Does anyone have any information on the sawmills in the Hickman County area around 1900?

McCaleb's I believe had a sawmill. My father is 83 and I ask him to name more to be sure open at turn of century.

There was a sawmill in Vernon, Tn. near Pinewood and Nunnelly during that time period. The Fox family would be able to give information, because they have lived in the area forever. There was also a sawmill in Centerville, located at the bottom of the West End hill near the old bridge. It was run by the Thornhills, I believe, during it's later days. It has long since closed. Hope this helps.

The name of the people who owned and operated the sawmill @Centerville was Thornton, not Thornhill. I remember the wife of the man who ran it was a school teacher in the Hickman County School System. Maggie
