Biographical history

W. Smith was a farmer and/or miller in Pictou ca. 1823. He is possibly William Smith, an early settler who established a flour and grist mill on his farm at West River, near Durham. The mill was in continuous use for several generations until J.W. Smith (1870-1935), William's great-grandson, moved it to Pictou and used it as the foundation for the Atlantic Milling Company.
