From Jack Co., TX. history:
He was borned on the his grandmother Melissa's homestead. He remembered that they had a rock and brush fence around their garden and set sharpened stakes behind the fence in low places. When the deer jumped over they were glad to find fresh meat in the form of deer impaled on the stakes. He also told of the hugh flocks of wild turkey present. They got so tired of eating turkey that they shot them off the roost for their hogs.
Paul and family moved to Berwick, TX. for a short time. About 1915 they moved to Jacksboro, where Paul opened a hamburger stand on the east side of the square. Ella soon took over the operation of the hamburger stand, due to Paul's bad health. A year or two later he became one of Jacksboro's pioneer fur dealers, expanding the business to where he was receiving furs from all areas of Texas and some from other states. The fur business gave a great boost to our economy at a time when it was greatly needed. Opossums were selling for $3.00, ringtail cats for $7.50 and skunks for $5.00, sometimes as much as $10.00. many families depended on their fur catch to provide winter necessities.
Ella continued with her hamburger stand, moving it to south Main, then to West Belknap and became widely known for her good hamburgers. Everyone came to town on Sat. afternoon and many farm boys and girls and their parents looked forward to one or more of Mrs. Gafford's hamburgers and a bottle of red soda. Hamburgers were originally 6 for 25 cents, later 3 for 35 cents.
In 1933, Paul opened the first auto store in Jacksboro, TX. His son Ingram bought the store in 1939. Ella sold her hamburger stand to her sister, Mary Herd and husband Jesse.
