We thought it appropriate to run the account at this time. since the mlllhouse was destroyed by fire Friday, July 22. At Stout's Mill in a deed dated Feb. 4, 1847, Hezekiah Stout and his wife Terry sold one acre of ground for a saw mill site to James Maze. The deed specified that Maze was not to build a mill to grind corn ar wheat since Stout had a grist mill on the opposite side of the river near the mouth of Big Sliding Hill Run. Thus both mills were below, or near the present Stout's Mill bridge from W.Va. Route 5. The building for the Maze mill, remodeled and substantially rebuilt. has been used far many years as a home. It sits on the southeasterly side of the Little Kanawha River. All traces of the Stout's mill are gone. Stout drove a hard bargain with Maze. He specified that Maze or his successor, would have to pay a fee of $300 if a grist or flour mill were installed on the site. He also stipulated that if Maze built a dam. that He {Stout) was to have use of some of the water when the supply was plentiful. Maze did build a dam to help maintain his supply of water. This created a hazard for men rafting logs to the Parkersburg market. They had to guide their logs through a chute on the Maze side of the river. As the logs ! Cae to an end.

Gllmer County volunteer firemen were called to the scene at 1:05 a.m. but Assistant Chief Greg Nicholson said flames were already shooting through the roof. Firemen directed most of their energies toward saving the nearby residence of Emet Brohard. The Burnsville Volunteer Fire Dept, also responded to the call. The house was unoccupied. Fire Dept. officers have no explanation for the cause of the fire. [Democrat photo] early 1900 when gasoline boats begin running the river between Burnsville and Glenville. After some years Maze sold the mill to David Taylor and Bill Steele. They sold it to Bert and Willa May. Frank Steele owned, or operated, the mill when the dam was removed and converted the power to steam. The 1883 Hardesty map also shows a Spicor's mill between Stout's Mill and Sand Fork, and a Wiant mill at Sand Fork. .....ATTEND THE CHURCH Trey Ualtmi Methodist Circuit 1st Sunday: Liberty at Hurst, 10 a.m., Vadis at 11 a.m., 2nd Sunday: Cox's Mills 10 a.m., Troy 11 a.m., Doyle Chapel 7 p.m., 3rd Sunday: Troy 10 a.m., and Mt.
