I have the history of Ozark County book here and I see several mills. Hodgsons were involved in many of them.
There is a line that says
"The elder Hodgsons had lived for a time on Brush Creek east of Dora and Isaiah Hodgson operated a mill on the North Fork. He was listed several times as a miller in the Missouri State Gazetter during the 1890's." (Wonder if the MO Archives might have copies?)

Could the mill your talking about be the Hammond Mill? An online article states that it is in ruins, with possible plans for refurbishing. It also states that the mill was three stories tall.
Printed reference maybe.
A good beginning introduction to water mills in the Ozarks is found in the book,Water Mills of the Missouri Ozarks, by George Suggs, Jr., from the University of Oklahoma Press.
Good Luck...If my mother was still alive I'm sure she could tell me all about it. She was born and grew up in Bakersfield, MO.
