Land Ownership and Transfer by the Mill Owners at Bivingsville and Glendale

Story furnished by Clarence Crocker

Over the years, since Dr. Bivings started his mill on Lawson's Fork, a series of owners have  bought, owned and sold the property. Mr. Clarence Crocker has traced the land transactions all the way back to when Dr. Bivings bought the original property in 1838. The interesting story he has written about this can be read at Mill Land Ownership.

Mr. Crocker was an employee of the mill for many years and was involved when the Mill Company sold its house to the mill workers in the 1950's.  He became concerned with the deed transfers at this time. See Selling the Houses.

See the Platt of Mill Company Property in 1959.
