This is a view of the Cheat River running north and south.

Route No. 50 runs east and west across the top over the Cheat River.

Route No. 72 runs north and south

Route No. 72 is on the very western edge of “Lead Mine” which is under Route 50 on Route No. 38

Route No. 50 runs straight through to Winchester via Capon Bridge.

The following could be any where along the Cheat River; but I found this interesting because of the  other connections to mining by the HERLINS.

    We have emailed thru ancestry in past years, but in order to keep this going, and for me to try to assist you with Robert Kerlin, email me at gbk@vnf.com. Who did you get the info from about a Jacob Herlin? In 1761 Augusta and Rockinham did run alot further north. Frederick was culled out of Augusta. Winchester and Cedar Creek are next door to one another so the 1810 census makes sense. the large influx of Quakers in Hopewell helped to settle the area in the 1750s-onward, and I have my Joseph Kerlin with his children James, Joseph, and Peter being in Bullskin Creek north of Winchester in 1781-1785. I know you have deed work with Robert’s name on it. Is it here somewhere on the site? Let me know. thanks.
