Early Land Acquisition in Augusta County, VA


Approximate location of John McCroskey's land (Borden Tract NM, 284 acres) as shown on the map meticulously drawn by J.R. Hildebrand, cartographer. This map is copyrighted©, used by permission of John Hildebrand, son of J.R. Hildebrand, April, 2009. Note that the 284-acre tract acquired by John McCroskey, Jr. is not shown on the Hildebrand Map, however from the Chalkley's record below, we do know that it was located adjacent to the tract of James Glascow. Map above shows the two probable locations of John McCroskey's 284-acre tract. Note that the tracts acquired by John McCroskey, Sr. (John's father) and Alexander McCroskey (John's brother) are located nearby to the northwest.
