Historicial Development: The sawmill of J. J. Shaddi was listed in the 1905 but not the 1907 edition of the Reference Book of the Lumbermen's Credit Association. He was listed at Marietta in 1907. Webb reported that the community of Naples, settled in 1879, was known as Belden until 1898. Located in the northeastern part of the county, Naples long served as a shipping station on the Cotton Belt.
