History by Gil Hoffman:

On November 7, 1893, J. R. Hinton bought 280 acres of timber from Ackenhausen Brothers, about three to four miles west of the Ackenhausen sawmill. At that time Hinton probably took over logging for Ackenhausen Brothers. By April 1895, he and C. Ackenhausen had formed a partnership known as "C. Ackenhausen & Company." Available records indicate that they took over operation of the mill of Ackenhausen Brothers. In April 1895 the partners built a logging railroad to log the Ackenhausen mill.
