When the Fouts, Hoover, Mast, Varner, and Black families from the Pipe Creek
area of PA-MD moved to the Uwharrie River area of North Carolina between
1762 and 1763, would they have taken the Great Valley Route (west of the
Blue Ridge) version of the Great Wagon Road down through Fincastle and Big
Lick, or would they have headed more directly south at the outset and taken
the "Upper" Route version of the Great Wagon Road which stays east of the
Blue Ridge?

Were there several alternates of the Great Wagon Road if one chose to go
from Pennsylvania to North Carolina?
