Barnett's Crk. Rd. Bridge is over Sapp Creek, a feeder stream
BJ Hagy corrects misidentification of stream crossed by the new Barnetts Creek Road Bridge.

By BJ Hagy
Well I've held my tongue too long and it's kind of sore now. This is perhaps the third article I've seen on CM that has misidentified this new bridge's location. Yes, it is at the intersection of Barnetts Creek Road and Scott Hill Road, but it does not lead over "Barnetts Creek."
This stream is a feeder branch that goes into Barnetts Creek just a short distance away. Barnetts Creek runs down past your referenced Gennie Hill Road, down through the old Leemon Goodin farm's fields to in front of and through Stan Rich's farm.
The stream that this new bridge covers has been referenced at times as the Sapp Creek or the Ray Scott Creek. The Sapp family lived up the hollow from where this new bridge is.
Just trying to preserve history as it's been passed to me over the years. It seems others have been misguided in their assumption that it's Barnetts Creek because it's on that road.
