At this time, or soon after, Moore had command of Fort
Anderson, or Thicketty Fort, as it was more generally
called, situated a quarter of a mile north of Goucher Creek,
and two and a half miles above the mouth of this small
water-course, which empties into Thicketty Creek, a western
tributary of Broad river, uniting with that stream a few
miles above its junction with Pacolet.
[If the route is taken that would have typically been a road, these directions take one to the extant structure, alleged to be the remains of Fort Thicketty.]
