Historicial Development: Childers and Hall acquired a portable Ames Engine No. 3 for $566.66. The term sawmill is not mentioned expressly in the documents. However, the early sawmillers of San Augustine County often performed multi-milling operations in the manufacturing of cornmeal, ginned cotton, and lumber with the same engines and boilers running all equipment.
