A grist-mill was built near the confluence of the Lily Pond brook with the Catsbane, as early as 1767, and perhaps earlier. (See p. 39.) It was owned by Eleazer Cobleigh, Sen. Upwards of fifty years ago, the stones of which the dam of this mill was constructed were removed, and used in making the abutments of the bridge over the Catsbane, a short distance south-east of Ransom Farr's house.
The grist-mill now owned by Warren W.Farr, at the WestVillage, was originally a shop in which John Snow and Ora Farr manufactured, for a short time, scythes and hoes. It was afterwards used by Alpheius Snow for a blacksmith's shop. About fifty years ago it was converted into a grist-mill by Wm. R.
