Several days ago I published our latest Ocracoke Newsletter. It's a story about Arcade Williams. You may remember her from Walter Howard's account of the wreck of the steamboat "Home" (it happened in 1837). Old Kate was a colorful island character. You can read the April 15 newsletter here. The first part of the newsletter is a recounting of Walter's description of Old Kade. The last section is a newly published story told to me recently.
