Administrative History

On February 7, 1884, three brothers established a partnership to run a lumber business. Isaac Columbus Enochs (1852-1919), James Luther Enochs (1854-1933) and Philip Henry Enochs were born on a farm near Crystal Springs in Copiah County, on which a small sawmill was built by their father, John Fletcher Enochs. Isaac Enochs built a tramway from the mill to the nearby Illinois Central Railroad. He moved to Pike County, Mississippi, in 1880 and operated a saw mill between Magnolia and McComb as well as buying tracts of pine timberland. Isaac and his brothers founded the Enochs Brothers firm to buy land and timber, build saw and planing mills, and a narrow gauge railroad, in the long leaf yellow pine forests of south Mississippi. They also acquired land in Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas. In 1905 the brothers became involved with the Great Southern Lumber Company of Bogalusa, Louisiana, which had extensive interests in both Louisiana and Mississippi, and constructed the New Orleans and Great Northern Railroad.

Philip Enochs became president of the Fernwood Lumber Company in 1884, which ran the large mill in the company town of Fernwood, Mississippi. Isaac Enochs, as president of the partnership, moved to Jackson, Mississippi in 1888, where the brothers established a lumber yard and a plant manufacturing windows and doors, and owned the Edwards Hotel in the city. To service their logging operation in southern Mississippi, the brothers built a railroad, which extended from Fernwood to Tylertown by 1906. In that year it was chartered as a common carrier under the name of the Fernwood and Gulf Railroad Company, with Isaac Enochs as president and Philip as vice-president and secretary. The line was intended to reach Gulfport eventually, and in 1910 an extension was made to Kokomo, Mississippi, where the lumber company had a large naval stores plant and a logging operation. On land where the trees had been removed near Fernwood, the Enochs brothers began farming and raised pure-bred cattle and hogs to promote settlement of their cutover lands. Enochs Farms was established in 1914, with younger brother Fletcher B. Enochs as general manager, but it was sold in 1920. Other tracts were subdivided and sold for farming, and lots were sold for housing along the railroad in Tylertown, Kokomo and Knoxo, Mississippi.

The Enochs Brothers partnership dissolved on July 1, 1913 after pressure from the Interstate Commerce Commission to legally separate the lumber operation from the railroad. Philip Enochs continued as president of the Fernwood Lumber Company until it went out of business in the late 1920s after the last trees were cut. Isaac Enochs remained president of the railroad company until 1914 when he was succeeded by Fletcher Enochs, who served until 1923. By 1920 another extension of the line was made to Foxworth and trackage rights were acquired from the New Orleans and Great Northern Railroad to Columbia, which became the terminus of the railroad; a total length of 44 miles. On April 12, 1920 the company’s name was changed to the Fernwood, Columbia and Gulf Railroad (FC&GRR). Arthur F. Wortman, James Enoch’s son-in-law was president of the railroad company until 1931 and moved its offices to Tylertown. Philip H. Enochs, Jr., succeeded him, with his brother-in-law, Lamar Ramsay, as vice-president, and, on Philip’s death in 1954, his son Iddo Lampton Enochs became the last president of the railroad companies.

The F&GRR did well both in freight and passenger numbers in the 1920s but the depression hit the company hard in the 1930s. The passenger trains were replaced by small gas-powered cars, known popularly as “Red or Black Birds” or “Doodle Bugs”, which ran on the rails. The first rail car, the M-1, was acquired in 1930, followed by two others, the M-3 and M-4, which ran until 1953 when the loss of the mail contract and the proliferation of private cars made them uneconomic. The F&GRR continued to serve local industry as a freight-only line thereafter. In 1953 the Bonhomie and Hattiesburg Southern Railroad (B&HSRR), which operated a 27 mile-long line between Hattiesburg and Beaumont, Mississippi, was added to the group. However, the proposed merger in the late 1960s of the two trunk lines that the short-lines connected with, the Illinois Central and Gulf, Mobile and Ohio railroads, made it impossible for them to continue independently. In 1972 the merger of the FC&GRR-B&HSRR with the Illinois Central Gulf was completed and the Enochs family bowed out of the short-line railroad business. The Enochs established wood products plants at Fernwood in the 1930s, which evolved into Fernwood Industries specializing in the pressure treatment of timber products.

Scope and Contents

The Fernwood collection contains materials concerning the business affairs of the Enochs family, principally relating to the Fernwood Lumber Company, Enochs Farms and the Fernwood, Columbia and Gulf Railroad. The materials include two letterpress copybooks and a group of correspondence related to job vacancies for the Fernwood Lumber Company. The financial records of the companies include tax assessments, mostly on microfilm, along with records of goods ordered by the railroad company during the Second World War. The railroad company records contain minute books and reports to the Interstate Commerce Commission—on microfilm—as well as accident reports. There are a small number of documents related to the efforts to federally regulate short-line railroads in the late 1920s and early 1930s. A feature of the collection is the large number of maps, surveys, charts and plans, which were used by the lumber company and the railroad company. A calendar of the documents is included in the finding aid. In addition there are a small number of photographs, broadsides, posters and miscellany.

The collection is divided into six series. The first, Fernwood Lumber Company, contains two letterpress copybooks with correspondence written predominantly by the chief engineer, W. D. Hurt, between 1906 and 1916. Some of the letter copies outline the assets of the company. A large group of correspondence covers the recruitment of personnel for various positions within the company between 1915 and 1926. There are also financial records, such as tax assessments on microfilm, a contract, and a list of the assets of the Fernwood Hotel.

The second series, Fernwood and Gulf / Fernwood, Columbia and Gulf Railroad Company, includes correspondence from 1931-1934, and microfilm copies of almost all the reports submitted to the Interstate Commerce Commission between 1908 and 1970. The microfilm also features a minute book with records of directors and shareholders meetings held between 1906 and 1973. The series contains records of orders placed by the company during World War II, and reports and correspondence related to accidents on the railroad between 1916 and 1958. A small number of photographs of railroad crossings and a damaged train are included in the Accidents sub-series. Between 1926 and 1931, Congress looked at extending federal regulation over the short-line railroads to restrict profits and to allow competition from road-based carriers. The American Short Line Railroad Association opposed these efforts and there is a small group of documents related to this subject. Among the other items in this series are a number of personnel appointment notices from railroads in different parts of the country, and some examples of tickets and ice coupon booklets used by the FC&GRR.

Contained in the third series, Enochs Farms, are microfilmed copies of tax assessments for the period 1915 to 1922.

Series four, Publications, includes two books: one dealing with how to draw plans, and the other dealing with the construction of wooden boxes and crates. There is an anti-union pamphlet from Texas in 1920, and a copy of the Federal Employers’ Liability Act of 1939.

The fifth series is a grouping of miscellaneous materials. This Miscellany includes information on the history of the Enochs family companies and the specifications of a house being built in 1936 by FC&GRR vice-president Lamar Ramsay. A balance sheet headed Miss Ida I. Sykes and dated 1874, and a newspaper page of 1922 advertising the sale of land to pay taxes in Pike County are also included. The series features broadsides on wage law issued by the Southern-Mid-Western Industry Committee in 1937, and a color poster from the Chicago World’s Fair of 1934. Two photographs of a timber factory and unidentified men complete the series.

Series six, Maps, charts, surveys, plans, is a large group of documents used in the operations of the Fernwood Lumber Company and the railroad. There are surveys of land owned by the companies in south Mississippi, plats of subdivided land in company-created towns like Barto and Knoxo, as well as maps of where railroad lines would be built. The series included plans for various structures including a railroad station, the Consolidated High School and the Lamar Ramsay house. Some railroad bed construction charts are among this group, as well as copies of relevant parts of the 1809-1810 survey of the Mississippi Territory. A calendar of documents is included in the finding aid.
