    3. This is a test of the Rootsweb lists I am on. It is also some information for the list administrator if they feel the list is not running as expected. And finally it is an attempt to get something posted to the list so Rootsweb does not turn the list off. The list admin should probably go to this page: http://home.rootsweb.ancestry.com/ and try to set up a new mailman login, if not already done. If you do that you will probably get to this page eventually: https://mailinglists.rootsweb.ancestry.com/lists/setupmail Then you might want to sign up for this list: https://mailinglists.rootsweb.ancestry.com/listindexes/search/Listowners But be warned, you will receive postings from that list almost every day.  May 8 a day at times. Another option that I do not encourage is to turn the list over to me - at least temporarily.  Again, I do not want that done if you are willing to keep the list. Mike Flannigan

If you are interested in that, the program is located here: http://www.mflan.com/cgi-bin/gnis.cgi This is an example of the output created. Camden county MO cemeteries: http://www.mflan.com/temp/camdencemeteries.kml You need Google Earth to view that file: http://www.google.com/earth/explore/products/ It is free. This is not fully tested. If you have problems with the program I would appreciate it if you told me about the problem. If you find it frustrating to get the information you need, or you want a bunch of counties put together, I recommend that you contact me directly to produce that for you. It doesn't take me long to do this and I'm glad to get the information out there. Just ask for it. Mike

There's more info on the website. ***************************************** The TPA still needs a four wheel drive vehicle. This list goes out to about 1600 people, so there is a fair chance that one of another of you will know somebody who may be able to give us a good deal or even make a donation. So, here is a description of our need: [*]Under $10K out the door [*]4wd [*]We need an off-road equipped vehicle; skid plates for crank-case as well as transfer case, grill guard, ball hitch....or we have to add these things after purchase [*]Good fuel efficiency [*]Good Consumer Report rating [*]Interior we won't be ashamed of, preferrably without residual smoke. [*]Able to haul three people and equipment into a river bottom and out again. [*]We don't care much about exterior eye-wash as we will inflict scratches and dents soon enough, so if it has gone through a hail storm that's probably all right....... if it isn't a rust bucket. We are a 501C(3) and that means we can accept a charitable donation. We know very few people can just give away a useful vehicle, so we'll pay up to the amount indicated, but every penny we spend on capital equipment is a penny we don't spend on doing what it is we need to do. So, help us find a replacement for that old and ugly but useful Jeep we used to drive. trm -- The following information is a reminder of your current mailing list subscription: You are subscribed to the following list: Trading Path Newsletter using the following email: southern-trails-l@rootsweb.com You may automatically unsubscribe from this list at any time by visiting the following URL: <http://www.tradingpath.org/cgi-bin/dada/mail.cgi/u/tradingpath/> If the above URL is inoperable, make sure that you have copied the entire address.

    3. (Mailing list information, including unsubscription instructions, is located at the end of this message.) __ Volunteer Help Solicitation Spr 2006 February 27th, 2008 TPA First Sunday Hike Reminder ********************************************* March 2008 FSH at Moorefields The hike begins at 2pm March 2nd and we'll be back at our cars by 4PM. Get there early enough to sign in. "Moorefields" was the summer home of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Alfred Moore (1755-1810) of Wilmington, NC. Edward Draper-Savage, a University of North Carolina French professor left the property to the public and it is now run by a foundation as a private historic site. The property is available for use by artists, campers, hikers and picnickers, as well as for conferences, weddings and receptions. Barry Jacobs, property manager and County Commissioner of the first water, makes Moorefields available to the TPA and for that we are extremely grateful. We don't charge for these hikes, but we sure hope you can find something to drop in the donation jar as these events consume a good deal of time and resources. In the past we have strolled along Seven Mile Creek, climbed around lands south and southwest of the historic housesite, and even poked around near Crabtree Creek, to the east. This coming Sunday we'll go west. We've been working for quite a bit on the lands around Thomas Hart's "Hartford" to the west of Moorefields. Hart was the son-in-law of the first title owner of the land that became Moorefields, a man named Gray, owner of "Grayfields". We have reason to believe, mainly fromt he alignment of certain roads known to be quite old, that Hartford and Grayfields were connected in two or more ways. We'll look at some old roads on the Moorefield lands to see what we can see. Certainly we'll see daffodils and arrow leaf, and maybe we'll see some ginger. There'll be the usual impressive trees and old dumps and at least a couple of nifty old roads. How much of what we'll see was from the will of Judge Moore and how much reflects that of the French professor we cannot say. Just pondering the question, though, I assure you will be a good way to spend a late winter afternoon. [*]If you travel toward Hillsborough on Interstate 85, take the 165 exit and go north on Highway 86 toward Hillsborough for about 100 yards, then turn left on Mayo Street. If you travel on Interstate 40, use exit 266 and turn north on Highway 86 toward Hillsborough, and about 100 yards past Interstate 85 turn left on to Mayo Street. [*]Take Mayo to a "T" intersection at Orange Grove Road and at that intersection turn left on to Orange Grove Road. [*]Drive south on Orange Grove Rd, pass under I-85 and then drive over I-40. Just past the I-40 overpass there will be a stop light at Grady Brown School Rd. At this light turn right. [*]Drive west on Grady Brown School Road until you reach a "T" intersection with Dimmock Mill Road and there turn right. [*]Drive north on Dimmock Mill Road for roughly 150 yards and at the first left turn, turn left on to Moorefield Road. [*]Drive west on Moorefield Road for a bit over a quarter of a mile, to where the road makes a 90 degree turn to the left, and at that point the gate into Moorefields will be on your right. [*]Turn right into Moorefields. We will put out all of our signs to guide you in. Scroll down to a topo map. We hope to see you next Sunday. -- The following information is a reminder of your current mailing list subscription: You are subscribed to the following list: Trading Path Newsletter using the following email: southern-trails-l@rootsweb.com You may automatically unsubscribe from this list at any time by visiting the following URL: <http://www.tradingpath.org/cgi-bin/dada/mail.cgi/u/tradingpath/> If the above URL is inoperable, make sure that you have copied the entire address.

This project, if 'creeks don't rise,' will begin on February 26th. The map to the right shows the area of the inventory and it shows the two forks of the Little River entering Durham County from the left/west and merging to become the Little River about a third of the way into the image. The inventory will end at Highway 501. The four black dots indicate where we'll park cars during the inventory and there should obviously be one more dot near Highway 501. We will enter the river course afoot and walk the banks looking for human impositions on the natural landscape. In particular we expect to find and map heretofore unnoticed: fish dams, dam and mill sites, fords, bridges, and (of course) roads. The object of the survey is find all stream crossings so that we can estimate the location of early infrastructure long since abandoned. We can use at least one more body on the team that will do the mapping, so if you feel able to stumble over river rock for a full day and can assist, please, let us know. Though we have never done a project quite like this before, we estimate that these field days will be arduous. We plan to spend four days in the field on this project, but we may need to add a day in the event that we find this river to be a particularly rich site. As with travel through these parts in pre-modern times, weather will stop us dead in our tracks as we are studying the bottom of the stream as much as the slopes leading down to the bottom; the least rain may stop us. Many of you will recall that it was on the Little River in the vicinity of Little River Regional Park on the Orange-Durham border (at the uppermost black dot) that we found the only "tub" mill we have ever recorded. Owing to a computer crash we have since lost these GPS points, so we will take particular care when we approach that rich, rich mill zone to find that artifact one more time. As can be noted in the photo above, when stone dams crumble they generally leave a visible mess. We expect to map several of these rubble-fields. TPA Volunteer to Create Our County Chapter Program in 2008 Rebecca Fletcher, a student at UNC-G will develop and institute a plan for recruiting TPA chapters at the county level. These chapters will, in time, become active participants in the TPA mission. For example, should the TPA go into the Land Trust business to hold troublesome small parcel easements so as to protect short road remnants, we believe our county chapters will make it possible for us to perform our stewardship at an acceptable cost. A subcommittee of the TPA Board of Directors is examining the pros and cons of land trust development and will make a recommendation about this prospect by May. To give us some idea of how well these initiatives may be received at the county level in North Carolina, we welcome your feedback. If you are interested in assisting with this project in your county, let us know by writing to info@tradingpath.org. In the accompanying photo we see the youngest Fletcher making a break for freedom during one of our hikes. Twice Weekly Field Sorties Start in February At the last TPA Board Meeting Tom Magnuson announced that the entire TPA staff will take two afternoons a week to simply get out in the woods. These outings are health related but also will serve as training moments and will allow the TPA to fulfill at least part of its pro bono commitment to map artifacts whenever and wherever they're found. For reasons of economy and because expending fuel getting to a place to exercise is too ironic, most of this mapping will take place within a few miles, perhaps a short bike ride, of Hillsborough. We have little fear of running out of objects for our work. We have been trying to capture the entire course of one channel of the Upper Trading Path, that portion of the Trading Path that came down off of Mount Tirzah, crossed both branches of the Flat River near Timberlake, NC, and enters Orange County as Highway 57 and we're getting close to our goal. There are a couple of segments yet to be mapped on the lower end of Mount Willing Road at the Alamance County line, and between the Eno River and Strouds Creek northwest of Hillsborough, rising eastward from Maddocks Mill, heading toward the Eno Meeting site. We will welcome assistance on these outings but may have to limit the group on any given day. We'll post the proposed outing days on the website as soon as we find time to create the new section. The map to the right shows some of the work we've done on this road line in the vicinity of the Eno. We will start our regimen by scouring the lands in the vicinity of the "Hypothetical Road Line", trace the remnants of that road as we find them, and then move southwest to capture the remnants near the Alamance County border. TPA Volunteer Coordinator Sought We have an impressive list of volunteers under-used to a fault. So we would like one of those volunteers to step forward and assume responsibility for organizing and coordinating both volunteers and volunteer activities. Our volunteer cadre are located all over the state so it matters little where the coordinator resides; all activities will be launched and directed via the internet. So, if you can commute from home and don't mind emailing and scheduling events with strangers, please, contact Tom at the TPA office (info@tradingpath.org, 919-644-0600) and help us harvest some volunteer hours. Board Members and field survey folk, event volunteers and all other volunteers should keep track of the hours and mileage they expend on TPA work. The TPA can use these hours as matches against some grants so they have great value to us beyond the work performed in those hours. Our new coordinator will also probably gather such statistics for us. Please, if you have an hour or so per week, step up. Next and Last First Sunday Hikes March First Sunday Hike at Moorefields March 2nd we'll meet at Moorefields southwest of Hillsborough, NC. Moorefields is a private historic site, a wonderful old plantation house that sits astride the Great Central Coast Road, or did so when that road still existed, long ago. The current house replaced the original structure known as "Grayfields", the site of the first court meeting in Orange County. The location of that original house site remains a mystery that we would sorely like to resolve. This year we'll be looking for some road remnants originally linking Grayfields with "Hartford," Thomas Hart's planned community near Efland, NC. As Thomas Hart married the Master of Grayfields' daughter we believe there will be some more or less direct links between the two sites. Construction of Interstates 85 and 40 have broken the continuity of any old roadways between those sites but maybe there will be sufficient terrain relief to preserve some of the old marks. Though it is likely that the DOT wiped out any vestige of Grayfields hope will keep us looking until we've examined every inch of land at this wonderful old site. We enjoy every hike at Moorefields, and we do them just about annually. If memory serves, last year we were caught by a rain squall that turned the parking area into a quagmire and gave us all an opportunity to help our neighbor. If the weather looks inclement, we'll find alternative parking arrangements. And, as Moorefields is well hidden and far from the beaten path, we have never hiked here without some would-be attendees getting lost looking for the site. Each year we try a different map. Here's this year's offering: To find Moorefields, click on the Moorefields link (above) for a very vague map that will get you into the vicinity. Click on the topo map to the left for a larger image of the easiest route in to the hike site. February First Sunday Hike to be in Duke Forest's Hillsborough Division west of Hillsborough and the Eno River We met at Duke Forest west of Hillsborough for our February First Sunday Hike. Our weather couldn't have been better. It being Superbowl Sunday, as usual, we had great attendance. About 60 folks showed up, nobody got lost. Obviously, it was an age diverse assembly. An I hope it is equally obvious that it was a good day. Thank you all for coming out, bringing your kids, and sticking around long enough to let us know you enjoyed the outing. Upcoming Events March 25th, Lexington, NC Great Wagon Road Meeting The Trading Path Association will host a meeting of planners, economic development, and tourism officials and historians from the counties through which the Great Wagon Road (GWR) once passed. This is the kick off meeting for the creation of a Great Wagon Road Migration Trail that will follow the route of the GWR from Virginia through North Carolina to South Carolina. The GWR, purchased from the Iroquois in 1744, came into use about the time that North Carolina finally began to clear its many conflicted land titles thus making the land suitable for secure settlement. It may have been the channel through which most of the Old North State's settlers made their way south from Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and points north. Southern Campaigns of the American Revolution (SCAR) Battlefield Tour, March 29th The Corps of Discovery of SCAR, in cooperation with the Sons (SAR) and Daughters (DAR) of the American Revolution has organized a car tour of three Revolutionary War sites (two battlefields and a British Army camp site) for March 29th. We will visit Clapps Mill battlefield, Pyles Defeat/the Hacking Match site, and the area where General Cornwallis camped his army (around Alamance Battleground). Each stop will have an expert interpreter to walk participants through the events and Tom Magnuson will be along to tie things together. This is an all day event and as the date approaches we'll provide more details. We know now that we'll meet in the morning at Lake Macintosh, near the Clapps Mill monument. We have a general idea of how we'll handle lunch. And we know how we'll end the day, but details need to be firmed up before announcing more. As the date approaches you'll probably be able to get detailed information at the SCAR website. Meanwhile, the TPA will post the latest information on its Events list as well. ************************* Upcoming Public Talks March 15th, Union County Public Library, Monroe, NC At 10:00 Saturday morning, March 15th, Tom will give a presentation about colonial transportation technology and some of the old roads of Union County with special emphasis on the Lancaster-Charlotte Road. Click the link above for location, phone and so forth. We may find time to mount a map on our website events calendar but don't bank on it. April 3rd, Oxford, NC, NC Humanities Forum talk for the Granville County Genealogists At 6:30 PM, Thursday, April 3rd Tom will speak to the Granville County Genealogical Society at the R.H. Thornton Library in downtown Oxford. The talk will be on colonial transportation with emphasis given to certain old roads and stream crossings in Warren, Granville, and Franklin Counties. As a Humanities Council event, this talk is open to the public. May 10th, Carrboro, NC, Annual DOGs Show May 10th at the Town of Carrboro Century Center at the corner of Main and Hillsborough Streets Tom will hold a workshop of sorts for the Durhams-Orange Genealogical Society's (DOGS)annual day-long show and tell. At this event genealogists and historians, amateur and professional show off their work and make themselves available to the public to answer questions about their work in particular but also about research in general. This is a a public even As a "Road Scholar" for the NC Humanities Council, Tom will go anywhere in the state of North Carolina to speak on transportation and migration in the colonial backcountry of the southeast. Paid for with grants from the Humanities Council (www.nchumanities.org), these talks must be open to the public, so we'll announce here and on our website (under "Events") whenever we have a talk scheduled.

    1. [SOUTHERN-TRAILS] Itawamba County Mississippi
    2. Bohorfoush, Louis C.
    3. My Great-Great-Grandfather, Elias R. Googe, was born in 1845 in Appling County in Southeast Georgia. In the mid 1850's, they migrated to Itawamba County in Northeast Mississippi. I have found myself wondering why they left Georgia for Mississippi and what route they might have taken to get there. It has also occurred to me that they might have even passed through Jefferson County Alabama, where I live now. I have already found that another ancestor settled in this county in the early 1800's.

Drive toward Highway 70 on that connector as the gate into Duke Forest at that point is on a one way road. We have permission from Duke Forest to park inside the gate to get as many people as possible off of the highway. For a larger image of the map to the left, click on it. We're finding this to be an increasingly interesting site. We believe much of what we'll see on Sunday was once part of "Hartford," a community planned by Thomas Hart, a crony of Governor Tryon, Edmund Fanning, and Judge Henderson (of Louisa and Transylvania Company fame). Plotting the road remnants in the area now indicates the existence of a major 18th century road nexus, perhaps, atop a pre-wagon infrastructure. Recently the North Carolina DOT erected a historical marker near hear to note a Revolutionary War engagement at Hart's mill. The map to the right shows some of the mapping we've done in the area. It appears from this mapping that several modern roads that are truncated or bent inexplicably once converged on the this site. And it that isn't enough, Thomas Hart Benton played all over this land in his youth, before he was thrown out of UNC and his family moved west. You'll recall that he achieved everlasting fame for brokering the Missouri compromise in an attempt to avoid civil war. How he found himself to be a senator from Missouri is another wonderful story tied to the old landmarks at Hartford. One of these days, maybe we'll locate his childhood home. Meanwhile, just poking around this area is sufficiently exciting. Join us from 2 until 4 in a stroll on some of English America's oldest roads. The hike will be on relatively smooth land, with only mild slopes. There are, though, no prepared trails as such. Be prepared for uneven terrain. During the 2 hour walk we will cover about 1.5 miles. Stout shoes with good ankle support are recommended. We look forward to seeing you on Superbowl Sunday afternoon. trm -- The following information is a reminder of your current mailing list subscription: You are subscribed to the following list: Trading Path Newsletter using the following email: southern-trails-l@rootsweb.com You may automatically unsubscribe from this list at any time by visiting the following URL: <http://www.tradingpath.org/cgi-bin/dada/mail.cgi/u/tradingpath/> If the above URL is inoperable, make sure that you have copied the entire address.

The first of these will be the Great Wagon Road. This will be a proof of product project to debug the method to be used and demonstrate feasibility. We will engage historians, tourism, economic development, and other planning persons in every county along each trail. They will basically define their assets. The TPA will develop the over-all trail and assist as needed with reconciling interpretations. This promises to be a wonderful project, a great challenge and an excellent opportunity for the TPA. Once we've demonstrated and debugged the process of development we believe we'll be able to apply the process to almost every North Carolina county as we have thus far identified at least a dozen old trade routes that evolved into migration routes into the Old North State ranging from the Dismal Swamp Trail of the Quakers and Green's Path and the Great Central Coast Road in the East, to the Unicol Trail and Rutherford's Trail in the west, with a handful of Occaneechi, Catawba, Waxhaw, Cheraw, and Saura Trails in between. If you are aware of an old trade route in your county, advocate for it with us and, eventually, with your county politicos and economic development folk. Heritage tourism is without a doubt the best bang for the buck economic development available for most NC counties. TPA to Enroll County Chapters in 2008 In 2008, if we can acquire interns to assist with the project, the TPA will institute a county chapter program in which we will enroll TPA chapters at the county level. These chapters will, in time, become active participants in the TPA mission. Included in chapter membership will be training in finding and reporting road elements and so forth. If you are interested in assisting with this project in your county, let us know by writing to info@tradingpath.org. "Fords and Mills", Exploring NC, February 14th Features TPA This year celebrate Valentine's Day by watching Exploring NC. Tom Earnhardt's wonderful series about North Carolina places will feature the TPA in a February 14, 2008 segment on "Fords and Mills." for much of the past spring and summer Tom Magnuson traveled around the piedmont with the Exploring NC crew showing them mills and fords from the Yadkin to the Neuse. We hope you'll tune in to "Exploring NC" on February 14th or one of its several repeat dates. Here's a picture of Tom Earnhardt admiring a pine-nut warehouse. Sponsor Acknowledgments Once again, our sponsors have demonstrated great generosity in the past month. To wit: ESRI provided a free upgrade for the software we use for mapping sites; Maptech provided us with the latest and greatest version of the software we use most of all for mapping, TerrainNavigator Pro; and Pace Development surprised us over the holidays with a $1000.00 donation. You will recall that Pace is the company behind "Lawson", the development outside Waxhaw, in Union County where we performed a study a couple of years ago. The executive summary of our report to Pace Development eventually became a booklet sketching the history of the land they developed. The object of that project was to provide new home owners with a sense of their new place. Apparently it worked. Thank you: Brian and Stephen Pace, ESRI, and Maptech. Pace Development Donor Maps Slightly Delayed For want of software our promised donor maps will be delayed, briefly we hope. We found that our Office 2000 just wasn't up to the task of publishing the reports we designed, so we're in the process of upgrading the software. We ought to have the new programs in hand in the next week........we hope. Last and Next First Sunday Hikes January First Sunday Hike On an Occaneechi Trail We met at "Oak Cliffs," (shown in picture to the left) the Hays family seat, a 19th century plantation on Hyco Creek in Halifax County, Virginia for our January FSH and it was a glorious day. The owners, George and Margaret Hays shared their beautiful, historic property with a herd of fifty people. We were gentle with the privilege. Weather couldn't have been better for a wonderful stroll into the past. We made our way down to Hyco Creek on and along side an 18th century roadbed. At the creek we saw railroad trestle abutments, wagon bridge abutments, and the remnants of a free stacked stone bridge abutment as well. We walked back out on an old railroad bed and ended the walk at the plantation house. We slowly made our way back to the cars, stopping to admire the family cemetery. With apologies for not identifying the hiker in the scarf, we see to the right Bethan, Pip and Jane obviously deep in concentration and conversation along the way. We owe member Bill Nichols a debt of gratitude for arranging this hike with his kin, the Hays family. February First Sunday Hike to be in Duke Forest's Hillsborough Division west of Hillsborough and the Eno River We will meet once again at Duke Forest west of Hillsborough for our February First Sunday Hike. This is a favorite spot filled with artifacts of early roads, quarries, cabins, and farmsteads. We've never hiked here that we didn't find something new. The meeting place is along the east-bound connector between Interstate 85/40 and Highway 70 near interchange 161 of the interstate. Exit the interstate and follow the connector northward. After about a half mile begin looking for Trading Path event signs. Click the map to the right for a larger image. Fo some time the TPA has been locating bits and pieces of what appears to have been one of the earliest trading paths in the southeast, a path that connected the Chesapeake with all of the Native American folk in the southeast. This path, later trail, later road crossed the Eno River several places above the great bend; at the future site of Maddocks Mill, at the future site of Fawcette Mill, at or Halls Mill and at least one or two spots farther upstream depending, it seems on water conditions and ultimate destinations. The most downstream crossing along the Haw River on this line was at Saxapahaw. The most upstream probably at Ossippi or even High Rock. The main line, though, ran down Highway 57 and Mount Willig Road in Orange County, Mount Willing Road in Alamance County and crossed the Haw at Cedar Cliffs. A variety of evidence indicates this Haw crossing is where John Lawson forded in 1701. We'll look at a portion of this venerable path/trail/road. The map to the left is a GIS representation of the mapping we've done on this line in Orange County. The brown lines are actual roadbed remnant. Other Upcoming Events Prizery - Reenacting Greene's Crossing of the Dan, February 8-9 In South Boston, VA on the 8th and 9th of February there will be a commemoration of General Greene's crossing of the Dan River. This is a two day event and includes dining opportunities, plays, reenactors, and static displays. It should be quite exciting. Information about this event can be found and tickets for the event can be arranged at the Prizery web site. Southern Campaigns of the American Revolution (SCAR) Battlefield Tour, March 29th The Corps of Discovery of SCAR, in cooperation with the Sons (SAR) and Daughters (DAR) of the American Revolution has organized a car tour of three Revolutionary War sites (two battlefields and a British Army camp site) for March 29th.

If you're interested in preparatory reading, you may want to review Wm Byrd's memoir of the surveyof the "Dividing Line" (1728). When he and the survey crew passed through this country they were quite desperate. The border crossed and recrossed the Dan River in this vicinity, and forage was so scarce the party almost lost their horses. This was rugged terrain then and it remains so. Fortunately, this hike is pretty gentle. Though we'll push a few bushes aside, for the most part the hike is on old road and old railroad bed. The Hays family has agreed to open their home for the comfort of hikers so the remoteness of this site is mitigated by at least that amount. Add to that the apparent importance of the crossings we will view and you have a pretty good excuse to come out and play in the woods. You can reach the meeting place by way of Highways 119 (north to Highway 501 and then south to the meeting site), Highway 501 (north from 85 at Durham), or Highway 96 (northwest out of Oxford, then turn south on 501). See the website for maps and more details. There will be TPA signs to guide you in to the meeting place. Photo Contest A Preserrvation Photography Competition themed on Heritage Corridors will be part of Orange County, NC's celebration of National Historic Preservation Month (May 2008). Sponsored by the Orange County Historic Preservation Commission and the Historical foundation f Hillsborough and Orang County, the contest will accept entries from all ages and skill levels. The goal is to celebrate and protect heritage. Go to the Orange County website, click on "News Releases" in the left column of the page and then scroll down to "Heritage Corridors" for a full description of the contest. Obviously, the contest is all about preserving some of the visual reminders of our past by capturing them with cameras. It is also about showing the public the many wonderful remnants in their midst. So, if you have any inclination whatsoever to frame a shot. Bring your camera to bear on our trading paths, our corridors to the past. Entries will be accepted from the middle until the end of April, 2008. February 8-9: Commeration of Greene's Crossing of the Dan South Boston, VA will commemorate the 227th anniversary of General Greene's safe passage over the Dan River on February 8th and 9th. The crossing culminated his Race to the Dan with General Cornwallis, and it arguably marked the end of British hopes in the south, though it would take a bit more than a month to bring that truth home at the Battle of Guilford Courthouse. South Boston's new art center and museum, The Prizery is in and of itself worht seeing, so plan on making the trek two months in a row; once for our hike and once for the Race to the Dan commemoration. New Corporate Sponsors We have two new corporate sponsors and we urge you to show them your appreciation in whatever way you can. Carolina Maps By Mail is now a corporate sponsor as is the Pace Development Group. Both companies are resident in Charlotte. Chuck Ketchie, owner of Carolina Maps by Mail is an old friend of the organization and he has agreed to keep us in maps to the best of his ability. You can imagine how many maps we go through here. No matter how careful we are, paper tears, coffee spills, and folding and refolding breaks down even the toughest maps, so Chuck's generosity is essential to our work. He is the sole source for Garland Stout's historic maps of North Carolina counties and his prices are very reasonable. He also buys surveyor plat collections and has excellent collections of local surveys for various areas. Visit his website, bookmark the page and stock up on maps to occupy the days too gloomy for chasing around in the woods. Pace Development, you may recall, engaged the TPA to study the history of the land where they are building "Lawson" a large development in Union County, NC. Since submitting that report we have held a first Sunday hike on the Lawson land and we are now delighted to have this former client as a corporate sponsor. Visit their website and see the work they're doing at "Lawson" and elsewhere. If you know Stephen or Brian Pace, the father and son team who run the Pace Development Group, tell them you appreciate their ongoing support of the TPA. trm -- The following information is a reminder of your current mailing list subscription: You are subscribed to the following list: Trading Path Newsletter using the following email: southern-trails-l@rootsweb.com You may automatically unsubscribe from this list at any time by visiting the following URL: <http://www.tradingpath.org/cgi-bin/dada/mail.cgi/u/tradingpath/> If the above URL is inoperable, make sure that you have copied the entire address.

We hope you'll tune in to "Exploring NC" on February 14th or one of its several repeat dates. Last and Next First Sunday Hikes January First Sunday Hike On an Occaneechi Trail We will walk along a long abandoned channel of a wagon road that once connected "Moccasin Gap" (modern Roxboro, NC) with South Boston, VA on the Dan River. As can be seen in the accompanying maps, there were a number of routes from the south to the Dan River crossings. The one we'll visit is one of the better preserved. From left to right the maps are Colllet (1770), Mouzon (1775), and Price-Struthers (1808). As usual, we will meet at the trail head in time for a short briefing and a 2:00 PM departure. We'll be back at the parking area by 4:00 PM. From the east you may approach the site along Highway 96 and from the north or south you may approach from Highway 501 going north above Roxboro, NC. From the west Highway 158 to Highway 501 may be the best bet, or Highway 49 and then south from South Boston along Highway 501. The topo maps (left and right) offer some place names and other locational information. The above topo is a 1:100K image of the area between Roxboro, NC and South Boston, VA and showing some of the original route lines since changed to accommodate high speed vehicles. The topo to the left is a 1:24K image showing where we will meet. Click either of these image to see larger, legible maps. There are directions on the TPA website and we'll post a map link there shortly too. December Fist Sunday Hike at High Rock Ford on the Haw River Our December hike took place in brisk air, under a sunny sky. It was grand. Thanks to the cooperation of Hodgins Bynum, the TPA had a chance to view some old roads heretofore unnoted approaching High Rock Ford from the south. Just a few years ago the remnants of the road in the Bynum yard were cobbled. You can still see the course of the road and the intersection just east of the crest where Mr. Bynum located his beautiful home. Bob Carter, noted Rockingham County historian joined us and explained what we were seeing when we visited the old mill site now owned by the Rockingham County Historical Society (see the photo to the left). In the photo to the right, Dr. Sam Powell, President of the North Carolina Sons of the American Revolution and long-time TPA Board Member, admires what was probably the find of the day, an iron tire off of a buggy wheel. There is no telling how long that old tire lay under the leaves waiting for Sam to gasp and grab it. It was just one of many memorable moments from this hike. Kings Highway Park Gets Approval of NCDOT: More Work Required One of the TPA's ongoing projects, the longest lived one for sure is the development of "Kings Highway Park" (KHP) for the Town of Hillsborough. The park was wasteland to the west of Hillsborough before the TPA decided to build a park just to see if it could be done. The TPA advocates that local governments turn heritage landscapes into tourism assets and KHP is an example of what can be done. When it is complete KHP will have cost the town something under a pittance, certainly less than $2500 (unless the Town splurges on signage). The park now has two hiking trails, a vista point, an interpretive kiosk and, and several sets of stairs at a cost of $500. This winter we will add a picnic site and table, another vista point with bench, and an off road parking area. We recently met with a representative of North Carolina's Department of Transportation who gave us permission to walk under a bridge to connect portions of the park on two sides of a high speed road.
