1849 Aug 11 – T B Goyne’s dry goods and grocery store destroyed by fire. “Fire at Westport, Miss. – We learn from a postscript in the Columbus (Miss.) Democrat of
the 1st inst., that a fire occurred at Westport, on the opposite side of the river, a mile or two above town, on the night of the 31st ult., which completely consumed the dry good and grocery stores of Messrs. G. W. Randolph and T. B. Goyne. The loss of Mr. Randolph is very heavy – nearly all of his goods were consumed. Mr. Goyne’s store, we learn, was ensured. There were two kegs of powder in Mr. Randolph’s store, which exploded with terrific reports, doing no injury, however, to any of those who were engaged at the time in removing the merchandise.
