An 1803 Plot from Amherst County, Virginia

We will be discussing this in a future post, but I could not resist sharing this 1803 plot of a parcel of property surveyed for Thomas Sledd in Amherst County, Virginia. It was surveyed a few years before he left for Kentucky.

These old drawings are wonderful. They are land records, but sometimes these survey plots are recorded in a separate series of books.
