The land "Fork Neck" was purchased in 1725. Dennis Sr was deceased in 1721 so it has to be Dennis Jr buying this land. James Driskell, heir and son of Dennis Driskell sells this same land, in parts, bet. 1756-1761. (See James, son of Dennis Jr, for add'l deeds).
The land "Dennis Addition" is probably the same as "Addition" willed by Dennis Sr to his son Dennis Jr.
