Pg 575 Whitfield Record

The 2nd William Whitfield and wife Rachel Bryan moved to the “Rich Lands” on the Neuse River in Lenoir Co., NC, and lived at Rockford on the North bank of the river.  He afterwards purchased White Hall now “Seven Springs” in Wayne county from Buckskin Williams (father of Gov. Ben and John Pugh Williams) and brother of Old Ben Williams. Buckskin Williams kept an Indian Store at White Hall until 1776.

Does anyone have any more information about this “Indian store” or Buckskin Williams?
