4/24/1794: <About the last of May or first of June, 1774, Mr. James Hickman employed me to locate, enter, and direct the surveying of 4000 acres as soon as time would admit of and lodges with me Colo. Prestons Certificate for the survey and on the 26th day of June the same year I was employed by Governor Dunmore to go out to the country and give notice of the outbreaking of the Indian war and I took with me Michael Stoner & on the Creek that goes by the name of Hickmans Creek about two miles or three below Levi Todds I cut the two first letters of said Hickmans name on a large water oak with a large stone grown fast in said tree in the presence of said Stoner and finding the surveyors were driven in by the Indians I returned home and wrote to Colo. Preston to make the entry for Mr. Hickman at that tree agreeable to my instruction. . . .> (HAMMON2:463, citing Boofman's Heirs v.
