    3. One other suggestion in case this isn't enough. One of the links on the Warren Co. Links page, is for Historic Overlay Maps. Those maps include an 1874 Warren Co. map which has Smith Creek on it. It allows you to see Smith Creek in 1874, and clicking the button to turn off that map, leaves you with what the same location looks like now.

    3. Hi Deloris, Did you get my email where I wrote about a linen map made by Robert Daniel Paschal, Warren Co, surveyor, in 1874. The map I spoke of was that used by him in his survey trips. His son was the original P'l geneaolgist d,1930. You sure hit the 'nail on the head', as the overlay map is the same. I have a copy made from the linen map. Linen was used so they could roll it and it was not damaged easily. I surely did not know they had gotten that far along. It answers my problem perfectly. The overlay matching is a little off but I notice Smith Cr passes under state hwy 1223 at a little hump in the road. I can now locate my baseline. The grants went to Alexander's Ferry Rd todays hwy 1200. The grand total for the family in grants was over 7000a in this area! There sure have been a lot of civil boundary changes for so little population. Again thanks mucho, Clarence There must have been several copies of the linen map printed. I sure appreciate you response and help. You seem to be everywhere. ----- Original Message ----- From: Deloris Williams To: [email protected] Sent: Saturday, March 09, 2013 10:51 AM Subject: Re: [NCWARREN] How to find Smith Cr?

    3. Hi, I forgot, You sent me a query someone, re: Williams The Williams family was located near P'ls and the son, Dennis P'l,J-line, sold his sister, Ruth's bequest from their father, william to William Williams. I have date/deed. I think Ruth never marr and was deceased when Dennis sold the land. There are other claims of a marriage to Williams but I don't think that's correct. Clarence PS; At my site under Maps you can view her property plat. ----- Original Message ----- From: Deloris Williams To: [email protected] Sent: Saturday, March 09, 2013 10:51 AM Subject: Re: [NCWARREN] How to find Smith Cr?
