Andrew, what happened to you after your wife died? There is no record of your death in Louisana; folks have checked Louisiana state records. There is no record of you going to Boulder, Colorado where your only surviving child, Grace, lived. There is no record of you being buried in the same cemetery as Grace or Dora.

    The largest livery stable between New Orleans and Jackson, Miss., is owned by Mr. A. H. Mott, who entered the livery business here eight years ago. He erected his present commodious stable in 1896, and now has as complete a livery as one may find in a town the size of Hammond. With one of Mr. Mott's turnouts, traveling in and around Hammond becames a pleasure, and the visitor can fully enjoy the fine scenery of this section. Mr. Mott also carries a line of harness, saddlery, wagons and carriages. He is agent for Ward, Kent & Co., box manufacturers, Greenfield, Tenn., and does a large business in fruit and vegetable boxes and crates.
