   John Abner Rountree and Emily Jane Sanderlin Dudley Walker were married 15 September 1867.

   John Abner Rountree, son of Solomon Rountree and his wife Amelia Hudgins, was born 3 July 1833.  He departed this life 11 December 1899--age 66. He was a farmer. He served in the Confederate Army.

    Emily Jane Sanderlin, daughter of Dorsey Asa Sanderlin and his wife Lydia Walkup, was born in 11 Dec 1834 in Camden County, NC.  Emily Jane was reputed to be the belle of the tri-county ball the year she was sixteen.  Her family aspired a higher education for her, but she eloped that year with Stephen Dudley of Elizabeth City. Their son William was born in 1852 and Stephen Dudley died shortly thereafter. 
  
Emily married next Thomas Walker, a widower with 8 children some older than herself. 
 Thomas was born 13 Dec 1807 in Currituck Co, the son of John Walker and wife Sarah Northern [born 8 Jan 1775]. Thomas had two siblings: John Walker Jr and Fannie Ann Walker who was born 13 Feb 1809.
 Thomas Walker died 3 July 1865 leaving Emily Jane a  widow  for the second  time with three sons of her own plus four young step-sons to rear. 
    On 15 September 1867 she married for the third  time John Abner Rountree of Gates County.

   In May 1898, Emily Jane's son Beaurie Walker, the sailor, came to her home sick with small pox.  While nursing Beaurie Walker, Emily Jane caught the disease and died 16 June 1898 at the age of 64.  At her death bed request, Emily Jane's  body was interred beside her mother Lydia in a cemetery in Camden County. 
   John Abner Rountree died eighteen months later 11 Dec 1899 and was buried in the Rountree Cemetery in Gates County.

Two Witches----Grandmother told us that Living near her when she was a girl were two women known as "witches." These unforutnate women had both had out of wedlock children. Shunned by the community they both lost their sanity after their children grew up and left the area.
One kept two big sticks. A smaller one with which she beat her furniture to scare away the witches---a larger one for beating around out side the house for the same purpose.
The other had a special tattered outfit which she wore on court days to beg from the strangers coming to the county seat. This was quite profitable for her—but she never spent these coins but rather stowed them away in her little cabin. One day her house caught fire and burned—and there was all these great masses of melted coins!
Grandmother’s mother often would send Little Miss Emily Hortense with dinner to deliver to the old women. Grandmother said she was too scared to go alone & she would always wait on the road (out of sight of her mother) until someone came along & went with her.
