The Chestnut Creek community was probably fairly self-sufficient and almost everyone farmed and had a moderate amount of wealth.
Some were also craftsmen and millers and Elisha Bedsaul was a blacksmith.
Following the Battle of Alamance, 1771 a group of intermarried families left the Piedmont of North Carolina and moved just across the Virginia border into virgin wilderness along Chestnut Creek and its tributaries.
These families were mostly Quakers or disowned Quakers and many of the men had been active in the Regulator movement and participated in the Battle of Alamance. The largest extended family was the Quaker Cox family.
