Queens Creek empties into the James River just south of the Charles City Co courthouse. Your Matthews lived 3 miles south of the courthouse according to the 1815 Land Tax records.
Here is a good interactive map of the county. You can zoom in to the area just below the courthouse. Queens Creek starts just east of the courthouse and winds east and then south into the James River. It also continues on the SW side of the courthouse just north of "Olds Point House" up to Route 5 (John Tyler Memorial Hwy.) The creek is NOT labeled with a name on this map, but that is the location I show on my Charles City County map prepared by the VA Dept. of Transportation 1401 East Broad Street in Richmond that I got years ago.
