in Nashville,, Tennessee, in Mt. Olivet (Collection of Ima Eula MEWBORN.).
Lula Payne had many original Carr papers and might have had Broome papers. I have copies of some of these papers in my
possession. Dr. Payne was the President of George Peabody College in Nashville, Tenn which was the forerunner of Vanderbilt
University. Her grandson, Carr Payne, Jr. lives (in 1994) in Atlanta where he has retired from teaching at Georgia Tech. Carr said his
grandmother was fairly old when she put the Carr information together and it is not organized. Carr said his grandmother was raised
where the Dupont plant is now in Kinston. Her father was much older than her mother. Her papers give no indication where she got
the information regarding Matthew's wife's name and the names of their children or what her source was for stating that Lawrence P.
was the son of Matthew. According to Carr Payne, Lula's grandmother Carr was very elderly when she died and she gave this
information to Lula. This would make it far enough back where the grandmother would probably remember family members herself.

At the age of 83, Mrs. Payne wrote down some notes
She said her father was named for a Primitive Baptist preacher. Forty years before she wrote this, her mother visited Frank Titus Carr
of Pitt County who was a relative and he provided her with notes by Francis Cowles and a copy of the Robert Carr Will which he
owned.
She mentioned she knew Dr. James Carr, Dean of Men in a State College in Florida who descended from Titus Carr and maybe his
grandfather was Frank Titus or Richard.
She stated that her father and his brother Titus were both in the CSA and on the battlefield when the South surrendered and had a
reunion that day which was the first time they had seen each other since the war started. Uncle Titus was asleep under an apple tree
when her father found him. Her father was in the calvary and Uncle Titus the infantry.
She mentioned that her brother left no children.

OBIT - MARY ELIZABETH WARREN -
Dear Mr. Gold:
I have a desire to write to you for publication in Zion's Landmark a short sketch of the life and death of my oldest sister.
Lizzie, as we call her, was born on June 6th, 1874, and died August 2nd, 1946, making her stay on earth 72 years, one month, and
twenty seven days.
She was the oldest daughter of George M. HARDY and his first wife, Lucy Ann Fields HARDY. When she was sixteen years of age her
mother died leaving her with most of the care of several younger children which she did well, until her father married again.
She was married to Joshua Hill Warren on December 23rd, 1891. They lived happily together until July 14th, 1906, when our dear
Heavenly Father saw fit to take him from this earthly home, we hope, to a better one on high, leaving her with two small children to
bring up which she very nobly did. Her son had entered his 21st year when God called him home to rest leaving her with one daughter.
She never united with any church but was a firm believer in salvation by the Grace of God and was a faithful attendant of the
church meetings as long as she was able to go. Her health failed several years ago so she was not able to get about much in her later
years and about a year ago her mind failed also. She suffered so much that while we miss her so much and it is sad to know that we
can see her no more here, it is sweet to feel that her sufferings are over. She has paid the debt we all must pay. All was done for her
that loving hands could so, but none can stay the hand of death when God calls, "Child come home."
She leaves one daughter, Mrs. J. D. Smithwick, one grand-daughter, Sybil Smithwick, Aurora, NC; three brothers, J. A. HARDY,
Aurora, T. L. HARDY, Zebulon, L. J. HARDY, McKinney, Texas; three sisters, Mrs. J. R. Exum, Kenly, Mrs. B. W. Cayton, Edward, NC.,
Mrs. W. R. Lee, Aurora; and hosts of relatives and friends to mourn their loss which we hope is her eternal gain.
Her body was laid to rest in Sandy Grove Primitive Baptist Church Yard near those of her husband and son to await the second
coming of our Lord and Savior when He comes to raise our sleeping thus to unite body and spirit and take us home to our Father where
we will sing praises to Him forevermore. Where we will be satisfied for we will see Him as He is and be like Him.
Written by a sister that loved her devotedly.
Mrs. James R. Exum
Kenly, NC.

Miss Eugenia MEWBORN
My Dear Cousin:
Excuse my long delay in answering your very welcome letter which was received some months ago. I have thought of you all the
time and but have not taken time to write.
School has closed for awhile and Papa has taken the oysterman's trade and gone to work at it.
We have been having some bad weather this fall and winter but today the sun is shining bright and the wind has ceased to blow, so
the men have gathered together at the oyster rocks.
Well Christmas has passed and gone and the New Year has come. We have had one marriage, some dances, and other parties
around here. The couple that was married was Mr. John Wallace Salter and Miss Sydney Styron. They were married on the 24th at
seven o'clock, P. M.
Papa received a letter from Grandmamma this last week she said they were all well. Cousin George W. MEWBORN and his family
were going to spend Christmas with Uncle Riley and Aunt Patsy. Uncle Riley had gone to New Bern to meet them when
Grandmamma wrote.
Eugenia write to me all about the people around there. We would be glad to see any of you at any time.
Give my love to all the relatives around.
Please excuse this scribble and I will do better next time.
Good bye,
Your loving cousin,
Sarah T. HARDY
May your joys be as deep as the ocean.
May your sorrows be as light as the foam,
May flowers spring in your pathway
Wherever you may roam.
When the golden sun is setting
And your mind from care is free
When of ten thousand things you're thinking
Will you sometimes think of me.
Sarah
NOTE: Given the nature of Portsmouth Island, no doubt Sarah and her family had a pretty bleak existence. (MMM)

Miss Eugenia MEWBORN
My Dear Cousin and Sister:
It has been a long time since I received a letter from you, but I feel like I want to write to you now.
Eugenia you do not know how glad I was to hear that you had joined the church and been baptized. I believe I know something of
the sweet peace and comfort there is in obeying the commands of the dear Savior. What comfort there is in the thought that "Jesus
died to save sinners of whom I am chief." What a love the heavenly Father must have had for poor sinners like us to give his only
begotten Son that we might live, for it is by grace and grace only that I am saved.
Today is Christmas. It looks as if it might snow before night. Grandmamma is with us. She has been out here ever since the first
Sunday. She has not been with us on Christmas day before in four years.
Papa is building a house which we wish to move before long. We will be very glad when we get to our home.
One of our neighborhood boys was married last Wednesday morning. His name is Mr. Joel Dowty and his bride was Miss Aquilla
Hunnings.
Dec. 26
It is Sunday night. We have been having a right jolly time yesterday and today. I stayed at Cousin John R. Rowe's until bedtime
tonight and you may know we had a nice time. I enjoy being with Lula ever so much.
It rained last night and has been cold and rainy all day.
We are through picking cotton and you do not know how glad I am of it.

I am going to start to school next week. Lula is teacher. I was sorry to hear of your sister's death, but let us hope that while it is
your loss it is her gain.
Eugenia do you think it wrong for a young girl to write letters of friendship to a young man that she has never seen. Let these
letters be conducted in such a way as to give information to both parties.
My sister, Lucy, has gone home with Lydia MEWBORN. She went this evening and will stay until Tuesday.
Papa says write and tell us all the news. We will be glad to hear any news.
We all send love to all. I hope you will receive it and take a large portion for yourself.
Write soon to your love Cousin and sister
Sarah T. HARDY
Excuse this bad writing.

HARVEY FRANKLIN GLANCY
He was born Janury 20th, 1871. He was the son of Wm. Glancy and Wealthy, his wife and was their only child. On October 21st,
1891, he was married to Rebecca T. HARDY, our daughter. The fruits of this marriage are three children, one son and two daughters.
Harvey died on September 8th, 1899. His disease was consumption in its fast form.
In some senses he was a remarkable man. Religiously he was an infidel, often saying that he didn't believe there would be any
more of man after death than there was of the beast. But his case seemed to be represented in the language of the Psalmist, "It was
good for me that I was afflicted, for before I was afflicted I went astray, but now have I kept Thy word." Two days before he died he
called me to his bedside and asked me if I could send his body to Newport for burial when he died? I told him if it was his request I
would make arrangements to do so. I then asked him if the Lord took him from us now what was his hope for the future? He said, "I
have a good hope for the future. I know I have been a bad fellow all my life, but God has been good to me and has given me an
assurance of my happiness with Him, and I have no doubt about my life hereafter. That is why I pray to go. My sufferings are so great
here, I would be glad to stay with "Becca" and my little children, but I cannot stay and I want to go, for all my sufferings will be over
when I go." To the best of my recollection the above are his very words. We all believe he had a hope about four weeks. At that time
he said to his father, "I want to hear some good singing." Refering to Sunny Side, where I was preaching at the time, he said, "I wish I
could go to preaching, they have some good singing over there." I never saw any one suffer more or bear their suffering with less
murmuring. I was by him almost constantly for twelve days preceeding his death. He died perfectly conscious, wide awake and happy.
After he breathed his last breath he loked in my face and a gentle smile passed over his face and all was over.
His father and mother took him to Newport, where on the 10th at 11 o'clock AM he was laid to rest until the Lord shall awake him
in His likeness. He leaves an aged father and mother, widow and three little children and a host of others to mourn their loss, but in the
full assurance of faith that all is his gain in Jesus Christ our Lord.
The Lord remember us in His mercey.

         By Request of the church I will write concerning his life.
         Brother MEWBORN was born May 22, 1896 and passed away December 2, 1945, making his stay on
        earth 48 years, 6 months, and 11 days. The son of Dr. J. H. and Lela MEWBORN, he was married to
        Miss Pearl Glancy on April 3, 1917 and to this union was born five children; namely, Kathryn, Virgil
        Jr., William, Harvey, and Betty.
         On the morning of the third Sunday in September, 1933 he joined the Primitive Baptist Church in
        Kinston, NC and was baptised in the afternoon by his pastor, Elder J. E. MEWBORN. Brother MEWBORN
        was elected Clerk of the Church on the third Sunday in May, 1935, which office he held with pleasure.
         He was interested in the welfare of his church and thoroughly enjoyed having his brethern, sisters,
        and friends worship with him. He was kind to old people and rendered assistance to them whenever
        opportunity afforded. A good husband and father, his home was a happy and hospitable one.
         Brother MEWBORN's health failed early in 1941 and he retired from the practice of Optometry in
        June of that year. He was a great sufferer but bore his afflictions with cheerfulness and patience and in
        sweet resignation to the will of Him who maketh no mistakes but doeth all things well.
         His funeral was conducted from his home December 2, 1945 by Elders G. G. Trevathan and J. E.
        MEWBORN, with his body being laid to rest in Westview Cemetery in Kinston, North Carolina beneath a
        mound of flowers to show the love his brethern and friends had for him. He is survived by his wife,
        five children, five grandchildren, his father and mother, five sisters, and one brother.
         In his going the church has lost a faithful member, one who always attended Union Meetings and
        Associations when his health permited. The Church extends sympathy to the family in their hour of
        sorrow.
         Be it resolved that we the Church in Kinston bow in humble submission to the will of God who
        doeth all things well.
         Resolved that a copy of this memorial be sent to the family, a record be put on the church book, a
        copy be sent to ZION'S LANDMARK and OLD FAITH CONTENDER.
         Done by order of the Church in conference the third Sunday in February, 1946.

OBIT - ELBERT LAKE ROUSE, SR
On February 12, 1933, God saw fit to take from our midst a good man, a dear husband and father. He was the eldest son of James
Edward and Carrie Fordham Rouse, was born 1-13-1877, lacking one day being fifty-six years of age. He was married 1-1-1896 to
Annie K. MEWBORN, born 1-25-1878. To this devoted union there were born twelve children, three boys and nine girls. He joined The
Primitive Baptist Church in union with his wife at Sandy Bottom Church, May 13, 1905, and both were baptised in Neuse River near
the church the same day. Elder J. W. Gardner, then pastor of the church officiated. A few weeks later he was ordained as deacon of the
said church and served as same the remainder of his life, being near twenty eight years.
He made his regular attendance when he was able to go, and not providentially hindered. It seemed to be his greatest delight to
attend his church meetings, and have his brethern and sisters in his home. He lived these years a firm believer in the doctrine of Christ,
our Redeemer, and the faith he lived gave him the sweet assurance of gaining a blest abode when this life ended and his soul and body
separated. He was truly a good man. His everyday life showed beyond doubt that he was a child of God. His devotion to his wife and
children, his kindness to everyone he knew, were evidence that will live in our memories as marks of grace unquestioned, and if such
could be we are truly thankful for such a good brother, a dear husband and father.
On Sunday, January 29, two weeks prior to his death, he and his wife were taken with influenza. She was confined to their
bedroom for only about a week. But the following Thursday the doctors found that he had developed pneumonia in both lungs. He
suffered a great deal, but seemed to bear his sufferings with much patience. It must have been that sweet reconciling grace of the Lord.
On Friday afternoon before he died on Sunday he was visited by Elder Joshua E. MEWBORN and Elder W. B. Kearney, his pastor. From
this time until his last he seemed to be very much at ease and very much reconciled. All night that night he sung and hummed the
songs sung in the old Baptist Church. Early in the night he aroused from sleep, and took a very dear friend of his by the hand, who was
at his bedside, and said, "That's a beautiful place, a beautiful, place. I've done all I know. I've raised my family the best I could. I don't
know whether they could get out of a shower of rain or not, and it's hard to die and leave them so long, but I'm going to a beautiful
place. Come and go with me." Then he began to sing the old song, "I'm going to Heaven, don't you want to go." Again he said, "Come
and go with me, John." Then he began singing, "I do believe," an old song often sung at his church meetings, with these words:
"How sweet the name of Jesus sounds, in the believer's ear,
It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds, and drives away the fear."
He continued to hum but we could no longer understand his words.
From this time on he was in a state of coma. He died that beautiful Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock, with several of his very best
friends in his home. The Funeral was conducted Monday P.M. at 3 o'clock with Elder J. E. MEWBORN and Elder W. B. Kearney
officiating. Burial followed in the family cemetery near the home.
Surviving him, is his wife and ten children: Mrs. Carrie Rouse, Mrs. Lela Rouse, Mrs. Norma R. Potter, Mrs. Blanche R. Rouse,
Mrs. Grace Ipock, Mrs. Lois Rouse Smith, Misses Louise Rouse and Pauline Rouse, Elbert Lake Rouse, Jr. and Charles Stanley Rouse.

Aurora, N. C. May 5, 1905
Dear Brother Gold:
On the 21st day of April, 1905 it pleased God in his wisdom to take from us our darling sister, Ruby (Rowe) (Holadia). She was
the daughter of Elder John R. Rowe and wife. She was born January 6, 1882, and was married to Mr. Allen Holadia, December 19,
1900. Unto this union was born two children. The youngest is only two months old. Both of them survive her.
She was always a good girl and was loved by everyone. Oh, how we miss her none can tell. It's hard to stand by and see the life
ebb out of our dearest friends, but we should be resigned to the Lord's will. It was His will to take her home to glory where after a few
days we may join her. She may not come to us, but we may go to her. She is not dead only gone before.
All that doctors, loving friends and relatives could do was done for her. Among her last words were these. "You have done all
you could." Then she would say,"Goodbye Allen," and "My darling babe."
She leaves behind a loving husband, two children, three sisters, two brothers, and a host of friends to mourn her loss. But we
mourn not as those without hope, but in hope of the glorious resurrection when all death and parting will be no more.
Your troubled sister,
Celia Rowe
