Salola or "Clint" was the son of Dr. William Perry Andrews and his wife Susan Ann Love Andrews. During Ku Klux Klan activities around 1870, Salola was accused of an act he denied doing but found it advisable to leave the state. He went to Arkansas where he lived for 2 years at Cut Off (200 miles south of Memphis - Drew Co) and was a Deptuy Sheriff there. On his way to arrest a man guilty of a misdemeanor, he was shot and mortally wounded.

Dr. Andrews went to AR to bring back the body of his son and inter him in the Shelby cemetery and while there he ate some pecans, the first he had ever seen. He brought several of the nuts back with him and planted them in hte yard of his home on S. Washington St. (D. W. Royster residence) where they became huge trees and still bore nuts in 1969.
