyce. If anyone knows the date that Sam and Popeye became partners, please let Elva know or poste it on this site. Hope you enjoyed this little bit of history. Mary Alice
