To err is human, to forgive divine, but I would have had trouble with this one. I came across Charlie Tulbert’s marker today recording some stones for Find A Grave. I can only imagine the family gathering to mourn the passing of a loved one and realizing that the mason botched his name. I don’tContinue reading “Photo of The Day: Set In Stone”
Today’s photo of the day is really several. On a quick trip through the county I made a stop at Hunting Creek Friend’s Meeting in Hamptonville, a small church that I’ve found some old pictures of researching another story.It’s a fascinating little church with an interesting style to it’s steeple that I haven’t seen inContinue reading “Photo of the Day +”

I believe this farm was the former homeplace of a Myers family. It’s off the beaten path and these days is part of a cow field along with the barn that also sits on the property.
I found this in some of my old files. I think it’s Fort Fisher at Kure Beach.
This interesting looking house in Davie county seems to be undergoing something of a renovation and hopefully can prevented from further deterioration.

These places usually produce a picture or couple pictures and I may never see them again, but that’s no reason notContinue reading “Photo Of The Day”
