..."O my heart sickens at the thought of former times when the candle of the Lord shone upon us. When I used to ride to Bethlehem & Rocky Creek and you to Hepzibah 15 miles apart..."
These words were written by my g.g.grandfather, Rev. James Willson, in 1861. The full text of the letter can be seen at http://www.grummpville.com/genealogy.htm#James%20Willson%20Letters
This would seem to indicate that "Hepzibah" was about fifteen miles from either Bethlehem or Rocky Creek or both.
