Floating Sawmill in N.E. Arkansas ~  Perry Hooper is at right side with hat and suit coat
Owned and operated by my grandfather Perry Hooper

Many farmers and land owners had wood to be milled, but it was inaccessible
by roads. The solution was a floating sawmill which could be carried on a
boat, assembled and disassembled, then moved to another location. My
grandfather operated this sawmill until after 1920. He went into the
trucking business, and this business closed during the Great Depression.

My father Glen C. Hooper(born 1911) helped on the sawmill, and then was a
driver in the trucking business. In 1937-38 he moved to Oregon and worked
as a lumberjack until 1940 when he moved the family to Michigan.
