In Reply to: Peter Guice Bridge by Wanda Case of 259

From "The Heritage of Henderson County North Carolina Volume 1, 1985", "Peter Guice built the first bridge over Green River on the Howard Gap Road. This was a wooden structure which he operated as a toll bridge. Peter operated a way station or Tavern. He had pens for the drovers, for hogs, sheep, cattle and other livestock, and a campground for the tavelers. The Howard Gap Road was the main road from South Carolina through North Carolina to Tennessee. Peter Guice and his family prospered in their bridge and way station business because of the location". This is Peter, b. 10 November 1788, son of Phillip and Nancy Guice.
