Led by Maj. William Chronicle, local men known as the "South Fork Boys", part of the Lincoln County Militia under Col. William Graham and Lt. Col. Frederick Hambright fought in the battle that President Thomas Jefferson dubbed "the turning point of the war", the Revolutionary War. How many descendants of those brave men still reside in our area? Are you one of them? Our speaker for November will be Leah Taylor of the Kings Mountain Battle Ground, which is part of the Kings Mountain National Park. Come on out to learn about this momentous battle & learn if you just might have a family connection to one of soldiers who fought so hard to free our country.
It's free and light refreshments will be served after the presentation.

Charles Lattimore Elliott
10 generations of his
Elliott and Lattimore families.
It's my very sad duty to report that Charlie left us
on April 12, 2010.
He will be sorely missed by our members
who send their deepest sympathies
to his family.
We have family photographs, picture postcards, buildings
and landmarks from the counties in
our area of North Carolina. We also have a few we need
help to identify. Can you help, or do you have
photos to share?
This little photo is from my own family archives and showcases the only 3 grandchildren at the time. From left to right is my Dad holding me, Uncle Hugh holding cousin Michael & Dad's brother Robert holding cousin Annette. I thought it time to share this information as we've now lost two of these wonderful gentlemen. The photo was taken in 1948 & featured 3 WWII veterans who came home with so much horror still in their minds, but full of hope for the future. We represented that future. We lost Uncle Hugh in July 1980, and Uncle Robert just this past December. Please take the time to drop by their findagrave memorials & pay your respects to members of the "Greatest Generation" who helped pave the way for your freedom. We miss them terribly. Judy
