Green Oak Farm located in the Sterling Heights area of the county and along the shore of the Chickahominy River. Patent dated 21 Oct 1687 to Thomas Christian for 1080 acres in Weyanoke Parish, on the south side of Store's (Stoney) Run, crossing Black Gutt to the Chickahominy River may well have been the patent for this farm. Formerly called "Cherry Bottom", this land is thought to have been passed down in the family, by wills, through the Christian family to the present time. According to Bruce B. James, who lives on this property, there is a family cemetery, as well as a slave cemetry to the rear of the old home.
