Looking for info re a large crown grant to John Beale of 38,000 acres lying in three counties, Rockbridge, Botetourt and Beford on the south side of the James River about 5 miles west of Nat'l Bridge. Supposedly, this land was passed by deed to Light-horse Harry Lee, who in turn, deeded 400 acres of it to widow of Alex'd Moore, Elizabeth Moore, in 1803. --Joanne
