Undated map shown as based on survey by Henry Mouson, shows Peyre's near the Gaillard's Island location (left red dot) and shows Cordes Plantation to the east. Note the position of Cordes in relation to the curves in Outside Creek. This map is found here.
Another snippet from the Mills 1820 Charleston District map. Note that the region along the Santee eastward to Murray's Ferry was also named Gaillard's Island. This map was surveyed approximately the same time W.D. James was writing in 1820. Cordes Plantation is not shown. Note curves in Outside Creek similar to above map.
Francis Marion Orderly Book, ???. Describes Cordes Plantation as being in St. Stephens.
