From: History and Genealogies of The Families of Miller, Woods, Harris, Wallace, Maupin, Oldham, Kavanaguh and Brown: By W. H. Miller. " p. 171.


William Cradlebough, a noted scout, woodsman and indian fighter went the same route,
Cradlebough was an unusually hardy, brave and adventurous spirit and well acquainted from Boonsborough to the Middle Fork of the Kentucky, and up the latter deep into the country seldom trodden by white men, and was one of the earliest pioneers, and who with Brooks and
Calloway, (Thomas Brooks and John Calloway) in 1780 had hunted and encamped for days and days, up the Middle Fork, and made and named Rock Back Encampment, Williams Creek, Cabin Creek were named by them, and Martin got much information from Cradlebough of the woods, the Little Picture Lick, and other Licks, the War Road and other traces, and of indian habits.


In Nov. or Dec. 1780, Cradlebough, Thomas Brooks and John Calloway,hunted and spied into the wilds of the Middle Fork and camped several days at a place on the south side of said fork, nearly opposite where one McWillard was living in 1805, and at this place they made a canoe in which they paddled up and down the river, and they cut on a beech tree the first or initial letters of their names: W. C. 1780, and J. C. and which they named Rock Back Encampment, and then about four miles above on the south side of the river at a Buffalo Lick on a branch near the mouth they marked "Brooks 1780," and F. C ." they camped in a bottom about four miles above the mouth of the creek, that they named Williams Creek because William Cradlebough whilst out hunting first found it, and here they encamped and cut down several trees, and cut on a tree the letters W. C. B. (but in 1805 this was called upper Twins) and on a creek they built a cabin and called the creek Cabin Creek. (which in 1805 was called Lower Twins.) At this place in an oak and beech they cut out cutlets, and their initial letters, which marks were there in 1805, the place is about three quarters of a mile up from the mouth of the creek.


When this party of three left Estill Station on this hunt they no doubt went the trace that led by Azariah Martins place, and the Little Picture Lick.


***In 1805 James McCormick and WILLIAM BRYANT were commissioned by the Court to take depositions to perpetuate testimony and with William Cradlebough went to Rock Back Encampment, and there commenced the taking of the deposition of Cradlebough, and adjournment from one to another of the Encampments of Cradlebough, Brooks and Calloway of 1780 made twenty five years prior thereto, and found the facts as Cradlebough had described to them two years previous, which their depositions and statements prove.


James McCormick then being on the Middle Fork, made this statement in writing:
In the fall of 1798 James Trabue applied to him to survey for him on the Middle Fork of the Kentucky, and furnished him with several entries, one calling for a Buffalo Lick at the mouth of a small creek on the north side with a tree marked thus "Brooks 1780" which tree and lick he saw the same fall and the marks that were on the tree appeared to be very old or old enough to have been marked at the same date. There were several entries that called for another encampment, called the Rock Back Encampment which by the direction of William Cradlebough he found at the same time with W. C. 1780, and J. C. 1780, cut on a small beech tree, which mark also appeared old enough for that date which Rock and Tree William Cradlebough this day swore to in his presence, also the bottom he surveyed for Daniel Trabue, with the trees fell down, was so well described by William Cradlebough, and the course of the river that he verily believed it to be the same bottom, notwithstanding the trees were rotted and gone, and being present with him in search of the bottom Aug. 12, 1805. James McCormick."

Notes


d.s.p. RICHARD WILLIS From A Place in Time, pages 208-209: In his early years, Churchill's network of debtors within the county was confined to the lower precinct between the Rappahannock and the road. South of the road, Matthew Kemp held sway, operating in both Middlesex and Gloucester from holdings on the lower Piankatank, with Richard Stevens and Robert Dudley having to him the same relationship as Mickleburrough had to Churchill. Robert Beverley, Christopher Robinson, and Richard Willis divided the rest of the county. (The Wormeleys of Rosegill had little part in these intracounty credit relationships after roughly 1680; with their own connections in England, they exported and imported largely for themselves.)


Notably, the connections abroad and within the county that allowed these hegemonies did not automatically pass from father to son as land and personalty did, but shifted from one planter-merchant to another. We will return to the point. Suffice it here to note that Beverley had fallen heir to the connections of John Burnham, a major planter-merchant of the 1670s who died in 1681. When Beverley died in 1687, Robinson's area of influence grew. When Robinson died in 1693, Churchill's influence spread from the lower precinct into the middle, while Gawin Corgin--Henry Corbin's son, now grown to manhood, with extensive relations both in Middlesex and England--entered the scene to take Robinson's place on the Rappahannock side of the county from the Essex boundary to just below Sunderland Creek. And when Willis died in 1701, Corbin's and Churchill's influence swelled to fill the vacuum. Willis was much married but childless; his lands went to a nephew, John Alden, but Alden never assumed the merchant role of his uncle.
