Historicial Development: Kindred & McNair first appeared in the Reference Book of the Lumbermen's Credit Association, January 1907, as owning a sawmill at Garrison in Nacogdoches County. They, apparently, had moved the mill to San Augustine County sometime later, for in June 1909 they mortgaged $700 with H. B. Walling for a sawmill consisting of an Adams [Ames?] boiler, one 11-inch by 14-inch Adams steam engine, a 3-saw Curtis edger, a 2-saw 20-foot trimmer, a 24-inch cutoff saw, a 56-inch sawmill with a rope feed carriage, two 56-inch circular saws, two log wagons, a blacksmith shop, all located in San Augustine County. The county taxed the firm on product and boilers in 1910.
