Note: ens. Sometime in the early 1900s they left Moore County and in 1927 she moved to High Point NC with their four surviving children and began work at Commonwealth Mill there. In 1935 the mill moved to Randleman NC and so did the family. One of her stories she shared with her children and grandchildren concerned a grandparent and the Civil War. She referred to him only as pappy. her paternal grandfather was Bartis Hussey and her mother's father was Elias Garner both of these men would have been in their early twenties at the time so it could have been either one. Since she was repeating the story we have no verification. Still it is a good family story. Her account is "Pappy was in the bottom land plowing when the conscriptor came to get him. They went into the field and had him unhitch the mule from the plow which was left standing in the field. he was told to go to the house and tell his family good by while the mule was lead away in the opposite direction. Both went into war that day. He apparently was told where the mule was being taken. when the war ended he came home and then set out walking to the "mountains" were he reclaimed his mule and rode back to Moore County."
Note: Ina married Harrison H. Owens son of James H. and Martha Jane Scott Ow
