  • Notes 
    • In following up with Roger Manley's (Private Notes) Info. Thus far: I have found a Bell's Cotton Gin off Occoneechee Neck Rorth Rd. This is the last location seen of Rosemarie Person 15 years ago. - R. Finley, 07-16-2007

      Bell's Cotton Gin
      387 Occoneechee Neck North Rd, Jackson, NC
      (252) 583-2536


      Roger Manley, who now lives in France, was forwarded my inquiries from Tom Davenport. He reprts, "The last time I saw her she was living on Bell's Cotton Gin Road, north of a place called Mud Castle in Northampton County, NC. Bell's Cotton Gin still exists and is surrounded by members of the Bell family, most of whom
      know/knew the Person family, who lived just a quarter of a mile north of the gin.
      I don't know whether that part of the county is considered part of great Garysburg or greater Jackson.

      Another individual who may be better able to help you track down members of the Person family is Everett Adelman, who teaches art and runs something called the Four Sisters Gallery at North Carolina Wesleyan College in Rocky Mount,
      NC. His email address is eadelman@ncwc.edu.

      You can probably get his number from directory assistance or from the college.

      Hope this helps.
