Can anyone tell me what part of Pee Dee River is closer to the Lilesville or Jonesboro area of early Lincoln Co NC

I have found the transcription of 3 deeds that mention a man named Henry Meachum with 2 men named Thomas (on one deed) and Shadrach Denson (on 2 deeds) and I am trying to figure out which Henry or Henry's this is seeing there was 5 there at the time Henry b 1766 who married Nancy Smith and their son Henry H b 1795 so he could of been one of the ones for the later deed

2nd Henry who's wife we dont know who had sons Jeremiah H and Henry H they interchanged the spelling form Meachum to Mitchum these 2 sons where to young to have been on deed

and then Rev Henry Meachum who moved away to Tennessee/Mississippi

these deeds are in Feb 1811, March 1812 and Dec 1815 all on the west or southwest side of the Pee Dee River oen even says it is Pee Dee River on the waters of Jones Creek
1811 Henry to Shadrack Denson 1812
Shadrock Denson to Henry Meachum same land as in 1811
then 1815 Henry to Thomas Denson
Any help in identifying which Henry these are would be greatly appreciated
