Re: Bourette county MI jackman mill.
Hmmm strange. The ole timer might have got his counties mixed up that was searching for this mill with an old friend of his. They were directed to a side road where they came to a hump in the dirt road they said and according to them they found the old railroad grade that was fairly close to west Branch. I have followed faint traces of this grade on google earth and historic aerials. It appears it just ended in a field area, and I see no traces of any connection with the line into west branch. I am assuming this was an old logging spur and didn't realy stick around very long. I have found many other Spurs coming off the line to gladwin also. I just love that junction in pinconning or what's left of it for the line to gladwin. I hope they never remove that lil stub left of the junction. That is a piece of old rail history.
