Hi Ann,

Ironmasters who owned furnaces, etc. for processing iron can be found in
local county land deed records, etc., local history books and historical
societies. One good example is "Miller's Ironworks" on Mossey Creek in
Augusta Co., VA - Henry Miller (AKA the 'iron man') of PA migrated to
Augusta Co., VA, where he and a Mark Bird formed a partnership in 1774 as
ironmasters to build necessary forges, furnace and mills. (Lyman Chalkley,
"Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish...of Augusta County, Virginia" Vol. 3, p.

What information exists on the greater numbers of iron masters to America
prior to the Rev. War?
