- Jun 17, 2008Dear Mae,
I am sure that many of our members who are frequent
visitors or even employees of Pitt Memorial Hospital
can check for you at the hospital. You could also
simply call "Information" and ask for Pitt Memorial
Hospital in Greenville, North Carolina and ask to
speak to the Medical Director.
Even if he did not personally know your
grandfather, he would very likely know something about
the history of the hospital and distinguished
physicians who practiced there.
It is also possible that this hospital, like some
here in Richmond, publish yearbooks with pictures and
brief biographies of their staff. To locate something
like this would be a real treasure for a family member
because it would provide an opportunity to connect in
a very special way with a relative he never got to
I myself was born at home on County Home Road. My
baby sister was the only one of us born at Pitt
Memorial. Mama and our Uncle Mark moved us to
Richmond, Virginia in 1953. Being so young, I am sorry
to say that I never got to meet your grandfather, but
he must have been a very special person indeed.
Good luck to you in learning more about your
kinsman. I am glad, though, that you have already some
personal information about him.
I am sure that other members of our group will be
responding to you with specifics about your
grandfather. I hope that you learn even more about him
than you ever thought possible.
