      The following is from The Heritage of Person County, Volume I, Madeline Hall Eaker, Editor (1981) at 232-233 (Article #492 "The Charlie Louis and Nannie Whitt Foushee Family" by Christine F. Wade):

      Charlie Louis Foushee was the son of John Henry and Nancy Fox Foushee. They were married Dec. 24, 1891. He was born April 28, 1894 in Person County, North Carolina. There were six other children in the family: Ruth (Nov. 26, 1892), Haywood N. (Oct. 9, 1895-1977), Pearl (Nov. 13, 1897), Foy (July 15, 1899-1978), Bera (March 13, 1902), and Elma (January 15, 1902). Charlie Louis died at age sixty six, January 7, 1961 and was buried in the Burchwood Cemetery at Roxboro, North Carolina. Their forefathers were of French descent.

      Nannie Graves Whitt was the daughter of Clifton "Dink" Whitt and Mary Ellen Mitchell and was born in Person County, North Carolina April 11, 1894. There were four other children, Berta (Oct. 28, 1891-1981), Lelia (Dec. 27, 1897-1970). Hattie and Teague died very young. Nannie died March 20, 1974 at age 79 and is buried in Burchwood Cemetery at Roxboro, Person County, North Carolina. Their forefathers were of English descent.

      Charlie Louis and Nannie were married Nov. 8, 1914 at her parent's home on the Hurdle Mills Road. Their first home was a three room log cabin, with a breezeway, about three miles from Roxboro on the Leasburg Road. This was on his grandfather, Haywood D. Foushee's plantation, on which tobacco and grains were raised.

      They lived there about six years where three of the children, Christine, Doris and Frances were born. He farmed the land with relatives, working together and helping each other with crops, cutting wood for curing tobacco and "barn raising."

      About 1921 he [Charlie Louis Foushee] bought a small farm from S. J. Dickens across the road from the L. P. Frederick farm, about two and half miles from Roxboro on Leasburg Road. Later he bought another farm joining this, known as Winstead's farm. Both farms totaled one hundred acres and this is where they lived and farmed the remainder of their lives.

      First the land was cleared for the home site and an orchard planted in the back and four maple trees in the front yard. Then the home was built by his father, John H. Foushee, Nash Frederick, James Foushee, himself and others. The home and four maple trees are still there after sixty years, plus many other farm buildings and a pond. There were two other children born here, Carl and Pauline. He had a hard time making ends meet, but with his wife by his side and all of the children helping as we grew older, we managed and had a full and happy life.
