More returns to rootsPublished 12:00am Saturday, June 15, 2013
Livingfield More, his daughter Ellen and grandson Nicholson were visitors recently in Andalusia.
More is the son of E.L. More who came to this area to build the A&F line from Georgiana to Graceville, Fla. He also organized the Horse Shoe Lumber Company. This mill was among the largest of its time and cut most of the virgin long leaf pine in the Conecuh Forest. More also organized the River Falls Power Company and built both dams on the Conecuh. The Mores were hosted at a dinner by Power South officials and escorted to both the dams and the old mill site recently cleared by owner Harry Hugghins.
More who is in his 80s was eager for his grandson to see some of the family’s history in Covington County. The group visited the Three Notch Museum and the old Headquarters Camp. While in the Conecuh National Forest they stopped by Blue Lake and Open Pond where he recalled many visits in his youth.
