Carrie Ellen Frederick, 98, daughter of Frank and Mary Anthony Smalley, was born Aug. 28, 1908, at Houston, Texas County, Missouri. She died Sept. 13, 2006, at Houston House Nursing Center. Mrs. Frederick lived her entire life at Houston, where she began her business career in 1935 when she and her husband, Elmer Frederick, opened Frederick's Grocery Store at the corner of First and Pine. The business included Carrie's Bake Shop, where she made cakes and donuts. After selling the grocery store, Mr. Frederick went into the dairy business, and Mrs. Frederick bought the bus station on Grand Avenue, where she had a restaurant and bake shop during World War II. The restaurant had a jukebox, and on Saturday nights, soldiers came from Fort Leonard Wood to dance. She sold the restaurant in 1945, and started Frederick's Variety at the corner of Main and First. In 1947, she was approached to become a Ben Franklin Dime Store franchisee. She moved her business to Grand Avenue, where it remained until 1997, when she retired. In the mid-'60s, she discovered she loved to travel. The Fredericks traveled to many countries, bringing souvenirs to friends and family. She loved her family, traveling, her business associations, embroidery, knitting, bird watching, raising cattle with her husband and her rose garden. She was preceded in death by her parents; one brother, four sisters, one grandchild and her husband of 63 years. Surviving are her daughter, Betty Dunn of Houston; three grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Services were Sept. 16 at the Evans Funeral Home Chapel with the Rev. Kendall Ford officiating. Burial was in the Pine Lawn Cemetery. Memorials may be made to Hospice of Care. Source: Houston Herald

105 "For all my adult life Mabel Nichols Brinkley has been my neighbor, and she is the best neighbor anyone could ever have. She is at home. That’s where she wants to be. Every Sunday she prepares a meal -- never knowing how many guests she will have, but always plenty for everyone. She is that kind of person. Never having had great means she has shared with anyone and everyone. She is the soul of generosity, and her mantra is that if she cannot divide what she has then she does not want anything. She is just that way. She has lived right here all her life, and probably has never been much more than a hundred miles from here.

"She did like to go to the mountains when getting around was a little easier. Mabel and Willard had seven children. The oldest one died in early childhood. Two others were severely handicapped, and in spite of the recommendations often and constantly that they be removed to institutional care, Mabel insisted that they were hers and that she would be responsible for them, and she was, with the tenderest of loving care. That’s her nature. She has been a good and loving mother to her four other children, and they have returned that loving loyalty to her. She knows where her grandchildren are and who they are, and now there are great grandchildren and at least one great great grandchild, and they all know Granny Mabel, and love her.

"Not only has Mabel taken care of her own family, but also her siblings. She cared for them and their offspring witih the same constancy, caring for them through their illnesses and troubles. She lived with her in-laws until their deaths, and cared for them in the same way. Nobody could help but love Mabel. She was proud of her family, and justly so, especially for their loyalty to her and to each other. Hers was the supoort that binds families together. This world needs more Mabels, plain, unassuming, gentle, considerate, nonjudgmental, simply live a good life where she was placed.

"On Sunday, Sept. 2, her children hosted a surprise 90th birthday party for her. They were careful in their planning and they were successful in the surprise. Friends and family from all around and from many years association came to pay tribute to a gentle and kind and generous and unassuming life. I said to her one day, 'Mabel, I believe you would give me the clothes off your back.' With no hesitation she answered, 'Well, I would, if I thought you needed them and could wear them.' Such is her nature. All those who came to honor her know her nature just as I do."

106 "Frederick Brock was the eldest child of Rudolph Brock, born 2 February 1719, in Zweibreucken, Germany. He married about 1743; nothing is known of his wife; his eldest son Isaac was born a year later. Frederick is believed to have been a farmer who served from time to time as a chain carrier, an assistant to a surveyor, in the area near his father in Virginia. His name also appears on quite a few deeds as a chain carrier after he moved about 130 miles south into Orange County, North Carolina where he appeared on the 1755 and 1777 tax lists in the Gloucester District. There seems to be no firm record of him as a land owner during the 1750-1780 period in which he is believed to have lived there. Only one transaction has been found thus far which was a warrant he executed on 11 November 1755, granting his son William then about three years old, a future interest in 640 acres above Captain Bankson's line on North Hico (Creek), and presumably owned by him. He was also recorded as living on land marking the northeast corner of Gloucester District, which would be on Cobb Creek just below Leasburg, adjoining the present day Caswell Game lands, and three miles NE of the old Griers Presbyterian Church, established in 1753."

107 "G. L. Walker Jr trained pilots how to read instrument panels in the planes. While enlisted they brought in a group who taught the soldiers how to make frozen custard. After G. L. left the military he used that knowledge to open Pete's Frozen Custard in Burlington. He had a putt putt, and a coin operated laundry also. Later on he was at a coin operated trade show where he saw his first automatic car wash. He then used that knowledge to open Lil Donnie Walkers car wash named after his son Donald. G. L Walker Jr was a true visionary, he had a great eye for the future and where things were headed, also a great vision on locations for success. A very brilliant man!"

115 "Having been cast out of the imagined community of British abolitionism, Moses Roper spent much of the next two decades seeking to sustain his own growing family while continuing as a freelance anti-slavery lecturer. Crucially, new evidence demonstrating the existence of a child born in 1840 means that Roper;s biography and the details of his family life must be significantly revised. Until now, the Ropers have been understood to have had four children, with the first, Annie, born on board ship when Ann and Moses took passage to Canada as migrants in 1844. In fact, their first daughter, Maria Elizabeth Roper, was born in Kensington, London on 23 September 1840 and named for Roper’s sister, Maria. Footnote 78 The Ropers lived at 15 Gloucester Terrace in Chelsea, London at the time of their daughter Maria's birth, but by the following year they had moved to Wales. In 1841, Ann and baby Maria were lodging in a cottage next to Cardigan Castle. Moses Roper is not listed on the same census record (taken on 6 June) as his family, though he lectured on 8 May in Milford Haven in Wales and on 14 June in Kington, Herefordshire, at the Baptist Chapel. Footnote 79"

78 Birth Certificate of Maria Mariam Elizabeth Roper, 23 September 1840, Kensington Union, GRO. In the Narrative, Roper tells how, having escaped from his master in South Carolina and made his way back to Caswell County, he meets a girl about six years old while searching for his family near the plantation he remembers being taken from as a child. He realizes that this girl is his younger sister, Maria, whom he may have known as an infant before he was sold away. Roper, Narrative, 1848 ed., 19.

It is expected that Mrs. Vallentine will also be baptised at the same time."

She apparently died before the enumeration of the 1850 U.S. Census, as Thomas J. Valentine was living, presumably as a boarder, in the Joseph J. Lawson household. Thomas J. Valentine also remarried later in 1850.

139 "I was scarred, but I stayed and watched because I wanted to see the twister even though I was scared. When it skipped to the other side of the church where we were, we didn't try to watch though, because we didn't know what it was going to do or where it was going next. I was just shocked when it twisted those trees apart."

Caswell County Deputy Sheriff James Ashby said the tornado damaged several houses, one church, a cemetery, took the roof off an auto sales building, demolished a seed storage house, tore down trees, and injured one boy who was hit by a brick.

141 "In 1791 almost simultaneously with the move to divide the county a step was taken which might have resulted in a new town but it never reached this point. The 1791 Assembly ordered that David Shelton, Charles Boulton, and Michael Montgomery serve as public inspectors at a recently established public warehouse on Thomas Harrison's land. Harrison owned land between Providence and Blanch, and it is probable that the warehouse was located in the vicinity of Blanch. The site was known as Antioch. . . . How long the warehouse was operated and what other activities were conducted in the vicinity are not known. The only other reference to it seems to be that recorded in the county court minutes of July 24, 1793, when David Shelton resigned as inspector."

"In September 1792 a commission composed of Zephamiah Tate, Thomas Donoho, Solomon Parks, David Shelton, and William Rainey was appointed 'for letting the building of the Court House and other Public Buildings . . . for the County of Caswell & the Court house to be planned on such a Construction as the building may not exceed Five Hundred pounds." [This was the first courthouse to be build in what would become Yanceyville.]

"Fords, it seems, were gradually being abandoned in the late eighteenth century and replaced by bridges. In April, 1793, in response to a petition the court ordered a bridge built across a well-known landmark as it was used by those passing between Red House and Milton. David Shelton, William Rainey, and Michael Montgomery were appointed commissioners to superintend the work and to inspect the bridge when it was completed. Again the builder was expected to keep it in repair for seven years. Jesse Carter undertook to build it but asked to be relieved and William Sanders was given the contract."
