In a deposition given by him in 1798 “at the forks of Nolin (mouth of South Fork Creek) about 300 yards above Mr. Hodgen’s Mill” he says that he was at the very place in April, 1780, in company with a certain Joseph Farly; and that “they went to the head of this creek and saw other forks, but none so large as this.”
