Mecklenburg Co., VA Store Accounts

    Copied from the original by JoLee Gregory Spears
Part 1 Ledger 1808-1809 believed to be "Richard Boyd's Store"
Part 2 Yates & Knight Shop Book   October 1821 & 1822"

     Any information to pin point this old store will be welcomed by
     the submitter.  I believe the store was along the South Fork of the
     Meherrin River, possibly in the vicinity of "Cox's Old Mill" on 
     early maps, or in the area of "Mill Grove"  The establishment's 
     clientele included residents of Mecklenburg, Lunenburg, and some 
     in Charlotte County.
     This old ledger survived for generations in the attic of the
     John Gregory home place in Lunenburg, near Mt. Zion Church.
     It is, I believe, the accounts of "Boyd's Store" mentioned in
     some land boundaries.  The minutes of the Lunenburg Co., VA Meherrin 
     Baptist Church 1771-1844 show the boundary changes from 
     time to time.
     Page 110,111 "1st Saturday in Sept 1809...Bro. Ellis stated to 
     the Church that he had been requested by some of the Reedy Creek 
     Members, to request our Church to deligate some of our members, 
     to attend at their next Meeting for the purpose of regulating 
     the boundery lines between the two Churches, Brethren, Wm. 
     Hatchett, Ro. Saunders, [page 111] and John Brown, 
     delegated for the aforesaid purpose - The Lords Supper administered 
     by Elder Dabbs -
                                     Richd Dabbs Mo    
                                     Tho. B. Ellis Clk,"
     "At a Meeting held for Maherrin Church on Saturday the 30th of 
     Sept 1809. Elder James Shelburn & Brethren Jas. Robertson, John 
     Allin & Wm. Ellis, attended being Deligated for the purpose of agreeing 
     on the dividing lines between the two Churches, It was agreed that 
     from R. Boyds Store (or Coxes old place) That it shall run on Waltons 
     Old Road, till it comes to Ellis's pathway, thence along said path by 
     Wm. Ellis's & so on to Robertsons Mill on Middle Maherrin Thence 
     up said River to Parsons Old Mill where it strikes the same Old 
     Road again, Thence along sd Road to the big Road at Wm. Crenshaws, 
     (formerly a Store kept there by said Crenshaw) thence, the Road 
     leading from that place to Elisha Almonds Thence along the Richmond 
     Road to the boundery line of Mossingford - "

     Further reference to Boyd's Store:
     "Chase City & Its Environs" refers to a Drury Allen Bacon deed 1817/18 as 
     tract that "lay along the road from Christiansville [note: present Chase 
     City/js] to Boyd's Store on Meherrin River; down Finneywood Creek & adj. 
     Widow Jones' dower land."
     One of numerous deeds of John Cox of Finneywood:
     Mecklenburg DB 7:248; 1787 John Cox of Finneywood in Co. of Meck to David Stokes 
     of Mecklenburg 220 a. on branches of Finneywood Creek & S. fork of Meherrin R., 
     part of tract sd John Cox now lives.  Lines: Colo. Burwell, Gregory's line, 
     sd Stokeses line.
