You had helped me some time ago when I asked about George Wray or Ray who sold land in 1769 on Quarrel Swamp in southeast Brunswsick co Va with a HEnry Yarbrough. I could not find a deed wherre George Wray and Henry Yarbrough bought the land. I finallyfound a deed from 1758 where a Henry Yarbrough bought the land on Quarrel Swamp or Creek but George Wray was not on the deed. I have no idea how Henry Yarbrough bought the land in 1758 and he and George Wraysold it in 1769. The same day George Wray bought a different piece of land from Henry Yarbrough.
George bought that land in 1769 and he received a patent on qauarrel Swamp in 1771. I am trying to find where on Quarrel Swamp George Wray's property was located. The deed descriptions say Quarreel Swamp at Rocky or Rockey Branch and Quarrel Swamp at Piney Slash and Quarrel Swamp at Ready or Reedy branch. I have looked at new maps and old maps but I can not find anymap taht shows any of these branches off Quarrel Swamp or Creek. Do you have any ideas about how I could find these locations. The reason I want to know is I am trying to find who the parents were of George Wray and I believe his father was Willliam Wray who owned land on Coldwater Run in the 1750's and the 1760's. Coldwater Run flows south off the Meherrin river and Quarrel Swamp or Creek looks like it almost connects near Coldwater Run. IF William Wray's land was near the southern end of Coldwater Run and George Wray's land was near the part of Quarrel Swamp that almost connects with Coldwater Run then they lived very close to each other. William Wraygave hisson Baker Wrayand wife Lucy land in a deed of gift in 1765. Theysold the land in 1769 to a Phipps. There is a Phipps Store on a map which is near Coldwater Run. George Wray sold his land in 1777 and bought land in 1778 in Bute co NC which became Warren co Nc in 1779. Baker Wray owned land in Warren co NC that joined George Wray's land in Warren co NC. they must have been related. Would you have any ideas about wherre I could find where these locations on Quarrel Swamp were located. Ross
