Here is the district enumeration for 1900 Spotsy Census. Can anyone tell me where Telegraph Road was, or the "County Rd"
If anyone has a link to an old map of Spotsylvania I would appreciate it.

I'm researching the
Row(e)
Tolby
Kent
Humphries
and Estes (the old Greenfield Plantation)families

Here's the list:
