“They lived about ten miles from Mulberry Grove at the village of Roxobel in Bertie County, where he practiced his profession. the house they lived in was built in 1814 and is still used as a home.” by John E. Tyler in the Feb. 2000 “King’s Landing”
they later moved to Marion AL and the doctor died suddenly late Dec 1844 or Jan 45 while on a visit to Mobile AL with his young son Richie.” [see letter] SMK

This painting looked down on me [Sally] as I slept when I was young as it was over the Mantle in the Long Room which was the girls’ room for my generation; the generation before, it had been the boys’ room
We think it was painted during the time she was a widow as she is dressed in dark gray.

Sallie Matilda Moore ca 1812 – 1865 | her parents
& 1836 Turner Paige Westray ca 1801 – 1868 | his parents

This is my working hypothesis – the way I see it as of this moment!!

married 3 May 1836 Turner Paige Westray ca 1801 – 14 May 1868 Nash Co NC
son of Samuel Westry of Nash Co and wife Sarah Bradford

  1. Samuel E. Westray 5 Nov 1838 – 15 Feb 1894

never married – but provided for three natural daughters in his will.

b. Daisy Bunting
c. Maggie Bunting

Sam Westray 1838-1894

Note: when Sam Westray died in 1894 his 7 first cousins [or their heirs] all shared in the estate – e.g. Dr. G C Moore’s share was 1/7 of the estate and each of his 7 children received $10,000, which was quite a sum of money in those days.
The money seems to have come from Sam E Westray’s extensive real-estate holdings. [Vick 342 ac tract in Nash Co, Wells & Bailey tract in Nash Co 140.5 ac., Boston Battle tract 58 acres, The California and Steam Mill Place in Edgecombe Co 1900 ac., Jones Place in town of Rocky Mount, Edgecombe 1.5 ac, lot in RM – Mrs. Annie Griffin Place, lot in RM known as Parker Well, lot in RM known as Westray open, lot in RM known as the Westray Brick Store lot, lot in RM known as the Davenport lot, tract of land near RM known as the Armstrong Place 39 ac, tract of land near RM known as Weston Place 98 acres, tract of land in Nash Co known as the John T Braswell Mill Tract 15 acres, lot in City of Wilmington known as the Commercial Hotel lot, lot in Wilmington known as Store No 15 lot, another known as Store No 13 lot, and another lot known as Store No 104 lot.

ghost story re Dr. Henry S LeVert

3 thoughts on “Emeline, Sallie, & Charles”

  1. Regarding “N W Fletcher had an uncle, a younger brother of his father, Matthew Myrick Fletcher also living in Perry Co, AL.”, I think Matthew Myrick Fletcher was the younger brother of Nathaniel Wyche Fletcher, not his uncle.

    Matthew Myrick Fletcher was a few years younger than Nathaniel Wyche Fletcher based on census records.

    Also, in “The Story of the Myricks” by Allie Goodwin Myrick Bowden, she lists the numerous descendants of Rachel Middleton Myrick Fletcher, who were referenced in her 21 Feb 1817 will recorded in Brunswick County VA on 28 Mar 1817.

    One line includes “Nathaniel Wyche Fletcher, Sarah E. M. Fletcher, Rebecca A. H. Fletcher, Matthew M. Fletcher”. I think these are the children of John Wyche Jr., who you have referenced – he married Rebecca Wyche.

  2. I am 2014-15 Grand Historian for the Grand Lodge F. & A.M. of Alabama.
    Your Dr. Fletcher (I believe) was Grand Mater of the Grand Lodge in the early 1800’s.
    Do you have anything about his burial?

    1. No, I do not. but suspect since it was early Jan. he was returned to Marion AL and buried in the garden of his home.
      If you find something more do let me know. SMK
