Rutledge Creek near Rt. 86 and Rt. 29 expressway
Posted by: Donnie Noel (ID *****8293) Date: October 09, 2013 at 19:09:13

Jacob Stillwell bought 200 acres on Nov. 20, 1760 bordering William Wynne, Sr.
It was on the east branch of Rutledge Creek. Is this creek now known as Pumpkin Creek? Was the east branch the creek following Rt.58 East from Rt.86 towards the river?
The two branches join near Mowbray Arch as best as I can figure.
This seems to be about where the survey plat would compare with today's surroundings.
Can anyone help me confirm this? Thanks
Donnie Noel
