Henry Barrow brought his wife and two sons to Dallas in hopes of finding work. They moved into a shantytown under the Continental Street Viaduct. Henry and the boys made money collecting scrap metal. Things changed for the better when Henry’s wagon was hit by a car killing his mule and destroying the wagon. The money he received in settlement was enough to build the Star Service Gas Station on Singleton Ave.
