Notes for Jacob ANTLE, Sr:
Jacob Antle , lived in the area around Louisville. He was a millwright by trade, and he traveled about the country building or repairing grist mills. He would find a likely place on a stream, dam it up, build a mill, and sometimes operate it for a while then sell it and move on to repeat the process.
My Grandfather,Rev. John R. Antle, Worked with his father in this business while he was a young man still living at home.
I do not know whether it was through the gristmill business or through his church work that brought him farther south in Kentucky where he met and married my grandma.
Bread was an important part of the frontier diet. communities grew up around the gristmill. Everyone raised his own grain, took it to the mill and gave a portion of it to the miller to pay for the grinding.
Women in our family have always taken pride in baking fine breads and pastries. This tradition is still carried on today. Although the supermarkets are full of all kinds of breads, our youngsters still prefer Mom's homemade bread.
