I am extremely late with my question pertaining to this entire strip of area. I even ran the thought by Jerseyman during one of our discussions.. What do you guys think the odds are one of these mill locations was at some point in time the sawmill that Bodine also operated?I was able to get back to the site of the skit mill today. There were clearly at least two mill races, and there might have possibly been a third. The mills existed at these two locations:
It looks then that there were two mills here utilizing two separate mill races on opposite sides of the river. Notice that the mill owner (Ballangee?) made use of an abandoned river channel in order to power the southernmost of the two mills, rather than excavating an entire raceway.
