Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

Two Sally Cousins

Sally and Bennett in about 2003 And Sally and her husband Bennett probably at about the time they were married..

Beautiful Sally when she was a child..
My cousin Sally Anderson Warren Sally Jo and I were named after our grandmother Sallie Rogers Miller. My name was originally Sally and I changed it to Sallie and her name was originally Sallie and she changed it to Sally.
She knew so much of the family genealogy. This special lady was a women's ministry leader and a teacher for 23 years, She was the epitome of the word "Lady" We will all miss her.

Sally Jo (1917-2009) was certainly a person to emulate. She was always helping out with her Church, and she was a first grade teacher for 23 years. So many of her former students were at her 90th birthday party and this meant so much to her.

'She was very passionate about genealogy and history, holding lifetime membership in the Old Buncombe Genealogical Society. She was a charter member of the WNC Conference Historical Society, and a member of the Hugh Rogers Chapter of the DAR. Sally was also a lifetime member of the NCAE and North Carolina Retired Government Association.'
She was an inspiration to me.. She was active up until the end of her life..What a wonderful lady!
I am ever grateful to her for all the things she taught me, for the genealogy and photos she shared with me,
and for the stories and pride of family she shared.
We never visited her, however unexpected that she did not cook for us and or invite us to the beautiful cafeteria at Givens Estates where she treated us to a buffet lunch. She showed me how to copy photos at Office Depot.
She was writing her personal story (in her beautiful handwriting) for her descendants. She included photos!

She even went on a Missions Trip to a camp for underprivileged children when she was 89 years old.
I still have her letter somewhere describing with a chuckle, how difficult it was for a Senior Citizen to sleep on
the little youth beds at the camp.

Her childhood home in Hayesville was one of our favorite destinations when I was also a child. Once my sister and I stayed there for a protracted length of time, and shared the room with our cousin Betty. Sally's younger sister..
