Reuben W. Sypher came to Fort Des Moines from Indiana , in September, 1846. His first employment was to sell goods at the trading post of Phelps & Co. The cabin occupied by the sutler while the soldiers were here, was located near where the Rock Island passenger depot now stands. B. T. Hoxie sold goods at this cabin in 1847. He sold out to Benjamin Coffeen; and but a short time afterwards, Mr. Sypher sold goods at the same place.
