Historicial Development: The firm of Hooper & Heath was noted in the Reference Book of the Lumbermen's Credit Association, Chicago, January 1905 but not in the 1906 Southern Industrial and Lumber Review listing nor in the Reference Book of the Lumbermen's Credit Association, January 1907. Perhaps they sold to either A. B. Bennett or R. M. Rand, who were both listed in the latter reference at Lodi.
