In a message dated 98-05-25 18:50:05 EDT, you write:

<< The ferry we crossed was Harley, from thence to Cashways, from thence to

 >> Linches (Lynch's) creek, from thence to Camden, from thence to the water,

 >> river and Augustia and there we paid four dollars and a quarter. >>

Greetings from South Carolina. I believe there is an error in this. This
Mechanicsville is almost certainly Mechanicsville, SC (not GA)  since it
was/is in the vicinity of Cashway/Cashaway/Cashua Ferry and Darlington, SC
(Darlington Co.). They surely didn't go from Darlington Co. to Georgia & back
to Darlington Co. LOL-- it really was a hard trip.  

Thanks for the post. It's hard to imagine what a trip would have been like
back then.
