209 "May 12, 1883. At six o'clock my beloved wife [Margaret Durfey] sick . . . suffered fearfully . . . She never rallied from the severe shock of such pain and sank 'til 7:30 Wednesday, 13th May, 1883, when she breathed her last. . . . A year later, at Shadwell, Virginia, Mr. Lea married Mrs. Kate Wyatt Wilson, widow of a Shadwell druggist. The wedding ceremony was performed on his death bed. Soon after, on May 15, 1884, Mr. Lea died of an infection caused by a virulent carbuncle on his neck. He was only forty-five years old. Mrs. Kate Lea came to Huntington to care for two of the Lea children, John and Ernest, and remained until her old age when she returned to Virginia and died at Charlottesville, near which the town of Shadwell is located."

"When Uncle William Lea died, his son, John Willis entered West Point in 1857, aged 18. He received the cadet ship from Miss. through the influence of his uncle Willis M. Lea. When the Civil war began in 1861, he resigned and came south to fight for the cause he considered right. In a battle near Williamsburg, Va. he was severely wounded and was received in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Goodrich Durfey, who gave him every attention. When he recovered he married their daughter, Maggie G. durfey in 1862. He was then 'Capt. Lea,' but continued to rise until the became Lt. Col. N.C. Regiment of Infantry in 1863.

"When the war closed in 1865, he went into business with his brother-in-law. One day while reading his Bible, he became strongly impressed that he was called to preach. As he said afterwards, 'It is woe with me if I preach not the Gospel.' He gave up his business in which he was prospering. Although brought up in the Methodist church he joined the Episcopal to which he wife belonged and entered a Theological Sem. in 1869 to prepare himself for the ministry. He was there three years. He became rector of several different parishes in West Va. While at St. Alban's his wife suddenly died of acute indigestion, leaving an infant named Willis and 4 other children, William, Maggie Estelle, John and Ernest. Cousin Maggie Graves of Rome, Ga. took the baby and Maggie Estelle, who, unmarried is superintendent of schools in Birmingham, Ala."

213 "Milton Memories" by Jean Scott

On May 5, 1941, 16 proud young men and women marched down the aisle of Archibald Murphey High School, to go forth into the world. I have no memory of the graduation speaker, but feel sure that he inspired us to make the most of our lives, and we did. The senior boys were Charlie Killby, Thomas Coates, John Brandon, Foster Pointer, Alfred Hill, Marvin Yarbrough, and Walter Vernon. Melvin Wagstaff had been a member of this class from first grade, but transferred to Roxboro High School for his senior year; however, we claimed him and he joined us for our 50th class reunion. The girls were Violet Newton, Mildred Willis, Mary Sue Shotwell, Vera Carter, Anne Gwyn, Rosa Jordan, Louellen Phelps, and Louise Franklin, and myself, Jean Bradsher.

Most of us had been together since first grade under Miss Annie Irvine as teacher. I joined the class in second grade. The others came with us in fifth grade when Semora and Milton schools were consolidated. Our school then was the Milton School, while we waited for the brand new Murphey School was being built halfway between Milton and Semora. Principal N. S. Upchurch signed our diplomas (We had Mr. Upchurch for five consecutive years, as we were the last 7th grade he taught before becoming principal). The teachers who signed our diplomas were Horace D. Penn, Caroline E. McAden, Mary Clyde Coppedge and Gertrude Crabtree. Other teachers for high school included Miss Grace Tilley, Herbert Ellis, Mr. Webster and Mr. deFrank.

Those of you, like us, in our mid- to late 80s remember that 8th grade was first year of high school, that there were only 11 grades, and that the school year was eight months. From that class of 1941 all of the young men served in one or another branch of the Armed Services. The year 1941 was when Pearl Harbor occurred, and service became compulsory. World War II also meant that several of the young women found work associated with the war.

In 1991 we celebrated the 50th anniversary of our class at Woodside Inn. By that time Alfred Hill was deceased. Alfred had been stationed in Texas during the War, and made his home there for the rest of his life. Walter Vernon died at a very early age of a heart attack. Of the girls, Louellen Phelps Barker had died, as had Mildred Willis. At the time of the reunion Rosa Jordan Vernon was very ill, and passed away soon after. At this time Marvin Yarbrough, Thomas Coates, Foster Pointer, Violet Newton Lewis, and Mary Sue Shotwell Smith are no longer with us. Also teachers who joined us at time, Herbert Ellis, Horace Penn and Clyde Coppedge Poteat, have left this earthly life. Most of the teachers were not much older than their students, so it seems fortunate that at this 70th year since our graduation from the beloved Archibald Murphey High School that seven of us remain, now in our mid- to late 80s.

We look back on long lives of many changes, many exciting happenings to us and to our innocent world of early 1941, and feel grateful that we are in touch, that we reverence good lives and allegiance to each other.

228 "Mrs. Herbert [Harvey] E. Wilkinson's (daughter of Bartlett Yancey Malone) recollections of her father, based upon childhood's deep affection, were stated with careful moderation. her estimates of her father might be summarized as those of a man of simple tastes, of unassuming manners, and of good humor. She remarked that he always enjoyed jokes and even told those which were at his expense. She remembered a story that on his arrival at home after four years of war-time experiences on that day of March 5, 1865, he greeted his family laid down his gun, and disposed of his meager luggage, saying that he would now go to see his sweetheart. This was Mary Frances Compton, who lived nearby. He was to marry Miss Compton on November 15, 1866. I gathered that, after some house construction, Mr. Malone established himself as a farmer and head of a family which eventually numbered ten children. This family resided about four miles from Prospect Hill, Caswell County, in a rural community known as Hyco Creek -- a stream that flowed past his home. The post office was Corbett. Malone's life here was quietly uneventful and happy. To him, the war was over, and he rarely talked about it. In later life, he developed tuberculosis, which his family attributed in its beginnings to the exposure he suffered at Point Lookout. He died May 4, 1890."
