The fIrst corn mill over put up in

Bluckhead that flows into Enoree river

this little stream. lie had marrIed a
Miss Petty, I sil)pose for I find at
battrons in old papers Written more
than a huInired years ago that his sons
were inmed William Petty Poole, Seth
Petty Poole, George Petty Poole, and
so on down. It was the fashion' of
that time to give a boy his mother's
maiden iamle for a ( second name. So
we m31ight conclude that the mother of
the famous Alary Alusgrove was a Miss
