Thanks so much, George Thomas -
My James Watson Bradshaw & wife Sarah Morrison moved from Mecklenburg/Cabarrus Co, NC to the Blue Stocking Creek area of Bedford Co, TN about or just after 1812. His father James Bradshaw in 1788 had a 5,000 land grant with Charles McCommin & Amos Balch on Sugar Creek in what became Bedford Co,TN. James Bradshaw was the first Rep. from the new Cabarrus Co to the NC General Assembly, then Senator until his death in 1809 so didn't go to TN.
Having the details of his various NC land acquisitions is most helpful. AND I love the map. Did you draw it?
