Barbara's fourth great-grandfather, Samuel Upton, came from Massachusetts in 1764 and was awarded the plot numbered 27 on this map. It was intriguing that the plots were 40 rods (220 yards) wide and up to 7 miles deep. This insured that everyone had access to the river.
We happened to stay in a small campground in Sheffield associated with a country store and restaurant named Casey's.
While playing around with the map of land grants and some Google satellite imagery, we discovered that the campground just happened to sit right on the river end of Barbara's ancestor's land!
A short distance from Casey's store was this old house being reclaimed by the local vegetation.
