I had to take a break from researching my Sampson County, NC kin on my father's side. It was making my eyeballs hurt. So I did some Googling on my Morehead City folks and came up with something new.

My maternal great grandma Ophelia T. Jones Bryant attended Summer school in 1921. The above entry was from a list of teachers who attended The A & T College Summer session in Greensboro, NC that year.

Ophelia Bryant worked as a school teacher in Morehead City, NC. She was also a devoted wife and mother. It's interesting to note that my great grandma attended Summer school the year before her daughter/my grandmother Mary Bryant Harrison Horton was born.

  1. That is interesting. My mother was born in 1923 :) I wonder if she stayed home and traveled each day or stayed there and if she stayed, how the family got through while she was gone. I don't know NC geography.

    1. I wonder if she traveled each day too. That would have been something else, traveling and taking care of her family. I bet her mother stepped in to care for the children since she resided in the house next door.
