Appendix A - Notes 2. Archibald WOODS ,of Woods Gap,Va Dunmore's War 1774 Woods, Archibald County: (Fincastle. ) Company Capt. Daniel Smith (D.W.) Record: p242 Soldiers of Fincastle County, Virginia (Dublin, Va., 1974) Compiled by Mary B. Kegley from original records in the Library of Virginia. Documentary History of Dunmore's War, 1774 (Madison, Wis., 1905) Edited by Reuben Gold Thwaites. Compiled from original records in the Draper Papers, Wisconsin Historical Society. "Tennessee Cousins"] Woods Gap was in Albemarle County near Augusta County, today it is called Jarman's Gap. This excerpt is from "History of Albemarle County, Virginia," by the Reverend Edgar Woods, written in 1900, republished in 1978. ********* P. 10 The roads received much attention. At that time [formation of Albemarle in 1745] they were not so much to be worked, as to be opened and cleared; and permission to this end was readily granted under the restriction, that they should not be conducted through any fenced grounds. John Henderson was summoned to show cause why a road should not be cleared through his land from the Three Notched Road [this road began near Richmond and ran west to Albemarle] to the Hardware River; that is, from near Milton to the vicinity of Mount Air. John Defoe was made Surveyor of the road from Number Twelve to Number Eighteen -- number used to designate the distance, probably from the courthouse to certain trees, as mention is subsequently made of the road from the late Secretary's Ford to Twelve Mile Tree. David Lewis was Surveyor of the road over Capt. Charles Lynch's Ford or Ferry; this was a road which ran from some point on the Three Notched Road near the University, over the shallows of the Rivanna, a short distance southeast of the Pen Park mansion, and down the west side of the South West Mountain. Andrew Wallace was Surveyor of the road from the D. S. to Mechum's River Ford - Archibald and Michael Woods, Jr. to assist in clearing it -- and William Woods from Mechum's River to Michael Wood's Gap on the BlueMountains [Blue Ridge]. Benjamin Wheeler was Surveyor from his place into the "Four Chopped Road" to Wood's Gap. William Harris petitioned for a road from his plantation on Green Creek to the South River - that is, the James -- on the lower side of Ballenger's Creek; and Robert Rose, Clerk, petitioned for one from his place on Tye River to Leake's, in the neighborhood of William Harris. The hands of Col. Richard Randolph, Rev. Mr. Stith and William Harris, were ordered to clear a road from the Green Mountain road near the head of Hog Creek, to the courthouse Road below Mr. Stith's Quarter. The tithables of the late Secretary at Clear-Mount -- which mush have been at Blemheim, or in that vicinity -- were directed to work on the road from James Taylor's Ford to Martin Kin's Road, that is, from below Carter's Bridge to Woodridge; and his servants living above the mountains, together with the inhabitants of Biscuit Run, were to keep the road from David Lewis's to the late Secretary's Mill. This mill was on the north fork of Hardware, a short distance above its junction with the south fork. Fry & Lynch were appointed to apply to the Louisa Court to continue the road over King's Ford on the Rivanna -- at Union Mills -- from the county line to Louisa C. H. These are a few instances of the care and energy devoted to this important project.
