Historical Sketches and Reminiscences of an Octogenarian, Thomas Preston 1900
Book by great grandson of earliest founder of Virginia Augusta County wherein is detailed the services of Charles St. Clair (Sinclair) a long hunter, to lead the exploration party of Col. Patton in 1748 to the discovery and naming of the Cumberland Gap and Cumberland river. This was 2 years before what most history books record as Cumberland discovery by Dr. Thomas Walker. Note Walker was in the party also in 1748, but not its leader.
