GRABS Family Burials at the Bryan (Boone) Cemetery

Augustus Grabs and Harvey Griswold were friends. Mr. Grabs eventually owned a store which had been founded by Griswold in the 1820s. Griswold sold the store to Joseph Adams in 1839 and when Adams died in 1845, Augustus Grabs bought the lot for $31.00. The log store building still exists today, less than one mile from the cemetery.
