Could this be the area that they called Branham's Clearing?
Albemarle County Deed Bk 1 Pg 464 -- 9 July 1752
JAMES DAVIS, planter, to PATRICK BISHOP for 30 pounds (money), 312 acres Branham clearing, adjoining E side of one of Ragged Mountains & JOSEPH ANTHONY. Witnesses: CHAS. LAMBERT, DAVID LEWIS, JNO. SACKETT. MARY DAVIS, wife of JAMES DAVIS.
Based on following the land records of BISHOP and ANTHONY, I believe this property is somewhere between Charlottesville and the Scottsville area. My interest is in JAMES & MARY DAVIS.
