    I used a combo of the current listing photos and some exterior photos from Zillow I assume the owner uploaded or was from a previous listing. This was also on Zillow, again possibly from the owner or previous listing, “This property is a historic farmhouse and 15 acres located in a very historic area of Pittsylvania County. The property line backs up to Guenther Creek, a tributary of Birch Creek. There are some amazing large, flat rocks in the creek on the property. The area of Birch Creek is made up of karst topography with numerous caves. We have found many quartz crystals in the creek on the property. The house is accessed by a very old, gravel, dead- end road with steeply cut banks- Herman Farmer Road. The house has large rooms, high ceilings and wood floors. A new, standing seam metal roof with a 100 year warranty was installed in 2011. Huge, over 100- year old oak trees surround the house. A tobacco pack barn (needs work) exists on the property as well as a shed/barn. An earlier house (owned by someone else) with an 18th century graveyard sits at the end of the road and another cemetery is near the creek further down. An early log house is on the opposite side of Guenther Creek. It’s a magical place.”

    Can you just hear the Waltons now? “Good night John boy” . . . I adore this property. Really really cool.

    This neighborhood is where my Bennett ancestors lived in the latter 1700s. Some of the family stayed there, but mine moved to NC briefly, and then to GA on land grants given for their Revolutionary War service. In the next generation, the two oldest sons moved to southwest Indiana, and my ancestor to eastern Illinois and then to Mexican Texas. It’s interesting to contemplate how different one’s life would be if one’s ancestry was traced through the brothers of our ancestors. I could have been a Virginian.

      Hey Dr. O. I am also a Bennett with ancestors originally from Virginia. I am an attorney who works in Washington, DC but who still lives in Virginia (Fredericksburg). My Bennetts came over to Jamestown in 1623 or 24?
