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

Wonderful picture, I had never know either of my grandfathers. I feel I had missed out on a great relationship.ReplyDelete
Thanks Claudia. I know it really is a blessing that my kids get to have a relationship with my parents. My husband's parents passed away but we try and talk about them to keep their memory alive.Delete
