Location of "Forks of James River"?????

In old documents of Rockbridge County and the Shenandoah Valley there are a great number of references to a place called "Forks of James River".

But for the life of me I cannot find such a place. Where is it and how does it come by that name? Are there several branches of the James River that come together at a single location? Many references I've found seem to vary in location almost all over the state of Virginia.

Ps - for a visit this spring to Rockbridge Co., what would be the best time to find the native folage in bloom?
