A story of old Florida
By William P. Ryan
The King’s road extended from Colerain Ga. , to Jacksonville (Cow Ford), to St. Augustine, through what is now Flagler County Florida, and then to New Smyrna on Florida’s Atlantic Coast. It was built by the British prior to the American Revolution and remained the main entryway into Florida right up to the 20th Century. Some say that parts of this historic roadway were located and used by a Seminole Indian Grey Eyes accompanied by 25 Indian boys and his best friend Black Sandy in a historic cattle drive.
