Notes for H
The home into which she (Inez) was born was a log cabin that had been added onto and resultantly hidden by the addition. The original structure was established by her great grandfather, Archibald McGrew in 1851, when he came from Pennsylvania as a minister of the Church of God doing mission work on the frontier. He brought with him a son and a daughter of his extended family. His daughter, Hester, married Phillip Snyder and ultimately inherited the home place.

Phillip Snyder was called to serve in the Civil War and was assigned to Sherman's forces. Phillip was killed in the Battle of Resaca in north west Georgia. After this event Henry H. Snyder was born as a "Civil War Baby" in 1864.

Hester married a second time to John Crow and though this union there were born 7 more children. It most likely was at this time that the original log cabin was expanded.

Henry sometimes called "Henny", ultimately inherited the home place and married Emma Schafer April 16, 1891. Emma's family story came about when John Schafer came as a immigrant from Germany to Muscatine in 1854. From
here he enlisted in the Union Army in 1862 and served three years in the Civil War. Upon return, he married Anna Hucke? In 1865.

Anna was also a recent immigrant from Germany. The newly married couple went west to Otoe County, Nebraska where their seven children were born. They returned to Muscatine - Louisa county area where the children grew up and
established themselves.

Notes for J
James Martin Buster, so named for a friend of his father's, was the son of Simon Phillip and Nancy Helen (McCleary) Buster, born July 29, 1877, on a farm south of Grandview, which is now owned by Arthur O'Neal. The house was about where the present garage now stands.

>From ages 7-9, J.M. Buster lived with his aunt and uncle, Bascom and Ann (McCleary) Chamberlain on the McCleary homestead in the red brick house about a mile north and east of the Buster home. They cared for the McCleary parents, Abram and Sarah (Trimble) until they died. The Chamberlains had no children of their own, but helped various needy people. Uncle Bass had been a school teacher and Aunt Ann had some education beyond a country school. Small Jimmie learned much in those two years with them, had many toys, etc., but was a bit lonesome and his brothers finally persuaded him to come home.

His mother suffered from gall stones with numerous attacks of severe pain. The family moved to Grandview into the house on Main Street, later occupied by the Sherman Jackson family. Here Dr. E.H. King of Muscatine operated on Mrs. Buster to relieve her trouble, but she died soon after.

His father was now operating a small general store and meat market in a frame building on the corner where the bank building was later put up. He also carried mail to Letts as there was no railroad through Grandview at that time.

When the family first moved to town, J.M. Buster started to school in the 8th grade but was not allowed to finish as his father took him out to work in the store,--he being a dependable boy. He was promised that if he would work until he was of age, he would be given an opportunity to fulfill his ambition to study law. But this promise was never kept.

An older brother, John (Bush) learned meat cutting so as to take care of that department of the store. Hogs were sometimes slaughtered in the lot back of the store. J.M. Buster learned meat cutting and running a country store in the years that followed. It was his introduction to the business world. After the store was sold to the Sweitzer family he worked on farms in the Grandview and Wapello areas, also in Peter Mueller's store.

For several years he was associated with Lewis Lieberknecht in the livestock and grain business, built the grain elevator in Grandview and was assisted by Harry Stineman in its operation for a time.

About 1920 the Farmer's Union became jealous of his business success and demanded that he sell them his elevator, threatening to put up another one to compete if he refused to sell. So it was sold to them, but he went on shipping grain and livestock from Grandview as long as the railroad was in operation. The Depression soon brought financial disaster to the Farmer's Union, the railroad ceased to operate and the elevator was torn down, they taking the loss rather than J.M. Buster.
