I visited this site
in April 1901, with Bill & Ray Pettus, and Ralph & Carolyn
Bagley. Carolyn descends from the Davis family.
The driveway is passable
only at the highway. Much undergrowth and it is difficult to walk.
The only visable remains of the place are a brick base of a chimney
or part of the foundation, and a fallen very large oak that had
been a trademark of the place. Further into the thicket, going
parallel with the main road #681, is the cemetery listed in Munsey
Moore's Cemetery and Tombstone Records of Mecklenburg Co.,
VA., v1, p163.
The Cemetery could
be more easily reached from the house at 1836 Fort Mitchell Road,
occupied by Valeria Salowski in 1901.
A photograph of the
house no longer standing would be a welcomed addition to this
page. - JoLee Gregory
