Leggett mortgaged sawmill machinery, to include carriage track, two giant dogs for a #3 sawmill, a yoke mandrel and hinges for a swing saw, a friction shaft balance, and a set of parallel bars, on January 1, 1923, to Peden Iron & Steel of Houston. This may have been equipment from an earlier Jessie Leggett mill at Marston, in Polk County.
