Query: Hunt Flour Mill

M. S. of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, wants information on when and where the Hunt Flour Mill was established.

From David Minor:
A quick search turns up Hunt’s mills in:
London, Ontario
Old Rehoboth, Massachusetts
New Jersey
Are we looking for one of these, or for one in New York State.?

If it's Richard Hunt it must have been in or around Waterloo but from my reading he owned a textile mill.But the area had to have at least one flour mill so maybe he owned one at some point.But there was also a Hunt who became Gov of N.Y. and he lived in the Niagra region though I think he was a lawyer and not a mill owner.
