In 2000, the late Carter Thompson pointed out this house as the Willie Marable (Afr.American) house on Lee's
Mill Rd, and I took some photos from the road. We tried to go up the drive to the place, but there was a gate preventing our going all the way. I felt the house was probably built before Willie Marable was an adult, so have wondered if it was originally the Hartwell Marable (white) place on Lee's Mill Road. There appeared to be a cemetery on the place, but we couldn't get to it.

Does anyone know anything about this house, or have deeds that would help? If anyone has the deed of Hartwell Marable that has measurements, I could map it and get a better idea.

Below is link to a picture of the house and coordinates for locating the homesite on a Google map.
