Hiya Strat! Happy Reformation Day!  496th anniversary, Praise the Lord!  Since it's Halloween on the calendar I went into the Ghost Stories tab, per your suggestion; but the only story there is the Hitch Connection.  I know you want the Railroad story read (the North Carolina version of the Headless Horseman), so I went to the "Haunting Tale" to become re-acquainted with it.  Then I went to the Baptist Connection to maintain my acquaintance with the living.  Now, they are an Acre of Diamonds, aren't they!  I thank God for having allowed me to be counted in their company.  Bill

Hello Strat, I made it here again.  The Lighthouse connection is fantastic.  The full circle of spies only confirms your uniquesness.  I knew there was something...  I love you, Brother; thanks for your friendship.

In the book, New River: The Jewel Of Onslow County,By Georgie Stone Wilson; she mentions Buzzard Island and quotes Mr.Hugh .Lewis as saying that his father once said that the floating island came from no where after a big storm. I was asked to speak to the Lions about our book (Jacksonville and Camp Lejeune) on Thursday,March 8,2012 and they shared their ideas about Buzzard Island with me.Tom Mattison is a River Keeper EmeritisofNerw Dr.Stratton C.Murrell

Hi Dr Murrell. I am always interested in anything to do with Onslow County, esp. old times. My father, Frederick Wiley Taylor was raised on Courthouse Bay. His father, Capt Matt Taylor, died in 1927 but his mother Rachel Caroline Sammons survived until the 1950's. It was a hard transition for her from wading around gathering oysters and growing her own vegetables to living in a small apartment in Wilmington. I am interested in the family histories of the population of Onslow Co, esp those who lived on what is now Camp Lejeune, and I have managed to find over 13000 of my relatives, living or dead. I hope I get to meet you at the Base Reunion coming up. Betsy Taylor Sergomassov
