Indian Creek Bridge
Posted March 20, 2009, by Karen H. Nabours (khnabours [at] sbcglobal [dot] net;)

Thanks so much for this photo. I am with a Koontz research group and we have found that one of our ancestors who was Henry Koontz/Koouns/Coouns/Kounts/Kountz lived at Indian Creek in 1794. His land was in Monroe County in 1799. Then in 1805, he moved to Kanawha County, West Virginia. We were wondering if this was the location where he lived. In Kanawha County, he frist lived at Cabin Creek and then moved to Peter's Creek which became part of Nicholas County. Through deeds in Nicholas County, we are finding his family but he began on Indian Creek. Thanks so much for this photo.
