History by Tony Howe:

The Boyle & Sunflower River Railroad was incorporated by the L. V. Boyle & Co., who owned a large sawmill at Boyle, just south of Cleveland, MS. The line was built east from Boyle to a landing on the Sunflower River at Dockery and west from Boyle to timber owned by the company near Lake Kimball. The Y&MV bought the line in 1900.
