Gaps in the Callahan Divide—Buffalo, Cedar, and Lemons—are labeled such due to nomadic bison herds, allergy inducing trees, and a fellow whose last name was Lemons.

He arrived in Taylor County in the fall of 1884 as a wrangler on a cattle drive passing through when he decided to put down roots and was taken on as an Abilene deputy.

Descendants of the Minter family remain members of the First Central Presbyterian congregation more than 130 years later.
