Road Survey, Raleigh County, 1873

September term 1873

Wm H. Shumate, Wm Turner, & Wm Daniel Comrs appointed at the
term of this Court to view out the most practical route for a
road leading from Caperton Right’s smith shop by way of Hamilton
& others to the intersection of Coal River Road. This day sub-
mitted their report in writing to the effect that on the 16th day of August
1873 they proceeded to make the review finding a proposed route lead-
ing from Hamilton Harper’s passing Jubal Stover’s & John Williams to the
intersection of Coal Road impracticable viewing other routes. Your Comrs
would recommend the location of the road from Caperton Right’s shop
up the Middle Prong of Sand Lick along a road now already partly
made to the upper end of Hamilton Harper’s field above the house
leaving the creek turning to the right hand up a ridge to the
top a main flat ridge & with the same to the intersection of Coal River Road.
