Grave Rediscovered

Record #:
During the late 20th century, the grave of Revolutionary War-era colonist, Robert Williams, was discovered in Morehead City. During the Revolutionary War, Williams worked in Beaufort as a colonial salt maker. The salt works, established 1776, were erected to decrease American dependence on European salt imports. Following the war, the salt making trend continued and production again spiked with salt shortages during the American Civil War.
