Hello List......I hope everyone had a nice Christmas.
I am wondering if anyone knows anything about the John Wakeman Saw mill, which
might've become the Den River Saw mill. I had heard that my Great Great Grandpa
operated the Den River Saw Mill in or near Beerston, that is how it was listed on one of
the old maps, however, I have since seen that Ephraim and Hulda deeded it over to their
oldest son, Clark J Beers on December 3, 1888. George Washington Beers, Ephraim's
brother, who married into the Wakeman family, is also listed in this transaction, so I am
not even totally sure that it is the same saw mill.
I know of the Hanford Mills Museum and am planning on recontacting them with the newest
information, 'cause when I contacted them before, I asked about Den River saw mill,
and didn't mention the Wakeman title.
If anyone knows of another place to contact, or knows of this mill first hand, I would
appreciate your enlightenment and any information that you can give me.
Thanks for your time, and hope you have a happy new year!!
