John W. Snare bought this general store in Wampum from the White Brothers in 1897. From then on the business was primarily operated by John’s younger brother Edward Snare and his wife Laura (Whitehouse) Snare. Edward and Laura’s daughter Mary later married Plummer Anderson and she subsequently served as a local school teacher and was a member of the Wampum School Board from 1951-1963.
