Steamtown Creek Millstone

If only objects could tell their story . This is the tale of the millstone as I have heard it.
There is speculation about how the millstone shown in the photos was used.
A number of years ago, it was located on the Tioga River Flats in Lindley near Steamtown Creek. It had apparently been washed up by a flood. Members of the Judson Kennedy family rescued it and had it on their lawn until they moved to California. Arlie and Katherine(Kennedy - a sister to Judson)Loughridge then became owners. After their death,the stone was in the possession of another member of the Loughridge family.
In 2009, the millstone was placed in an auction.Fortunately, a former resident of Lindley recognized the stone and was able to purchase it. While not in it's original location,(as far as we know) the millstone found a home at a Steamtown Creek residence.
Members of the Loughridge family report that their Grandmother remembered seeing the stone used to grind corn on Steamtown Creek.
Where and how it was use…

Condolences to the Abramson, King, and Titlow Families. Our community has lost three great men. All will be deeply missed. Do not stand at my grave and forever weep. I am not there; I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn's rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush. I am the swift uplifting rush. Of quiet bird in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and forever cry. I am not there. I did not die.

Honoring all Area Veterans

Hopefully, the process of learning how to use a new scanner has been successful.

This is a copy of a poster being distributed by various organizations involved in the event on August 14 th. Click to enlarge -then 'back' to return to the blog messages

Sounds like a wonderful way to salute those who have sacrificed to preserve our freedoms as we know them.

Hope to see many of you there.
