Sincere thanks to the late Amelia Gilreath for sharing these records. The picture above is from Amelia's book, "Oh Shenandoah I love your daughter, The Irwin-Holler Story." The book includes many wonderful photos with a very special photo of "Amy" and her horse, Actor, appearing on the last page of the book.

Columbia Furnace was built by George Mayberry and Benjamin Pennybacker. It was later owned by John Arthur and Company (which included Benjamin Blackford). The next person to purchase the mill was Samuel Myers.
