Patrick Porter1

M, (May 1, 1737 - Apr 28, 1798)
Father*Benjamin Porter2
Mother*Ann Campbell2
     Patrick Porter was born on May 1, 1737 at Ireland.2,1,3 He was a famous explorer with Daniel Boone.1 He married Susannah Walker, daughter of John Walker and Ann Houston Hudson, circa 1756 at Orange, North Carolina, US.1 Patrick Porter was in 1769 at Castlewood, Scott, Virginia, US; moved to Castlewood.1 He was in 1772 at Clinch River, Virginia, US; lived on Clinch.1 He Patrick Porter Mill

On March 2, 1774, the Court of old Fincastle Co., VA, entered the following order:

"On motion of Patrick Porter, leave is granted him to build a mill on Falling Creek the waters of Clinch."

This is the first order ever recorded for a mill on Clinch River and it was probably the first mill ever built in Scott Co.

There is little doubt that the Porter Mill of 1774 was of log, and that the picture is of a rebuilt mill on the same site and foundation.

Patrick Porter, 1737-1828, and his wife Susanna Walker came to the Clinch from Guilford Co., NC, in 1772, and built a fort house on Falling Creek, as well as the mill some two years later.

All that remains of the old mill today is some limestone rock foundation, a few runs of brick in the old chimney, and the mill burrs which have been moved to the lawn of the Lee Blackwell home nearby.

This mill had one distinction and that was a chimney made of handmade brick. It has been written that Patrick Porter, his brother-in-law Captain John Snoddy and others organized a Masonic Lodge and held their meetings on the second floor of the mill. If this tradition is true it may explain why the old mill had a chimney and fireplaces, as no other known mills in the area had chimneys. Also this may have been the first Masonic Lodge organized west of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

After the Porters, William Nash owned and operated this mill for a number of years and it was sometimes called Nash's Mill. When the mill was rebuilt is unknown, but it was torn down after the turn of the century. This old mill heard the "war whoop" of many Indians as it creaked its way through more than a century of services to the pioneer settlers. on Mar 2, 1774.4 He died on Apr 28, 1798 at Floyd, Kentucky, US, at age 60.1 He was buried at Patrick Porter Cemetery, Dungannon, Scott, Virginia, Ireland.3 He witnessed A roadside historical marker was erected in his honor which read:

Patrick Porter
(1737–1805)

Patrick Porter was among the early pioneer settlers in present Scott County. Nearby on Fall Creek is the site of Porter’s Mill, built by Porter in 1774, the earliest licensed mill on waters of the Clinch River. Porter is also credited with the erection of a fort house in the same year to protect residents from Indian attacks. His son Samuel travelled with Daniel Boone to Kentucky in 1773 and in 1778 answered Boone’s request for assistance in defending Boonesborough.
