Sorry, it didn't make much since to me either. According to the 'History of Nicholas County' a Richard Cheatham built the first store in 1860. 'The original name Hooktown was given to Hooktown because of a robbery which was committed soon after the store was built.' It does say Hooktown was also known as Centerville. I went ahead and looked up Hook in the Surname index. The only Hook listed is James Hook married to Lucinda cottingham 10/31/1849. the book was republised by the Nicholas Co. Historical Society in 1992.
