Can you obtain information on who owns the current land where Ralph Blankenship once lived? It would be recoreded at the County Court house. If you don't know where it was I can send you a detailed map if you send me your email address at email@example.com
Also, it would be very interesting to learn more about the early iron works (forge) at Ampt Hill (sometimes written as Ampthill). Do you know any more about this activity. There also was some early coal mining in this same area. Do you know where that occurred in relationship to Conjurer's Neck, Bermuda Hundred or Ampt Hill. I believe the first discovery and mining of coal was at Manquin, 19.5 miles northeast of Richmond. Also, was Manchester the first name for Richmond, VA?
