The following year, the store was moved across the street to a new building which also housed a hardware store. At this time, Earl Wells became a partner in the general store. There three general stores in Ireton.

Henry W. Hyink became a member of the school board and the Masons. Mrs. Hyink joined the Eastern Star and the Women’s Relief Corps.

In 1918, Mr. Hyink decided that he would much rather be a photographer for which he was formally trained so he moved his family to Kansas where he purchased a studio. He continued in this business until his death 48 years later. Survivors are Geraldine Hyink and Harriett Hyink Boltz.
