Abstract:
The second in a series of three articles, this segment addresses the life of Daniel Reid between February and April, 1896. Daily diary entries from Reid provide insight into clerical duties and family life outside of the Church. As a local Methodist minister, Reid was required to travel locally for work and his writing documents many interactions with local communities. Due to their location in southeast North Carolina, Reid and his family also dealt extensively with malaria which is an on-going theme in the accounts.

Abstract:
In January 1862, the Irish ship YORK wrecked near Bogue Inlet. USS ALBATROSS was patrolling the coast at the time, and discovered the vessel unloading its cargo with help from Confederate troops. Historic sources indicate another vessel was also on shore at the time, leading the commander of USS ALBATROSS to suggest the vessels were wrecked by Confederate sources. Contemporary Confederate accounts indicate there was an interest in salvaging iron from both vessels. The crews were taken and imprisoned at Fort Macon.

Abstract:
Carteret County consists of the “down east” Outer Banks and North Carolina mainland. Sandwiched between two bodies of water, the county runs nearly 90 miles in length. Atlantic, a town on the mainland, is the gateway to Beaufort and the remainder of the County, which stretches from Portsmouth Island south to Bogue Banks. Various towns in the county are littered along the shoreline including Otway, Davis, and Oyster Creek. Residents on the mainland grow a number of crops, including cotton, corn, soy beans, sweet potatoes, and sorghum.
