Man looking for information on family medicine solution

   The pictures attached were relatives of Jason Robert. Jason is a descendant of Benjamin Daniel Johnson near the Summertown area between the years of 1876 and 1940.

   Benjamin owned a trademarked solution for stomach ache and heartburn that was deemed successful at his time of death. His daughter, Bessie, continued to mix up the solution and sell from her house. The ingredients were a secret and the solution was sold in local pharmacies until the late 1900s.

   If anyone knows the names of the attached pictures, a bottle with similar markings of the picture below, or knows the ingredients, please contact Missy Elder at 478-763-3631.
