More on John McGraw

Back in June, I posted a chapter from George Goodrich about the McGraw family, which mentioned that John McGraw:

"... became interested in lumber speculations in a small way, which prepared him for his future success upon a large scale in that line of business, first in Allegany county, and afterwards in Michigan, where he operated near Bay City one of the largest lumber mills in the country."

While surfing around the Internet, I found a lot more information about that mill in Bay City, including a picture of the operation. It also discusses the court battles over his daughter's estate.
