The pioneers of the Bullpasture must very speedily have had a bridle-path along the river bottom, but a direct way to the courthouse soon became a necessity. So Wallace Estill was directed, May 29, 1751, to clear a road from his mill to a road already opened to the head of the Calfpasture. The settlers appointed by the court to help him were Loftus Pullin, Richard Bodkin, Samuel Ferguson, Matthew Harper, John Miller, William Price, James Anglen, James Hall, Philip Phegan, John Shaw, Hackland Wilson, two John Carliles, and Robert and William Carlile.
By petition of May 18, 1753, this road was extended from Estill's mill to William Wilson's mill at the mouth of the Bolar Run. Stephen Wilson and Hugh Hicklin were overseers for this section, and to work under them were John Miller, William and John Wilson, Samuel and Robert Gay, Robert and John Carlile, John and Thomas Hicklin and Loftus Pullin
