Aft 1890, John Hauser Denniston may have gained a teaching certificate, along with dau Carrie from UIU.  Both returned to Fond du Lac Co, WI to live with s/law merchant John (Ella Denniston) Loebs. 

Warren C. Denniston was very active in the Knights of Pythins, with the meeting room over the Denniston Store.

1890May30, Warren C. Denniston is probably seeing the wild sights at Denver.CO, this week.

1890Aug01, Warren Denniston has bone to Colorado to handle drugs.

1893Jan06, Warren Denniston & wife went to West Union on Xmas, and their young child became so chilled that it has since been quite sick.

1893Feb03, Warren C. Denniston has bargained for the Gaynor stock of goods, possession to be given about March 1.  this will bring into the list of business men in Fayette a young man of good character and habits.

1893July21, New hats at Denniston's, latest fall styles.  Have you seen those new Pongees at Denniston's.

1893Sep08, Geo. Hill & family and Warren Denniston & family are not occupants of the Phoenix House.  A new line of stamped linens at Denniston's.  Denniston is closing out his clothing at cost.

1893Oct13, So many people have gone to Chicago (product exposition for merchants) this past week we are unable to procure the names of half of them.  Warren Denniston, John Graf and H.C. Childs went the latter part of the week.  It looks as though about everybody in Fayette is determined to see the Great Exposition.

1893Nov24, See those new cloaks at Denniston's, for ladies, misses and children.  New neckwear at Denniston's.

1893Dec07, Call at Denniston's and see what he can show you.  Christmas is coming.  You may want something nice in handkerchiefs, or you may want some of the delicate shades of satins or velvets for fancy work or some of those stamped linens to work for your friends.  Or you may want one of those beautiful muffs.

1894Feb08, Girl's caps, new and cheap, at Denniston's.  Do not buy a hat until you have seen those new ones at Denniston's.  Denniston has a large stock of new hats, all the latest spring shapes.

1894May10, Warren C. Denniston has broken ground this week for his new residence of south King Street, (lots 7&8, bk 10, NE corner of King & Madison, bz/2012) we believe it is called.

1894May24, By some means not yet deciphered a fire started in Denniston's show window at a late hour Sat. night, and but for the fact that several people were roaming about to see how long the street lamps were going to give light, a serious burnout would have resulted.  A forced entrance was made and the hats, shirts and neckties were "put out."  Whether the fire started from a Rochester lamp or a Utica cigar, is what puzzles the detectives.

1894May31, The foundation for the Denniston's residence is completed (NE corner of King & Madison St's)  Home would be torn down in 2012.

1894June07, Warren C. Denniston has a large residence on its foundation and pretty well along toward being enclosed.  It will be a fine addition to that part of town.  We verily believe no town the size of this in Iowa can show a larger number of fine residence than this.  Coxeyism hasn't much influence here.

1894July05, Butterick patterns at Denniston's.

1894Oct18, Miss Carrie Carpenter is again acting as clerk for W.C. Denniston at Denniston's Dry Goods.

1895Mar07, Denniston & Graham (son) have just received a very large line of fine dress goods cut in patterns.  You will make a mistake if you buy a dress before seeing those in patterns.  There is nothing nicer in the market in spring dress goods than those pattern goods.  They are one pattern and you do not have a dress just like your neighbor's.

1895Apr25, Wanted, a girl to do housework.  W.C. Denniston.  We are getting those new Wool & Silk & Wool mixtures every day, cut one pattern in a piece.

1895May09, The residence of Geo. Denniston in Crrokston.MN, was burned and his aged parents lost their lives in the flames (not the Denniston's of Fayette).

1895May23, Those silk stripe crepons at Denniston & Graham's are beautiful good and only 25c per yard.  If you buy a dress of any kind without looking at Denniston & Graham's, you fail to see the best and most stylish line in town.  China silks from 25c a yard upward.

1895July18, Oxford Mirror:  Miss Beulah Denniston returned to Fayette with her aunts, Mrs. Lane & Mrs. Shoemaker, and will remain there for a time.  The death of Mrs. A.F. Denniston, which had been expected for some time, took place at 2am, July 4, 1895.  In 1888 she joined the M.E. Church at this place.  Mrs. Ann Eliza Shoemaker Denniston was born in Pine Island, MN, Apr 11, 1961, and died in Oxford Junction, Thur, July 4, 1895, of consumption (TB).  (In 1863) two yrs after her birth the family moved to Strawberry Point, Clayton.Co.IA, where they lived eight years (until abt 1871), then moved to Fayette.IA.  She came to Oxford Junction (Iowa) in 1881 and married A.F. Denniston, Apr 4, 1882.  Three children were born;  Frank W., Ward F., & Beulah A.  She is survived by husband & three children, her mother, two brothers & two sisters.  Presnet were Mrs. Jane Shoemaker, her mother; sister, Mrs. Clara Lane; s/law Mrs. Cora Shoemaker; Wm. Denniston, wf & dau Nettie of Maquoketa.

1895July18, Mrs. Graham of West Union, came down to the Denniston home Monday to look after her grandchildren while the parents were in Minneapolis.

1897Jan14, Denniston & Graham (son), headquarters for dress good, underwear, hosiery, gloves, mittens.  All jackets, capes, cloaks go at wholesale cost.  We are at The Old Stand.

1897Dec16,  Warren C. Denniston has begun a clearing sale on cloaks, capes and jackets.  Every garment will be offered at actual wholesale cost.   Now is the time to buy a cape or jacket for you wife or daughter a Christmas present.  Denniston has the largest stock of muffs in town, ranging from 50c to $4.50.  In the dress goods department we always lead.  A good dress makes a nice Christmas present.  Holiday handkerchiefs in great variety from 1c up.  go to Denniston's for shoes, felts, rubbers, and overshoes.

1899May25,  New springs goods at Denniton's.  We are showing a very handsome line of those new Covert Cloths that are so popular for spring suits.  they are all in dress patterns, one of a kind.  We show a very handsome black poplin; also the French Mohair's in the new weave.  We have a new line of dress trimmings for all the colors and blacks.  See out assortment of Fancy and plain silks, plaids, broken checks, plain tafetas and Chinas.  Do you want to make a shirt or boy's waist that you know will not face, and will wear until you are tired of it?  then get some of our Scotch Cheviot. We have a good line of shoes for the spring trade for men, boys, ladies and children.  You should try our Russian colt skin shoe; it wears like iron.  We show some very fine narrow-last shoes for ladies.  In fact see us for the lowest prices on Good Goods.  W. C. Denniston, proprietor.

1908Nov05,  Auto into the Ditch.  W.C. Denniston's car plunged over the bank between the bridges yesterday.  Three ladies received injuries.  Mrs. E.N. Humiston suffered two broken ribs, cuts & bruises.  A serious auto accident occured.  W.C. Denniston's heavy Buick car,  containing Mrs. Wm Sholl of Des Moines, Mrs. E.N. Humiston, Mrs. H.S. Canfield, little florence Humiston and Mr. Dennsiton plunged off the embankment between the two bridges at the end of Main.St, Fayette.IA.  Mrs. Humiston had two ribs broken near the spine, some severe bruises and cuts about the head.  Mrs. Canfield was bruised and Mrs. Sholl about the shoulder blade.  Mr. Denniston and Florence Humiston were practically unhurt.  Mr. Denniston had turned the car to the right side fo the road to pass Geo. Murphy's dray.  Suddenly the car swerved into the frail wooden railing, crashed through it and began to descend the bank, the drop being about 15ft.  About half way down there is a stone wall, built to retain the bank, and when the machine reached this it turned over, and struck at the foot of the slope, the deriver going headlong into the brush.  The ladies were all thrown out at the wall and were unconscious when reached.  The car made a complete revolution and landed right side up.  The injured women were cared for immediately, Mrs. Humiston being taken home and the others to the hotel.  The auto was badly broken up, tow wheels, front lamps and box receiving the worst.  The engine was practically unhurt. Mrs. Sholl's husband, a conductor on the Great Western from Des Moines to Oelwein was telegramed.  The party was taking a pleasure jaunt, it was Mrs. Humiston's first auto ride.  The exact cause of the wreck will never be known as it happened so quickly.  Mr. Denniston has never had any accidents with his care before and is known as one of the most careful drivers.  The wheels may have struck against a rough spot in the road, causing the swerving, the road being narrow.  Mr. Denniston had shut off the power, so the car was running slowly when it went over the bank.  This morning the injured were all doing as well as can be expected.

1909May,  Graham Denniston graduated from Fayette High School.  Would attend UIU, worked father's store, became a career dry good merchant in Fayette and Oelwein.
