    Notes 
    • According to the History of Van Zandt County Clyde "...never liked farming, hated to chop 'them damned persimmon sprouts'. His older brother, Luther, recalls that Clyde, as a small bare-footed boy in knee pants, visited in Grand Saline and spent the day admiring the Salt City Co. store. Luther said Clyde stood outside the store, and pressing both hands on the plate glass front, said 'Someday I'm gonna own me one of them stores!' After working for several merchants as a young man, one of which was the revered Salt City Company, he did achieve his ambition. In 1929, with his savings and borrowed money, he became a 'dry goods' store owner. The present 'Darby's Department Store' now occupies the building which once housed the store he so admired."
