    Judith Parks Hill worte the History of Henry County, VA, recorded in 1925...She Wrote:
    "On March 11, 1781, Colonel Penn and his men marched from Beaver Creek in Henry County,
    crossed Rowland's Ford just below Fontaine, followed the Old Road, deep cuts showing it's location,
    up Marrowbone Valley crossing the creek west of where Ridgeway now stands,
    thence along the ridge 2 miles, then crossing Matrimony creek half a mile to the state line,
    only one mile from the Marrowbone home of Old Rusty Hairston to the National Highway is now used for public road.
    From the south is not known, however, they marched so rapidly they soon reached
    General Lord Cornwallis a few mile North of Greensboro, NC and begin what become known as
    The Batle of Guilford Court House on March 11, 1781."
