I’ve started mapping an area of the Cape Fear River at the county borders of Bladen and Cumberland, NC. I’m researching some SIMS and ANDERSONS who migrated from Granville County, NC in the 1760s or so. I noticed some semi-circular oddities in the land around the area. So I took off my Genealogy hat and put on my Sciency Hat… and made a beer run.

  1. I hiked and explored one of those bays near Williston SC a few years ago. Also discovered a forgotten old graveyard hidden back and being overgrown in the woods in the area.

  2. Did you know at the time that it was a huge, honking kilometer sized chunk of ice that was hurled down from the Canadian ice some 12,600 years ago, give or take, from a comet impact that landed in the Carolinas and then melted? Be honest now…smiling.
