Historicial Development: J. T. Hall, who had earlier sold a mill in the area to W. K. Menefee in 1919, was selling lumber from the Hickory Jones sawmill to Chicago Lumber and Coal Company. County records locate the mill three miles north of Pollok and five miles east of Wells, which would place the mill very close to Dan Branch of Bowman Creek.
