Musterfield Baptist Church and other names
Posted by: A. Sharp (ID *****7504) Date: November 07, 2007 at 17:13:08

Where was the Musterfield Baptist Church whose pastor was Leonard Baker? In 1819, Henry Throckmorton gave one acre of land for the church. Want to know the name of the church now using that acre.

Stewart/Stuart's Creek. This stream is mentioned as early as 1754 and as late as 1846. It is not now listed on any map or list (GNIS) of streams. What is it called now? In 1754, land was patented on the ridge between Stewart's and Difficult creeks.

Peter's Creek is mentioned in deeds 1800-1841, but now there are two such creeks in the GNIS list, but not listed on maps -- Peter Creek and Peters Creek.

Ferry locations?
Cargill's Ferry
Cardwell's Ferry
Blanke's Ferry
