Mr Riley was very hospitable and helpful in allowing us explore the land. Mr. Simms had done considerable work with land records, and thought he had a good idea where Bloomsberry was located. Mr. Simms research seems to have paid off, and a clearing inside an area of trees is likely the site of Bloomsberry; and a series of depressions in the ground may be the adjacent grave yard, where we expect that Gabriel Long is buried. Much more work must be done at the site to verify this.
