Historicial Development: The existence of the C. B. Counts Lumber Company at Milam, in Sabine County, is documented in an IRS lien against the firm in 1970 for $844. Mrs. Arbie McGraw and Drayton Speights recalled that they knew of C. B. Counts. They remembered that he lived at Geneva, rather than Milam as reported in the IRS lien. He was a trucker that bought and sold to truckers.
