Rev. Thomas Duke Harrison--Part two.
I love using google maps to get a sense of what a neighborhood may have looked like back in the day. On my last post I left off with the Rev. Thomas Duke Harrison and their arrival to New Bern. The family home is still standing at 1510 Lincoln St.
1510 Lincoln St, New Bern
When I pulled up the overhead view of the address for the first time I found something very interesting.

Thomas Duke Harrison's home is noted on the left of the image and then on the right I have a notation for the location of where St James AME Church once stood. Thomas was the pastor of this church according to the 1907-1908 Hill's Directory for the City of New Bern. The address was later updated to 1016 Williams St when the numbering system changed in the 1930's. The thing I found the most interesting about this image was if you look at the intersection nearest to the church, the next crossover street is Harrison St. Hmmm. Coincidence?
