It seems to me obvious that Mouzon did not travel up each river. One example of this is he stopped the Saluda River at the Laurens Co. -- Greenville Co. line when the Saluda River really goes all the way to northern Greenville County.
Secondly, I would think that the town of Sennekaw is at the current city of Seneca. He has his town of Sennekaw just below the mouth of a river (his Sennekaw River). The current town of Seneca is also just south of the mouth of a river (Little River), but he has the mouth of his Sennekaw River south of the mouth of 6 Mile Creek & 12 Mile Creek, while Little River's mouth is north of 6 Mile Creek & 12 Mile Creek. There is no mouth of a creek of any size flowing in from the west between Crow Creek & 6 Mile Creek, except Little River. So I suppose his Sennekaw River is Coneross Creek since Coneross Creek is the biggest stream flowing into the Seneca River after Little River flows into the Seneca & before the Seneca ends by flowing into the Savannah River. Maybe his town of Sennekaw was jut south of Coneross. However, it seems obvious that his mapping of places is often barely realistic enough to identify the places.
Thirdly it seems obvious he did not tavel up Whitewater River beyond the lower waterfall since he did not see that the river turns NW. I suspect he only saw the falls from a distance & did not even go as far as the mouth of Thompson River since he did not draw that River on his map. the way Thompson River's valley comes in at right angles probably hid it from his distant view.
Fourthly, he has the mouth of Cane Creek in a straight section of the river & the mouth should be further south at the turn in the river or I have his creek mislabeled as Cane Creek.
