I remember this old mill from my childhood. When I stayed with my grandparents every summer in Cherokee County, they would visit the old Sixes Mill and I remember it was located on a dirt road like most of the roads in the county. It is now part of a historical park in Canton, Georgia. I did not realize its' historical significance. Fort Sixes is located there which was used as a Cherokee Indiana removal fort. This location is listed in the Trail of Tears. I wonder how many of my own relatives were removed from the area. My mother's ancestors were Cherokees from North Georgia. Her ancestor married a white man and they lived around Greenville at the time of the Trail of Tears in 1838.
