While your question doesn't give specifics as to timeframe, I presume you are asking about the mill erected 1819 by Michael Schenck, John Hoke, and James Bivens. If so, it was called the Lincoln Cotton Factory. John Hoke bought the interest of Schenck and Bivens in 1835. When the mill burned in 1863, the Confederate government began erecting a laboratory at the site in the summer of that year. In 1887 Daniel E. Rhyne erected a mill named the Laboratory Cotton Mill on the site. In more recent years the plant was part of the holdings of Rhyne Mills, Inc.
If this is what you are looking for and you need further details, post another message and I will give you references.
