Newton is just south of there in the grants of Adam Bolick, Albert Corpening, Jacob Deal, Frederick Gaff, Conrad Mingus and William Deal. The land grant of Sebastian Cline is due west of Newton. St. Paul's Lutheran Church is just west of Newton on the head waters of Clarks Creek. The grant is Bostian Cline which has Sebastian Cline on the west and Henry Propst on the north. St. John's Lutheran Church is where the main road north from Conover towards Oxford Dam (Lake Hickory) crosses Lyles Creek. The church land was bought from Henry Pope (Heinrich Papst). The land grant is the Henry Pope grant which is surrounded by William Whitingbert, Melchor Hefner, Jacob Bolick, Robert King and Frederick Shull.
