I was wondering if anyone has undertaken any investigation into the history of the lake on Mark's Creek in Eastern Wake County now known as Lake Myra.
The 1887 Shaffer's map of Wake County calls the mill there Hood's Mill while the earlier 1871 Fendol Bevers map calls it N. Price's Mill.
There is a rumor in my family that my gg-grandfather, William H. Hood (1812-1868), helped build the dam there with the use of slave labor, but this is entirely unconfirmed. I am interested to know what connection there is between the Hood family and Hood's mill.
