About Andrew Russell (Oregon Pioneer)


SOUTH PALMYRA TOWNSHIP from 1879 History of Macoupin County, Illinois

extracted by Mary Ann Stewart Kaylor

The first mill was built by ANDREW RUSSELL. It was a very simple arrangement,

consisting of two burrs with a vertical shaft attached to the burrs and a crank at the top

which was turned by hand. During the severe winter of 1829 and '30 the settlers gathered

around this little mill with their corn and waited for their turn to grind. The next mill was

erected near the present town of Palmyra, by JAMES CAVE, in 1835; it was run by

horses or oxen, and was called the sweep mill. It certainly was a great improvement over

the hand mill.
