Barry Isaacs' analysis of the land records concerning the family of William Isaacs
The Right Fork of Beaver Creek starts in present day Letcher County
near Kite and flows north through Top Most and Raven before crossing into Floyd
County and continuing through Wayland, Lackey and Garret then joins the Left
Fork near Martin.
The Left Fork of Beaver Creek starts near Wheelwright and flows north through Burton, Buckingham, McDowell, Minnie, Drift and Salisbury before joining the Right Fork near Martin (all in Floyd County).
I have included a parenthesis with the land grant records for Trace Fork, Johnson's Branch and Fleming's Creek (Branch?). I could not find a Sipes Creek (sic Sipcs).
