This is the title of a book by artist Jere Brady, Morgantown, Berks County, PA. The book is about the area known as Scarlet's Mill, named for the mill built ca. 1748, by John Scarlet. he was the son of John and Eleanor (Martin), and grandson of Humphrey and Ann (Richards)Scarlet. John moved from southern Chester County and bought 208 acres in what is now Robeson Township, Berks County. He operated his mill on the Hay Creek and with his sons developed what became a small 18th century industrial complex with the larger community that surrounded it there. The Scarlet's were Quakers associated with the Robeson Quaker Meeting. The book is illustrated by the author. It is not a comprehensive history of the Scarlet family, but could be used to tour the area as it is today. The sketches are accompanied with a short historical comentary taken from interviews and memoires of those folks that have lived in the area for generations. Cover of the book is a photo of the John Scarlet log house. A very enjoyable read!
