Wilders Mill Branch is mentioned in two records I've seen cited:

"Nash Deed 9-122 12 Dec 1810 Duncan Cain, James Cain, Hardy Cain heirs of James Cain decd of Nash Co. to Lee Horn for $500 528 ac on Turkey Cr adj Wilders Mill Branch, Stricklin, John Edward Moore Esq 24 Sep 1785. /s/
D. Cain, James X Cain, Hardy Cain, Archd Cain, James X Lee. Wit. Alanson Powell, Edward Taylor, William Hobs, Jonathan Richardson. Recorded 1814."

(from http://files.usgwarchives.org/ms/amite/history/books/cain/cainc01.txt)

and

"Irvin Finch was a Justice of the Peace of Nash County in 1837. The 1852 tax list of Nash County listed Irvin Finch with 1497 acres of land and 10 slaves. A survey of consolidated lands made for Irvin Finch by Mc. Brantley, surveyor, was dated July 7, 1875. The total was 1161 acres on the Nashville Road and Wilson and Raleigh Road adjoining the heirs of Sion Sanders, the heirs of Benjamin Glover, W. R. J. W. Finch, the heirs of Wm. A. Glover, Mercity Vick, Abijah Griffin, Martha Finch, McBrantley, H. B. Finch, Ben Finch, and the Wilders Mill Branch. Reg. July 10, 1785 (Nash Count, North Carolina, Deed Book 22, page 251)."

Can anyone tell me where Wilders Mill Branch was located? Maybe it has another name now?
