History

What's in a Name?

image43

   The Mayberry family  is proud of their hometown, township where they reside (Farmers Creek)  and their farming roots.   Jim & Sue's children, Sarah, Thomas, & Logan, are the 8th generation of the Mayberry family  to have resided in Farmers Creek Township

Who's Mac?

image44

 In 1884, Owen McCaffrey, a native of Buffalo, New York, opened a wholesale and retail tobacco store in partnership with Frank Doubrawa. The business was located on the east side of Main Street. In 1886 they parted ways, and McCaffrey moved to the west side of the street and set up as a independent cigar manufacturer and jobber.  The tobacconists' trade mark, a seven foot wooden Indian, stood on the sidewalk guarding, as it were, the firm's rising fortunes.  

     McCaffrey was a jobber for Humos cigars and distributed as many as 100,000 a week.         The Maquoketa Cigar was manufactured by McCaffrey. Its popularity spread well beyond 

this area and eventually manufacturing in Maquoketa had to be discontinued through lack of space. 

     A tobacco company in Binghamton, N.Y., took over;   sales continued to grow and the Maquoketa cigar became the finest advertising medium this city has ever had.

 The McCaffrey Cigar Company opened stores in Mason City, Sioux City, and DesMoines.    

Indian in the River

image45

One Halloween some pranksters took the old wooden Indian away. No one saw them. The workers found it in the river just north of town. They fished out the Indian , cleaned  and  returned  it to the sidewalk only to have it taken again.  This time the workers were fed up and didn't spend  as much time looking for it . McCaffrey's  Indian  was never found. Shortly after this incident, in the spring of 1923, McCaffrey died and the business just folded up.  A former worker said, "You know what they say about coming events casting their shadows before them?"
