For ten years now I’ve tried to identify where Falk’s Branch and Brake’s Branch were in Edgecombe County.
I’ll bet money on this:
Google “Wiggins Lake” or “Deloaches Creek” to see the modern area (Wiggins Lake did not exist in colonial era)
(bear with me, I’m still working on the map linked below)
Some foreground on George can be found at this link: http://www.tngenweb.org/records/henderson/cemeteries/g-ander.htm
Below is a section of the 1905 map…. the general area is highlighted… the reference to General Cox was my key to finding the mystery “Faulks Branch”…
The map below shows a couple of cemetaries that I am curious if anyone has seen and could comment on… they seem a possible site for Andersons or other kin.
