    Notes 
    • In the 1860's a similar establishment (a kind of inn at a stagecoach stop) was located out in what we call Yampertown or Twin Road, about five miles east of Guin. A Mr. Franks (Samuel) owned this establishment and it was often frequented by drovers taking their cattle, horses, and sheep to markets down south. An amusing story comes from this stop. It is told that a drove of cattle on the way to market from Tennessee stopped here to spend the night. One of the drovers was a twelve year old boy by the name of Jones who was attracted to one of the pretty daughters of Mr. Franks. Jones went on to the market and returned to Tennessee. A few years later, however, he came back to marry one of the girls - Mrs. Sylvester S. Thompson of Guin being one of their granddaughters. Mr. Jones became a leading citizen of this area as he served as a state representative at one period of time.
