Mike writes: The store with the Pepsi Cola sign was known as Pates Grocery. It was a place where deer hunters gathered back in the 80’s when hunting deer with dogs was very active . The lady that ran it was known as Ma Pate . Her mother told me one time that all around there were the most beautiful Cotton fields and then one day some(one) came along bought it all up and planted it in pine trees . That later led to the most attractive hunting area in the state.  I hunted there for 25 years 1977-2003 in a club that was named Hitchitee Creek Hunting Club (leased from Ga. Kraft then sold to Mead which later merged with Westvaco.
