      Alexander Rountree Foushee (1839-1925) authored a great little book about his life in Person County:

      Foushee, Alexander R. Reminiscences: A Sketch and Letters Descriptive of Life in Person County in Former Days. Durham: The Seeman Printery, 1921.

      Fortunately, it was reprinted in 1960.

      However, there is no index. Accordingly, to find a particular reference one must scan the entire book.

      Realizing this concern, in 1969 Virginia Reavis Lyle created an index, but her publication apparently is not readily available.

      Not to worry. The Foushee book is available online at the site shown below, and one can use the search feature of most computers (cntrl/f).
