Historicial Development: Hutto and Lloyd were operating a sawmill, probably in or near Center, in 1907. They took a mortgage with F. E. Jones to obtain a second-hand edger and a boss dog for their sawmill, which they labeled as the “I. F. Miller mill.” Miller was still in business at late as 1910, so this sawmill must have been one that I. F. Miller had sold to them.
