Many local folks remember the DeBeer & Ellinger General Merchandise Store during the teens and twenties. At one time the U.S. Post Office was in the back part of the store with Mr. Ellinger as postmaster and Peter DeBeer, John's father, the assistant Post Master. In those days a nickle would buy a sizable sack of candy and we kids loved to stop in the store after school hours with our nickle in hand.
