History by Gil Hoffman:

The Baur Lumber Company was a partnership composed of Emil Baur, of Eton, Indiana, and George B. Young. In addition to operating a sawmill at Millview, the company operated a planing mill in Hattiesburg, Perry County. The planing mill in Hattiesburg was purchased in a partially burned condition on April 29, 1902, from the Charles & Whitcomb Lumber Company. Both mills and timber in Harrison County were sold to the Latimer-Joyce Lumber Company on May 16, 1904, for $60,000.

The Latimer-Joyce Lumber Company was a partnership composed of Charles F. Latimer and John Joyce, of Ashland, Wisconsin. The Baur mills and timber were sold by them on May 4, 1905 to the Hattiesburg Lumber Company.
