Dividing Swamp & Horsepen Creek Location

Can anyone identify the locations of Dividing Swamp and Horsepen Creek? And maybe direct me to a map or draw me one? I know they are located in the extreme
se portion of Spotsylvania Co, below Partlow.
In 1849, the bank of the North Anna River was described as being 57 poles below the mouth of Horsepen Creek.
In the same 1849 deed, after a meander up the North Anna,
one reached the mouth of Dividing Swamp. Then up Dividing Swamp with its meander along Patton's line.
A modern map show three longish creek/rivers flowing into
the North Anna but the creeks/rivers aren't clearly identified as to name. The creek/river nearest the Caroline Co. line may be called Wildlife Run, but I'm not sure.
