I have relatives that live on Boydton Plank Road next to Stony Creek & right across from the Boydton Plank Rd Bridge crossing of Stony Creek. Being a history enthusiast I was hoping to find out more about that area, who lived there, what happened there during the war, if their land/farm/home was used/involved etc. I have found several Civil War Era maps showing the specific area some of which contain markers for buildings & landowners names. Depending on the map, the names given have been: W. Young, J.E or J.F Young, J. Young, E.H Young Hotel, Mrs. Fields, LO Field, Roney’s Mill, and Roney’s Mill Pond…. Anyway, I was wondering if you could maybe point me in the right direction towards finding any further information regarding the area, landowners, maps, and if/how/when the property may have played any role during the civil war?
