He had lived on the same place for 60 years and was the first man to bring barbed wire into the Cove Creek community in Coryell County. Among his possessions was a land grant signed by Sam Houston while governor or Texas.

Regardless of the size of the company it maintains the individuality of the town where located and it takes pride in boosting and going its part for the betterment of the city and the community.
