Missing the Point in Edgecomb

The folks in Edgecomb have misplaced a landmark:
Historians among us! Where is Weir Point? Tom Boudin on the Cross Point Road says, "... a 1791 road description describes the Cross Point Road as beginning at a large red oak tree at Weir Point on the Cross River and gives distances and headings inland toward Newcastle. We know where the Cross Point Road is and where the Cross River is but need to locate Weir Point!" Hardly a man remains alive who remembers that red oak tree. [Link]
