Obed Benjamin

White Rock, Kings, NS, Canada
Business Category: Grain Milling, Sawmilling
Remarks: Operated a lumber and grist mill. Some have speculated that it is in the location of one of the first mills that ended up in Stephen P Benjamin's hands. May have had more than one location, like Stephen P did. Likely formed within a few years of his arrival with the planters around 1760.
