Thanks for replying, Jeffrey. For what it's worth, I believe it to be " north of Roanke River and bounded by the south side of Sandy Creek". At least that is the description of one piece of property that he sold to John Atkinson of Charlotte County when he, himself, moved to Halifax Co., VA. However, there were different names for the boundaries: Harwood, Willis, Willises Cr.
Would this place it around butcher's Creek? Arlina
