Wheeling Creek Kittle Grist Mill in Marshall County, WV

Sarah Kittle, daughter of Silas and Catherine Hockensmith Kittle married John Messecher, son of Nicholas Messeker. They resided in then Ohio County, Virginia (now Marshall County, WV. Nearby, on Wheeling Creek was a Kittle Grist Mill. This mill I suspect was operated and likely owned by Silas Kittle. I have only brief mention of this and no specific knowledge that Silas was the owner or operator.
John Messecher later built a grist mill at Louden in Marshall County about 1845. I believe John learned the trade at the Kittle mill on Wheeling Creek.
I am searching for more records of this mill.
