They didn't stay in Kansas long, because they're back in Taylor County Iowa in 1900, with four kids all born in Iowa.

Mrs. J. C. Masteller was born near Cadiz, Harrison Co., Ohio, April 21, 1853. Her maiden name was Martha Agnes Maxwell. At the age of twelve years, in1865 she with her parents left Ohio and came to Crawfordsville, Iowa which was their home until 1872 in which year the Maxwell family moved to Adams county and settled near Prescott, la.
On April 6, 1876, Miss Martha Maxwell became the wife of Mr. James Curtis Masteller, who was living then in that community between Kent and Prescott, la. In 1901 they moved to Creston, and for the past 14 years they have lived a quiet and happy retired life in their home at 226 Myrtle St., west Creston.
For the past year and more Mrs. Masteller has been in failing health. Last fall a visit was made to Excelsior Springs with the hope of recovery but realizing no benefit they returned home. Her sickness which proved to be Pernicious Anemia, finally worked its course so that after six or eight weeks of serious illness she passed away at 1:30 o’clock Tuesday morning, May 11, 1915, aged 62 years and 20 days.
Mrs. Mastellar was a good woman, loved by all who knew her. In early life she confessed Christ as her Saviour and was a life long member of the Presbyterian church. Many friends of the Adams congregation will remember her devotion to her church in days gone by. While living in Creston, Mrs Mastellar was most faithful in church attendance, a willing and consecrated worker in all things of the Kingdom.
Besides many friends who mourn her loss are her husband, Mr. J. C. Mustellar, one brother, Mr. B. N. Maxwell of Des Moines and Mrs. Sarah E. Anderson of Lenox, Iowa. For these sorrowing ones a host of friends have deepest sympathy.
The funeral services will be held at the United Presbyterian church at 2:30 o'clock this afternoon conducted by the pastor, Rev. J. L. McCreight, and interment will take place at Graceland cemetery. Creston Plain Dealer (May 12.)
