Incorporation Dates : LUSENET : Southern Railway : One Thread

Could anyone please give me the incorporation dates of any of the following: Richmond & Danville RR, the Richmond & West Point Terminal Ry & Warehouse Co., East Tennessee, Virginia & Georgia Ry. Could anyone also tell me which Southern predecessor built the Winston Salem-Barber-Mooresville line? Thank you.

Richmond & Danville incorporated 3/9/1847

However, its charter greatly restricted its ability to buy and control other companies, so the Rich & West Point Terminal Co was formed as a holding entity on 3/8/1880.

The ETV&G was incorporated 11/20/1869, but was preceded by the ET&VA and the ET&GA railroads.
