Thanks so very much for this site. Your efforts to preserve NC history are exceptional and much appreciated. I found the site by chance when I did a search to show someone information about my "hometown". As I pulled up the images, there was an excellent photo of my grandfather, Claude Roe (Perley) Ramey, working in the T.N. Woodruff & Company "dye plant". My grandfather was at the left in the photo. The article was regarding NC exports and spoke of processing gaxax for the floral industry. I saw you had was some question as to the material the two men were working on. The basket contained clippings from boxwood shrubs that were being dumped into a vat of very hot dye and preservatives. The material was then dried, packaged and shipped (primarily to NY). Among other products, they produced wreaths and garland from white pine cuttings and various other natural floral material. However, in your narration, you committed an egregious error. My "hometown" is proud of its name Lowgap (not Low Gap as indicated in the article). We were far too poor to afford two capital letters on the sign! Thanks again for the site.

I love this site and the wealth of information about NC to be found here. I wonder if you've ever considered creating a badge to help other website or blog owners share your site? As a native North Carolinian, I'm always anxious to point my blog readers to great information about my home state. (In the meantime, I'll add a simple text link, but links that include graphics (as badges do) seem to get clicked much more often. Just a thought. Thanks for organizing all these wonderful anecdotes and articles!

How about a bio of George Garland Allen of Warrenton and New York?
He was a big wheel in the Duke empire and British American Tobacco Co.

How about a bio of Thomas Jefferson Green and his son Wharton Jackson Green of Warren County, NC?
They were quite some people.
