The consolidation of A. D. Harby’s business, A. D. Harby, and the Booth Live Stock Company, owned by J. P. Booth and E. S. Booth, in 1908 created the Booth-Harby Live Stock Company. The Booth-Harby Live Stock Company sold farm products, buggies, carriages, livestock, and building material. The Booth-Harby Live Stock Company remained in operation until the end of 1913, when it became the Booth-Schuler Lumber & Supply Co.
