Mount Olive, North Carolina: Late 1800's

Mount Olive, North Carolina: Late 1800's

This image is from the late 1800's. The place is Duplin County, Mount Olive, North Carolina. The child in the center of the image is my great-grandmother. My great-great grandmother is on the far left. The house and farm was a wedding gift from her father. My great-great grandfather, who is on the far right, died soon after this photo was taken. The three daughters were raised by their mother.
My family still lives on this farm. I am the seventh generation to live here. View full size.

Mount Olive again

My father's mother's family was from the Mount Olive-Dudley area. Lewises, Martins, Hendersons. Thank you for sharing.

Mount Olive

In the late 1970's we sold the house. It was moved to a different location and remodeled. I will ask the owners for a chance to photograph the house.
My parents asked if I had rather we keep the house for me to remodel when I grew up. Sadly, I was much too young to appreciate the house when given the choice.

Then, and now

How about a current photo, taken from the same vantage. Or even a series taken over the years.

This is what makes Shorpy shine!
