  • Notes 
    • St. Paul is situated upon Sections 4 and 5, Township 13 north, Range 26 west, originally entered by Fielding SALYER and William ADE. The former came from Floyd Co., Kentucky. in 1849. ADE subsequently removed to Texas, and at the time when the town was first thought of, J. P. SALYER was the sole owner of the site. In the spring of 1887 when it was decided to extend the Fayetteville branch of the St. Louis and San Francisco Railway, this farm was noticed with favor by the projectors of the road as its terminus. The river at this point pursues its course at the base of the hills on the south, thus leaving a wide and sloping area, well situated for the purpose. The railroad was opened to the town of Powell, eight miles distant, July 15, 1887. At that time, the house of Mr. SALYER was the only dwelling in the place. A. B. LEWIS build a box shanty in June 1887, and opened the first store. The first house was built by Charles PIERCE in the same month, and was also occupied as a store building. July 20, 1887, J. P. SALYER began business, and G. H. DAVIS a little earlier. The first year of its history finds St. Paul provided with more than a dozen places of business, as follows: J. P. SALYERS groceries and hardware, etc... After Fielding killed his brother-in-law, Wiley MORGAN, he fled to Arkansas. QUESTION: Could Margaret ACUFF and Margaret be the same person? Both have the same death date.
