Schram's Store

It is possible that the Creutzburgs are linked to the Schrams of Barton. Henry's mother was a Schramm, and perhaps a family connection with the Schram's led the Creutzburgs to settle in Barton. Casper and Henry Schramm each were involved in land transactions with John Creutzburg and his wife between 1858 and 1864. According to Sue Schram Loar, her family has a long history in the area.

At one time, Miss Winnie Comer operated a millinery shop in the Schram's store. She later relocated to Sam Bradley's large combination Grocery/Mercantile store also on North Railroad. Between these two locations, but not photographed is Boal's Funeral Home. It is possibly the site of Dave Boal's grocery store on "Main Street." Dave also owned a huge building on Eutaw, where he stored caskets and rough boxes.
