Hello, welcome to my home page! I was born and reared on Ocracoke Island. I left Ocracoke in 1963 and returned there to live in 1983. After fighting a loosing battle to preserve Ocracoke, I decided "you can't go home again" and gave up in 1996 and moved to Atlantic, NC. I chose Atlantic because it is one of the few places that has not been commercialized and over developed. My father was from Harkers Island and both of my daughters live in Carteret County so I am close to my family and still a short distance from Portsmouth Island, on which I have one of the leased historical homes through Cape Lookout National Seashore, my favorite place in the whole world.

I am working on names in Eastern North Carolina, Carteret, Craven, and Hyde Counties. I would like to share information with descendants of those that left Carteret County on a wagon train, bound for Ala. in 1823. Also would like to share information with anyone working on names of Portsmouth or Ocracoke Island, NC

  • Dora Anderson Miller descendant of Freed Slave (60 KB)
    Ellen, my name is Steven E. Miller and I believe that we are related through slavery. Let me explain... My great grandmother, Dora (Anderson) Miller, born abt.1867 in Henry County, Tennessee is the daughter of Sandy Anderson, born 1825 in Granville County, North Carolina. Sandy Anderson is listed on several 1800 census as a free mulatto. It is strongly believed that Sandy Anderson, among with a long list of free mulattoes descended from the fifteen slaves freed by John Fulcher in 1712. Here is a brief bio of my great grandmother Dora Anderson Miller, born June 1867 in Henry County, Tennessee, married George Miller in Chattanooga and died in Ohio in 1924. She was the daughter of Sandy Anderson who was born in Granville County, North Carolina, in 1825. She was apparently the descendant of Files (Phillis?) Anderson, born about 1785, who was listed in Sandy's household in the 1880 Henry County census. The Anderson family of Granville County was freed in 1712 by the Norfolk County, Virginia will of John Fulcher. Steven E. Miller, owner of the photo, can be contacted at: SEMcontrol@aol.com

    In the early days of shipping, there was no insurance to cover damages and loss of ships or cargo.

They would record such damages with the register of deeds, so as to protect themselves from being sued or imprisoned when returning to homeport. These protests are in most cases the only records of severe storms that hit our coast and of piracy at sea. These records have also been found in private journals, attorney's files, Colonial Records, and loose papers.
