Philip “Phil” McQuiston, one of most well-known residents of Chewton, operated a grocery and dry goods store on Henry Street for many years. He helped organize – and served as a charter member of – the Chewton Christian Church in 1876. I found an article that indicates he sold his store in August 1892 to “Charles Coulter and Mr. Garway,” but I know McQuiston was still in business as late as 1906. Perhaps he opened a newer building? In 1902 he had one of several such stores in Chewton with others being operated by Simon Federkovich, Hanna Coulter, and Jacob Shallenberger. McQuiston passed away in September 1928 at the age of eighty-three and was laid to rest in Newport Cemetery. (c1900) (Photo courtesy of Tammy Kelly Mazzant) Full Size
