Per research conducted and submitted by Mr. Bob McFarland, Dushau was a lumber camp community established by the Gilchrist-Fordney company. Posted below are two mentions of Dushau that were located by Mr. McFarland in the Mississippi State Archives. One of these is a Jasper County News article that details the death of his Grandfather, W. J. McFarland. It was located in sections 29 and 30 T3N R10E, or about 3 miles west of Louin.
Note: This is a clip copied from a popular local Jasper County book entitled Hometown Mississippi. The community described is called Dushan instead of Dushau and ownership is credited to Eastman-Gardner instead of Gilchrist-Fordney. If this description is for the village of Dushau, the red dot on the map posted below approximates the location at 11 miles northwest of Bay Springs.
