Thomas Cox Mill

William Cox received a land grant in Nov 1757 on the head of “Cox Mill Creek” waters of Deep River, implying that Cox’s Mill was already in existence in 1757. William Cox died in early 1767 and left his mill to his son Thomas Cox (Orange Co. Will Book A, page 53). And this site was long known as Thomas Cox's Mill.


The site was redeveloped as Bean’s Mill about 1900, possibly using a slightly different dam location. The dam is now washed out, but the mill building is still standing and the metal breast wheel is also present. Bean sold the mill to Raymond and Flossie Cox in 1939, making it the Cox Mill once again.


William Cox's other son, Harmon Cox, also had a mill, but it was on the east side of the deep on Millstone Creek.
