Story. in the extreme south, lies on the banks of Raccoon Run, and was built up by Abel Kinsey in the course of a long and useful life. He came to the neighborhood with his father in 1801, where they built a large blacksmith-shop and tilthammer, and carried on an extensive business in all kinds of work connected with an establishment of this kind. After Kinsey's death, the establishment was converted into a spoke-mill carried on by Benjamin B. Phillips and Hiram Wilson, and is now changed again into a saw-mill, owned by Samuel Conard. All the houses constituting the village were built on the land originally owned by the Kinseys. So profitable was the business done by them in the commencement of their career that the work done for Samuel Carter alone, from whom they purchased the property, was sufficient to pay the purchase money in a little over ten years. Carter had, by request of John Kinsey, looked out a situation suitable for the business, and bought the property for them, and at the end of ten years conveyed to them, very little money passing between them, the work paying nearly the whole.
