Reedy Branch Falls. In a Land Patent dated 10 April 1761, William Magee was granted 460 acres of land by Governor Arthur Dobbs. The grant was located on the East side of the Little Coheary River near the Reedy Branch. A year later he sold it to Jacob Long, a blacksmith of Caroline County in the Colony of Virginia. There are a number of swamps in the region, viz: Young, Grove and Nohungow Swamps. Source: Sampson County Deed Book 4, page 60.
