Commentary

The persons indicated in this road order appear to have lived in or near Woods Gap. The road in question is the Three Notch'd Road which connected Tidewater Virginia to the Valley of Virginia, passing through Woods Gap to Staunton and Beverley's Manor. Many of the workers on the road crew, such as Andrew Wallace, Archibald Woods, Micha Woods, John Cowan, etc are kinsmen of person:Michael Woods (1) who settled in the area about 1734.
