(Note: The following is part of a series of articles looking at the history and evolution of agriculture in Georgia and Bulloch County.) As the naval stores business in Bulloch County picked up, the E. E. Foy Manufacturing Co. (owned by E. E. Foy, his son John E. Foy and W. W. Olliff) started a small “tram railroad” (or Foy Railroad) to carry the fallen trees to their mills. James N. and William Wood, along with B. L. Robertson, started the Wood Manufacturing Co. and then built their own “tram railroad” (or Cuyler and Woodburn Railroad). F. P. Register set up shop in Bengal, nine miles west of Statesboro, in 1894.
