In Reply to: westover mill by Randy Westover of 872

Randy, I am not of the Westover family but I was born and raised in Waukau, Winnebago Cnty., Wi. I remember the Westover Mill very well, I believe the owners's name was Leon and his wife was Ruth. I have a book that I purchased while vacationing back home in Waukau two yrs. ago, it is called "Waukau, A History by Ruth Westover, 1979", I purchased same as my ancestors were early settlers of this little town of Waukau. In this book there is a picture of a gentleman named Leon Westover and his wife Ruth and Leon's sister Eva Diley, picture was taken in 1954. Also a pic in this book of the parlor of Edward Westover's home in Waukau depicting a home of the 1890's. Also a pic featuring Westover & Sons Milling Co., 1922, names noted are Edward Westover and sons Leon and Charles, I remember the mill was next to a blacksmith shop which was next to our grade school, which now stands as a bed and breakfast. Not sure if you live in Wi., however if you do you might find alot of interesting info. by a visit to this town of Waukau. If you would like for me to further search the book for anymore Westover info. please advise me. I have memory of alot great people of this town. Good luck in your search
