Albert Wood

Lumbering was and is yet an important industry. Sawmills were built on Little River, Turtle Creek, and Mill Creek. The first mill on Turtle Creek was built by James GELDART, about three miles from its mouth or near the head of the tide. Another, a short distance further up stream was built by James WALLACE. Others were built at Turtle Creek and at lower Turtle Creek; a combined grist-mill and saw-mill was owned and operated by Rufus FILLMORE till only a few years ago. At the present time the only mills in the parish are those of Albert WOOD at Coverdale and the Wright Lumber Company at Little River. The Wright mill was burned down in the summer of 1905 but it was quickly rebuilt with all up-to-date machinery and is now probably the best equipped mill in the county.


Allen Wood died in Buffalo, New York where had gone for treatment for an unnamed illness,(said to be cancer by later family memberss) his body brought home by train and accompanied by his daughter Orpah (Wood) Smith of Montreal- re Newspaper article.

Business Owned aft 1920 Wood & Colpitts General Store, Salisbury, with Fred W. Colpitts, M.L.A.
