In Search of You is a web site to share information found researching my family ancestry line and collect additional information from YOU.
I have been researching my family since 1982. Many road blocks have gotten in the way.
What happened to some of my ancestors are mysteries I am trying to solve by initiating this In Search of You website.
In Search of Schools
In my in search of you, ancestors have shared the schools they attended as a child before integration and before school buses.
I am having very little luck finding Point Level School listed in Sampson County History. I have been told by too many people that the school they attend as a child on Wyre Branch Road in the Herring Township was named Point Level School. Only one person interviewed said the school name was Pinehurst. He first said it was Point Level then he corrected it several hours later after thinking about it and said the school name was Pinehurst.
A school named Pinehurst is listed in the Herring Township, but not Point Level. I have combed through the minutes of Sampson County Board of Education Minutes as early as 1887 and have found no mention of a school called Point Level.
Any information on Point Level School is welcomed.
The only place I found Point Level Grade School listed is in the book Images of America Sampson County on page 54. The picture below was taken Friday, January 20, 2012. As you can see the structure is standing, how long depends on the elements. The school is located on Wyre Branch Road in Sampson County.
In Search of you found in the pages of a family Bible.
Below is a page from the Bible of Inez Days Ross. It is full of family history. Some of the information would not be known if she had not taken the time to record it in her Bible.
This Bible is in the possession of Henry DeWayne Surles.
