Thank you William. I was hoping to find the land that Thomas Graves lived on before he purchased the 400 acres on the north bank of the North Anna in 1730. He was already 'of Spotsylvania' by that time. If William Pettus' home was described as overlooking the North Anna, that fits the 400-acre site which was about a half mile upstream from the county road 601 bridge. It is now mostly covered by the lake. The deed from John Graves to William Pettus was for 399 acres, so I though maybe, just maybe, it was the original homesite. I appreciate your help. Good luck on your book.
