During the fall of 1831, Hull Sherwood moved in with the remainder of his numerous family. He came from Rochester, Monroe Co., N. Y., and was accompanied by his married sons Eber Sherwood, Hull Sherwood, Jr., and Royal Sherwood, with their families, Lebbeus Sherwood, an unmarried son, and a young man named J. McCormick, now a resident of Gun Plain township. The Sherwoods also settled near the mouth of Pine Creek, and, assisted by Mr. [Giles] Scott, commenced building a dam and saw mill at the mouth of that creek. Their saw-mill was completed in the winter of 1831-32, and was followed in 1834 by a grist-mill*, of which J. Volentine was the master mechanic.

  • Oka Town and three other men went with four ox-teams to Detroit to procure the iron and machinery for this mill, the trip requiring three week's time. This mill for several years supplied a wide extent of country. It was strongly built, and having since been repaired and enlarged, is still at work.
