Miss Jesse Rountree Moye was interested in the history of Pitt County and the role her family played in the community. Her ancestor’s contributions to Pitt County pre-dated the American Revolution and continued well into the twentieth century. Miss Moye was herself an active contributor to the community, researching the history of the county as well as her own family history. She also actively participated in the community herself, collected and saved mementos of community events, and began writing a history of Pitt County. Her family donated the land for the site of Pitt County Memorial Hospital in the memory of her father, Jesse Rountree Moye. Note: The Greenville High School items and the WWII ephemera may have been compiled by Edward S. Williams, Jr., the primary donor of the collection.
