I was in the area in the mid 1980's. Gayle plantation was "on the Mississippi River, and bordering Sterling property, bounded by a bayou (creek) on one side.

The will of Christopher Gayle and his son-in-law Patrick Peck was in the court house at St. Francisville, where I read the original. Our family already had a typed copy.

There is an old, old cemetery in the area, but in a very isolated spot: I was traveling alone and did not attempt a trek into that back country alone. Some locals thought they could be buried there, but said many graves were unmarked.
