As many of you know, I enjoy preserving Ocracoke tales, stories, and history. Almost every day, it seems, I learn something new and interesting.
Today I received an email with some tantalizing tidbits about a somewhat obscure tale. The writer added this comment:
"All I know.....is that the two.....[fashionable] ladies who fetched up on Ocracoke [in the late 1800's] eloped.....and that it was just a dreadful family scandal -- the kind of thing that made old aunties swoon, but keeps family stories lively for the descendants."
Keep posted. Perhaps I'll share this whole story once I've collected all of the details.
