In 1759, a 552 acre tract surveyed for Daniel Dillon on Reedy Fork and Beaver Creeks and granted to him in 1759 by the Earl of Granville, on behalf of King George II of England. Land was transferred to him for a yearly payment forever of 22 shillings and 1 penny. When England lost the Revolutionary War, no
further payments were needed to be made. At this location, Daniel started a water-powered grist mill which is still in operation today (1996). It is a historical monument which has served the area for many more than 200 years. A brief chronological history of the mill ownership is in files of RLG as well as copies of the original deed and other information. Location of the mill is in Oak Ridge, NC and is located on Highway 68 between I-40 and Highway 150 - 5 miles North of the Greensboro-High Point Airport,
approximately half way between Winston-Salem and Greensboro.


Daniel married Lydia B. Hodgson about 1743 in Virginia. (Lydia B. Hodgson was born on Apr 4, 1713 and died on May 29, 1800 in New Garden, Guilford, North Carolina.)
