Summary
"This is the second volume of an American history series that chronicles the passage of a group of English and Scotch-Irish pioneers through a series of frontiers, beginning at Jamestown, Virginia, next up the Potomac River, then inward to the Virginia Piedmont, later westward to Kentucky and finally into the heartland of Missouri. This second volume traces the movement of those pioneers from the Potomac Path between Dogue Creek and the Occoquan River inland to the region of the Virginia Piedmont, which laid up the Ox Road at the intersection of the Colchester and Carolina Roads, known today as Gilbert's Corner, and along the drains of Little River of Goose Creek, including Owsley's Branch. It focuses on the human network of families inter-connected by blood or marriage with the names Smarr, West, Owsley, Hall, Stephens, Ellzey, and Peake. It also explores other English families of the Potomac Path who bought land in the Little River region of the Piedmont including Carter, Mercer, Washington, Fairfax, Cocke, Green, Marshall, Wade, and Bayley." -- page xxviii
