This is the genealogical information found in the article.
- The date was February 1961 according to note I had in file. I only
copied the genealogical information. If I remember correctly there was a
mention of them living in the same house but there was a dividing line
painted in the house. Each had their own side of the house. I didn't
write this down but am sure it was the same couple. Bill
- Bill: That was certainly an interesting bit of added information - do you
have anything on their family, i.e. children and the like? He is the brother
of the Anne Blount who married Charles Pettigrew (father of Johnston
Pettigrew); and his brother James was the father of Frederick Blount who
married Rachel Whitfield Herritage.

- And Rachel Whitfield Herritage md 1st James Bryan. John, there are a lot of
letters from Frederick Blount, son of Frederick and Rachel to his brother
John Heritage Bryan, in the Bryan Collection at UNC. Most of the letters
were written from Alabama and refer to numerous other family from
Craven/Pitt - Swift Creek area - that moved to Ala.
