Abstract:
The mystery around the Chowan River was two-fold: Lost Colonists of Roanoke Island; Dorothie, whose remains are believed discovered in Bennett’s Creek. Both parts of the mystery are examined in Don Upchurch’s In Pursuit of Dorothie, the Lost Colony Ship. Part investigation, part speculation, it explores a three-fold explanation for the two-fold mystery. The Dorothie transported the Colonists out of Roanoke, which means they survived beyond 1590, thus offering Croatan a meaning not related to death, but a new life.

Abstract:
Branch Grove, the birthplace of Alpheus Branch, founder of BB&T, is an extremely fine 1820's Federal tripartite house (with an earlier 1790s Georgian wing). Placed on the National Register in 1982, the highly significant house was rented to tenants from the 1880s to the early 1980s and sat vacant for decades. Preservation NC marketed the house for eleven years with lots of interest, but the challenge was always finding a suitable new site. In 2016, we faced a final ultimatum: move it or it will be burned down. The stars finally aligned with available land, and at the final hour, PNC received an extremely generous anonymous donation to relocate the house and stabilize its exterior. PNC was fortunate to partner with local contractor Andrus & Company on the renovation. The house was moved to a nearby site of over 38 acres and Preservation NC is looking for a buyer.

What has helped the store to survive two major setbacks can also be found in personality traits such as patience and determination. It is such traits that helped build good customer service and community presence for Marrow-Pitt Hardware and its four generations of store owners.
