RN #194 Rappahannock River Study

Rappahannock River (VA) was the major roadway to my early JONES family in their settlement days of Virginia.  This notebook contains maps, charts, drawings, and land surveys along this river.  Settlement along this river began as early as 1638.   Settlement in earnest began fall of 1642.

A sample map at the mouth of the Rappahannock is shown below.

The mouth of the Rappahannock is shown as drawn in 1 mile survey sections.  Thus one can identify any survey that is given as "6 mile" [or mile marker]  up Rappahannock River.
