Biographical / Historical

The J. R. Buckwalter Lumber Company was incorporated at Union, Newton County, on February 25, 1909 by J. R. Buckwalter of Union, J. C. Buckwalter of Union, A. I. Buckwalter of Wingate and N. Buckwalter of Wingate with authorized capital stock of $100,000. A double band mill with a cutting capacity of 80,000 feet per day was built at Union, starting operations in 1909. Timber for this mill was located in Newton, Neshoba, Leake and Scott counties and was of the shortleaf variety. The mill was in continuous operation from 1909 until 1940 when it closed down.

Naval Station Norfolk is a United States Navy base in Norfolk, Virginia, that is the headquarters and home port of the U.S. Navy's Fleet Forces Command. The area where the base is located was the site of the original 1907 Jamestown Exposition. In 1915, the Headquarters of the 5th Naval District was established. In April 1917, shortly after the United States entered World War I, a bill was passed for the purchase of the land, and money was set aside in the amount of $1.6 million for the development of the base. The Naval Operating Base (NOB) and other facilities were established. By 1918, there were 34,000 enlisted men at the base.
