|In Jane Lew, West Virginia|
Edward Jackson, "Stonewall's" grandfather, came to the West Fork valley with his family in 1801 and built a log gristmill at a bend on the east side of West Fork River sometime within the next few years. Milling was an import industry… his son Cummins took possession after Edward's death.
Cummins rebuilt the mill you see today … in 1841. Power was provided by two water wheels situated beneath the first floor.
