I believe the "Locomotive Park" you are referrring is at Chapman, site of the old W.T. Smith lumber mill, later Union Camp, and today operated under new management. After the war, R.B. McKenzie operated a tie mill at Bolling north of Chapman. This mill employed a great many veterans including my great-great grandfather. McKenzie used narrow guage locomotives to haul the logs to the mill which was located on the main line, a standard guage rail line. My ancestor operated a locomotive. I don't recall any talk of a park at Bolling. The Hawthorne house is at Belleville which was located on the "Furrow Path", an ancient trail that ran from the Federal Road at Burnt Corn past Ft. Crawford at East Brewton and on to Pensacola. I recall the house very well and a friend lived there for several years. During a rash of arson fires, this home and the old Nash-Betts home at Burnt Corn were burned about 15-20 years past.
