Henderson, Richard
At nearby Salisbury, where he went on business and legal affairs, DB probably met Richard Henderson. DB's father had been a justice of the County Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions before which Henderson practiced. Bakeless suggests a conjunction between DB's hunting tales and Henderson and others interests in land speculation at this time. 1764 he met hunters "deep in the wilderness" and told them he was employed by Henderson to explore the country. The same year he and Rebecca sold their Yadkin farm and moved westward to the Bushy Mountains. (BAKELESS:36-37, citing Collins, 2:416; disputed in Draper 6S38) RHENDERSON LANDSPEC
