The following article appeared in the Kenna Record on November 4, 1910.
"The Carmichael Lumber Co., one of the pioneers of the town, has sold out its grocery and hardware business, and most of the company buildings, to the new-comers, whose arrival we mentioned last week, the transaction involving several thousand dollars. The purchaser is T. M. Parkinson, a former Texas farmer of considerable means. Mr. Parkinson has also bought the Mc. Carmichael residence property, which he will occupy with his family."
