This is a good website to find a listing of all the sawmills in Texas. Go to TEXAS FORESTRY MUSEUM website (in Lufkin, TX.) At the top right click "Research" then click on the "Sawmill Database", be sure and go to Montgomery Co. and from there find your name. Please note that in this database all the listings are by FRIST NAME OR INITIAL, not sorted by last names. You might have to go through the whole file to find your name, depending on how it is listed. I know there is a Dunn listing. You might want to read all the "briefs" abt. each sawmill. Some of them give good discriptions of the mill's whereabouts. I have seen alot in the Magnolia area. Good Luck.
