The Outer Banks Lighthouse Society

will be featuring a story of an upcoming

trip I will be taking to Bald Head Island, NC.

Bald Head Island is where 

my Great Grandfather, Devaney F. Jennette, 

 was first assistant light keeper 

from 1919 ~ 1932.

He died of a heart attack while on duty.

So please check back at the end

of summer for a link to the story.
