Where were the Virginia coalfields of 1845?

I just got a book from my wife's uncle, a history of Virginia written in 1845, and the big coal producing territory in Virginia at that time was in Chesterfield County, not far from where my in-laws live now.

So, I'm off to the coalfields, optimistically taking the golf clubs along, and no more blogging until Sunday night.
