Hays Delashman Castle owned saw mills in the south during the 1930's and 1940's under the name "Dixie Lumber Company." He would purchase land with timber, mill the timber, and once the timber was milled gift the land to the African American families who had helped him mill the timber.

15 “I ( Christ ) am the true vine, and My Father ( Godis the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He [a]takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.
5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.
