Not available online
TitleA Memorial and Biographical Record of Kansas City and Jackson County, Mo.
AbstractBiographical sketch of Stubbins Watts, "[t]he well known miller on Indian creek" in the South Kansas City village of Dallas, Missouri. Born in Saint Charles County, Missouri in 1838 as a son of Anthony Watts and becoming a western freighter for Russell, Majors & Waddell before serving the Confederacy in the Civil War and returning to operate his father's mill in Jackson County.
NotesPage 638: "There stood in Washington township a little hamlet containing a few log cabins, the beginning of what is now the lively village of Dallas. Not far from this point, on the bank of Indian creek, stood an old mill, built by Mr. Fitzhugh, one of the landmarks in the county. It was both a saw and grist mill, and is to-day the oldest mill in this section of the state, having been built even before the land was surveyed into sections and when the Indians were still numerous in the vicinity."
