History of Lower Scioto Valley (1884):
The first mill in the township [Harrison] was built in 1804 by Emanuel Traxler, a settler of 1796, on the site of Portsmouth. Benjamin Scott, Sr., was the owner of the mill, and in the year 1836 it was remodeled and repaired by his son, Benjamin Scott, Jr. The dam was built by an old setler named Oldfield. There were several owners of the mill up to 1850, when it was purchased by Silas Dixon, he purchasing it of Joseph Smith, of the Scioto Furnace. Mr. Dixon, in 1866 sold it to his sons, George and Noah, who remained in partnership until 1880, when Noah became sole owner, and is still proprietor. A saw-mill has been added. The flouring mill has three run of burrs, with a capacity of thirty barrels of flour per day of Merchants' Brand, besides custom work. [ancestry-histories]
