Wallace Spencer

Wallace Spencer (1912-2001) was a wonderful old-time Ocracoke character. One Sunday morning I heard him say, "I've got a mind to go to church today."

Then on reflection he added, "but I've two minds to go fishin'."

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is the story of Ocracoke and the War of 1812. You can read it here:
