History by Gil Hoffman:

Campen & Grady was a partnership composed of W. T. Campen and J. S. Grady. In April 1917 the partners bought several tracts of pine timber in Scott and Leake counties lying about a mile west of the town of Sebastopol. The following month the company bought the complete sawmill plant and logging equipment of W. M. Carter, at Eucutta, MS, and moved the plant to Sebastopol where it was reassembled. The mill had a cutting capacity of 30,000 feet per day.
