Have this little mention as well.There was in Prince George Co., VA, a little village called "Garysville". It was a place of some importance in the early days, being located a short distance from Hopewell, some eleven miles east of Petersburg, on the Old Stage Road between Richmond and Norfolk, VA. It had a large grist mill, so essential to the early settlers. The old mill was called "Poythess Mill", "Bland Mill", and finally "Cocke Mill," probably named for subsequent owners. The Old Garysville Tavern was a regular stopping place for travelers, as well as a meeting place for the public. No doubt the town was named for this GARY family.
