In city directories around 1906 to 1910 for Independency, Jackson, Missouri, what does the abbreviation "confy" stand for?

1 Answer 1


I found one directory for 1906 where the listing of companies in the rear listed the same address for which the abbreviation confy was used under Confectionary.

Ancestry.com. U.S. City Directories, 1821-1989 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Ancestry.com Operations, Inc., 2011.

See pages 934 and 938 of the images of the directory for Confectionary owned by Foster at 114 North Liberty Street.
