Barrett & Dunlap


Columbia, SC


From about 1825 to about 1830, John G. Dunlap (died 1882) and Judah Barrett (died c.1854), relative of South Carolina merchants Isaac (c.1791-1834) and Jacob Barrett (1792-1871), operated Barrett & Dunlap, a general store in Columbia. Until 1827, the store operated in a formal partnership with Charleston general store Isaac Barrett & Co., and Columbia general stores Barrett’s and Judah Barrett & Co. Prior to partnering with Judah Barret, Dunlap worked as an apprentice at Barrett’s with Edwin J. Scott (1803-1884), whose memoir Random Recollections from a Long Life: 1806 to 1876 described that store
