Alexander Stinson's Property -- Today!

Here are images showing Alexander Stinson, Sr.'s three deeded lots in S.W. Buckingham County as they appear today. I created these images using two computer applications, Deed Mapper and Google Earth. You can right click on any of the images and save them to your computer.

It's difficult to see, but the image above (see the pink outline) shows the 400-acre property deeded to Alexander on November 25, 1743. There appears to be a small farm on the north end. State Route 600 runs through the property with an entrance to the farm. State Route 654 runs through the Northwest part of the property.

Five years later, on July 20, 1748, Alexander acquired this property (above) consisting of 385 acres. It lies immediately to the West of and adjacent to the 400 acres shown before. Cattail Creek runs East-West through both properties.

Also on July 20, 1748 Alexander recieved this property (above) consisting of 395 acres. It's not contiguous with the other two deeds and lies a short distance to the Northwest. Willis Mountain is just outside of the picture to the North. Note that Route 15 and State Route 600 run through the property.

Finally, to give some perspective, this image (above) shows where in Buckingham County the properties lie.
