Description

A newspaper article about R. H. Noegel's Rexall Drug Store in Oviedo, Florida. The article also briefly describes the story behind the naming of the town of Oviedo. Andrew Aulin, Sr. (1843-1918), the Swede credited with naming Oviedo, immigrated to the area in 1870 and, in 1879, he was appointed the postmaster of the area formerly called the Lake Jesup Settlement. Aulin also founded the local Ionic Lodge, which was the predecessor to the Masonic Lodge. Aulin was married to Emma Leonora Lawton Aulin (1853-1907) and had five children: Theodore Aulin (1874-1907), Willie Aulin, Martha Lenora Aulin (b. 1844), Mary HAnnah Aulin (1887-1974), and Andrew Aulin, Jr. (1893-1964).
