The depiction below is one of few insets in the Walling & Putnam map of 1860, indicating this 'large' factory was known throughout the area (or perhaps Mr. Hamilton paid a premium to have his mill featured).  The David VV and Hezekiah VV land at Con 8 Lot 13 was across the river from the mill as shown on the 1878 Meacham Atlas.

 

 

 

Inset (above) from :Map of United Counties of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington, Canada West, by H.F. Walling, Putnam & Walling Publishers, Kingston, C.W. (1860)
