Grissom’s Mill Crossing on Gum Creek in Itawamba County ca. 1910

Grissom’s Mill was located on Gum Creek in northeastern Itawamba County northwest of Mt. Zion Church about a mile west of the Alabama State Line. Pictured crossing the creek at the mill are Leander McKinney (driving the oxen team), Daniel P. “Bud” Stanphill, Jr. with wife Nolie Frances and baby Dexter. Also pictured are Fannie Martin (Bud’s sister), Carrie and Evie Martin, and Clara Mae, daughter of Bud and Nolie Stanphill. The group was on a shopping trip from the hills of northeastern Itawamba County to the nearby town of Red Bay, Alabama.
