The subject's grandfather, named Francis WAFER, was born in South Carolina about 1750, and died in Kentucky in the year 1823, and his great-grandfather, also named Francis WAFER, was born in Ireland about the year 1706. The parents of the subject had eight children, and he began life as a farmer, and married at the residence of the bride's parents Mary Agnes Davidson McLAIN, daughter of John A. McLAIN, who was born in Bedford County, Tennessee 17 June 1826. The subject is a member of the well known firm of Plant & Wafer, millers.

The mill on the south side of the railroad, known as the Greenville City Mills, was built some fourteen years ago by N. W. MCLAIN and James E. WAFER, who ran it for a number of years, when John B. REID became their successor, added some improvements, and sold it to its present owners, Williamson PLANT and Thomas WAFER, who have recently expended several thousand dollars putting in improved machinery to enable them to manufacture a superior grade of flour for their large and growing trade. They have opened up a good shipping trade within the past two years with Belfast, Ireland, Glasgow, Scotland, Liverpool and London, having shipped to those points within that time over thirty car loads of flour, at prices in advance of any market in the United States. This mill also does a general exchange business with farmers the same as the other two mills before referred to. The water for running this mill is abundant in a good well in the mill.
