This is a piece taken from the NISHNA VALLEY TRIBUNE from Audubon, Iowa
Saturday, Oct 30, 1976 Section 3. The article was A story of one of
oldest one family owned farms
Written by Marion L. Walker, age 85, a great grandson. I assume of W H
and Eliza Watson Bowen.
However I am interested in this part of it:
>From Dalmanutha in Guthrie county they followed the Mormon trail past
the Mormon crossing where Nath Hamlin had settled on Troublesome creek
in 1851 and then on a mile or so to Reuben CARPENTER place where they
probably spent their nooning.
Mr. Bowen lingered when the family pushed on after dinner--likely
learning about the vicinity and the wagons had gone about three or four
miles when he rode up and said turn back, we own a farm. he had dealt
for the Carpenter holding. Mr Carpenter having had his eye on the place
with a good spring where Jeffy Roberts now lives. This was a couple of
miles north of the Hamlin farm at the Mormon crossing now owned by
Mr Carpenter put in a water mill on Troublesome Creek at his new place
in 1856 I think the first mill in Audubon county This place is usually
called the old Berge place. Jim Berge being a Carpenter son in law.
Jim Berge (BIRGE) was my GGrandpa. He was married to Lucindia
Does anyone know about the mill that Rueben CARPENTER built? or about
any family members?
