      Living in Ohio I see alot of them in the area except they are normally about 4 - 5 ft. in diameter...to my understanding they were used in mills to grind corn

      Your grinding wheel probable came from this type grinder. They were common and still a lot of them out there. http://depositphotos.com/5443374/stock-photo-Antique-Grinding-Wheel-Sharpening-Stone.html

      As for the grist mill wheels I think they would have groves on the sides. I can't image there would be a LOT of the 4-5 ft wheels out there, even in Ohio.
