Kanawha Land Purchases
in the Mud River Area
After moving to the Mud River in Kanawha County, the Jordans acquired patented land and purchased privately-owned acreage. Although land patents in this area were covered under the same Northern Neck land surveys as in Greenbrier County, Kanawha surveys were far less detailed. Consequently, it is probably not possible to determine property lines or anything more than general location of these plots.
