have information pertaining to my family The Hookers. My dad,
Fred Hooker was born and raised in the Lafe area. His parents were
Ed and Effie Hooker. John W. Hooker, owner of Hooker's Saw Mill was Ed's
uncle, my great-great uncle. I was able to find several family
members' marriage information as well as the fun 1891 business
advertisement which includes Hooker's Saw Mill. The sawmill was
beside the Helena Branch of the St. Louis-Iron Mountain Railroad and the spot
(I took the attached photo 16 years ago) became a flag-station
known as "Hooker Switch."
