I love your story…your history is facinating! I am interested in a Jacob Boney who patented land in New Hanover/Duplin in 1754; he was on “wild horse branch” and in searching for his neighbors I find only three mentions of this geographic entity indexed in the Patent Book abstracts. Are you familier with this Jacob? his land? or the creek? Could “Wild Horse Branch” have been commonly called by some other name…I find a “Horse Branch” but cannot tie the two together.
