Fishing Creek is named and located on even the oldest of maps. My Ancestors, Ralph Mason (Sr and Jr), Foster and Mark all held land on both sides of Fishing Creek. They discussed it and used it as a boundary when describing their plantation lines. They were in error when they described it as emptying into the Moruttuck River, which is actually the Roanoke and doesn't actually converge with Fishing Creek until they meet in Martin County. There is a branch on the older maps which names Mason's Branch and is available in family history libraries. Did you have ancestors in the Fishing Creek area? I am looking for more information on my ancestor Ralph and his wife Saran( ). Also on Mark Mason and his spouse Elizabeth Arrington, daughter of Arthur Arrington and Mary West.
