Mill records are very rare – that is – the courts seemed to dispose of these old records. State Law mandated a petition to the county court to approve of damming up a river. However, some counties never enforced this activity, and others just didn’t retain a lot of paper work. This county had a few records. For further research, I recommend researching court records. The mill records are from 1859 and 1868. The road records are from 182 to 1884. They contain some petitions, many legal issues and road reports.< Less
