My ties are are to eastern North Carolina, with most of my ancestors associated with Carteret and Craven Counties. Family Surnames: Bryant, Mitchell, Jones, Harrison, Whitney, Harris, and Taylor.
This picture is the picture that sparked my curiosity regarding family history. It hung in my maternal grandmother's bedroom when I was a child and I would always stop to look at it when I visited her.

My grandmother, Mary Horton, was 6 months old when this picture was taken. I treasure this picture so much.
