Our Scottish maternal Great Grandfather, John Hewitt was the Head Miller at the Pioneer Mill in San Antonio and also oversaw the Mill in Mexico. The Pioneer Mill was owned by the German Family, Guenther. Their home is now a museum and restaurant. The Pioneer Mill is still in business and their products are sold nationwide. We started our river voyage with a hearty Texas breakfast and then headed for the river barges. We had the best time that day in spite of a cold north wind.
