Amanuensis Monday: Charity Ambrose Deed to Mt. Olive Methodist Church
At last, some genealogy right?!! LOL. I decided to jump back into things with an Amanuensis Monday post. I have to thank a fellow genealogy friend of mine who helped me out a couple of months ago, Nathaniel Glasgow. He brought to my attention a deed which documents the sale of about an acre land from a woman named Charity Ambrose to the trustees of Mt. Olive AME Zion Church in Riverdale, NC. Guess who's listed among the trustees. My maternal 3rd great grandfather and his son, Mortimer and Alfred Mitchell. State of North Carolina} Craven County This deed made this 6th day of November in the year 1893 by Charity Ambrose of the first part of Craven County, and Mortimer Mitchell, Charles F. Hall, Anthony Dennis, Edward Hooker, Killis Green, David Sampson, Phillis Borden, Ezekial Pastuer, and A. F. Mitchell of Craven County and State of North Carolina of the second part , Trustees of the Mt. Olive Church, African Methodist Episocpal Zion Church in America of No. 6

i love the way your hair is combed. my mom used to comb mine like that, and i combed my daughters hair like that, bubbles and all. such sweet memories.
Thanks Angela for stopping by. I am glad that people can relate to pictures with those "Goody" bubble barrettes. This was my special occasion hair style. One of these days I have to post a picture with my everyday hair. My mother used to braid 30--40 braids in my hair with "Goody" barrettes and all. When I shook my head it was like a bunch of clackers go off. You probably remember clackers too or Ker-Bangers as some people called them.Delete
Awww, all so sweet. My mother put our hair in braids but I used to fix my daughter ife's hair like yours is in the photo. She must be about your age!ReplyDelete
