Grindal Shoals Union Co. SC John Foster lands

Yesterday afternoon I revisited the Foster, Jasper and Moseley properties.  This time I was on my own and had all the time I needed to sped with these places.

Long pants on, pantlegs tucked inside socks and all layers of skin and clothes covered in bug repellent, I strolled the land John Foster bought from Nicholas Jasper when he came to Union District to begin his family.  I walked it from the road down to Sandy Run.

    I am trying to identify the land for John Dupree, my ancestor. He lived as a neighbor on land inherited by James, John Fostres son. In this deed(below) I am not sure of the reference to John Foster Hendley. I was hoping you could help.
    If you have a map showing John Fosters land, I would able to at least get close to identifying John Dupree’s property, He lived next to James Foster, and on the edge of the Pacolet River. (I assume both of their properties were on the south edge of the river.
