Historicial Development: G. W. Sisk had a sawmill at Woodlawn, north of Marshall, in Harrison County, after the turn of the century. In April, 1906, he mortgaged with Homer Wurtzbaugh for a Pine Ridge planer (possibly from the Lancaster-Grogan sawmill plant there). The mortgage was canceled in December.
