owned a freight and stage line
in Jacksboro and Fort Griffin.

Railroad came through here, Soule
brought his wife Lilla and family
in 1883. He opened a stage line
and livery stable at this site
near the business section. he
hauled freight and passengers to
Oklahoma and as far west as
Quanah and Benjamin. Occasionally
he was robbed by highwaymen.

line and ran livery barns here, in
Harold, and in Vernon until 1912.
