Note

     Merchants and Planter Bank was Irving's first bank.  It opened in 1906 and was renamed Irving State Bank in 1908. In the 1960s, the name was changed again to Irving Bank & Trust. The donor, Raymond Story, is the son of W. C. Story, who owned the receipts.  Mr. Story notes that the receipt from Parlin and Olendorff was for purchase of a gas engine used to operate a saw for custom-cut firewood.
