    1. Re: [NCWARREN] BYrd Creek Familes of Va tied to Nutbush Creek Len HEnley
    2. All of the familes in this are very connected to Johnson research as the Henderson families are also involed in th Transyvania Company purchase of Lands ( Big Creek was in the Original Purchase as was Carter Valley and Stanley Valley of Washington Co NC in what is now Tn) I Will be glad to send Goochland Co Files with the contacts in it for Henderson's The best way to sort them out is by the Lands they owned. That is why I am asking about nutbush Creek and Grassey Creek families. Seeking the FACTS. Delores please send me a e-mail at [email protected] and I will search the JJJDNA Library for Richard Henderson and send you files that we have so you can fact check.
