Laura, If you are still out there, I just came accross your post. I am of the opinion that the place to which you refer was known as Princeton. It no longer exist as town, or port, or anything else other than farms. It was about 3 -4 miles up stream on the Meherrin river from Murfreesboro, NC. Princeton was roughly located where Vaughan's Creek joins with the Meherrin. I just now thought of this, but the Roanoke River makes up the boundry of the southwest side of Northampton. Early ocean going ship could venture up the Roanoke all the way to Roanoke Rapids on that river.
Hope this helps.
