Garriott's son-in-law opened bulk coffee delivered to the store and found it to be green and unparched. He exclaimed, "Dad, this coffee is half rock!" The town came to be known then as Halfrock. John N Garriott was succeeded by his grandson S N [Steven Newton] Garriott, who in turn sold it to A J Hill. [DG photo of store]
