Re: [genpcncfir] Re: Mill or Mile Branch and Round Pecoson
- Thanks Margaret. I found a Mill Branch in this general area. It's located
by Grindle Creek West of the intersection of NC 30 and NC 903 and East of
US13/NC11. If you look on a map, can anyone tell where the "fork" in Mill
Branch is located?
