    *Though The Article Claims Aberdeen is/was a Hamlet in Tazwell County.
    Wikipedia claims Aberdeen is a historic plantation house located several miles north of Disputanta, Prince George County, Virginia. It was built sometime between 1790 and 1810, by Thomas Cocke. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aberde...nta,_Virginia)

    Coordinates 37°13′35″N 77°08′43″W place it here

    yea I'd be pretty confident he was in Virginia or west Virginia

    I noticed allot of papers didn't separate them as different states when reporting.

    And the Article appears to have been originally from Parkersburg West Virginia

    Blacksburg is South of Aberdeen & so is Parkersburg WV. this may be the reason.

    someone may be suggesting the Dip on the Map points to Blacksburg ?

    if anything I'd say the Numbers are more likely paces then miles
    Hopefully the circles were something more permanent then trees
