Darrell was born on Ocracoke in 1933. He was the son of the late Claude and Annie O’Neal Dudley, and had homes in Ocracoke and Elizabeth City, NC. He died in 2007 at his home in Ocracoke.
In addition to operating Black Anchor Antiques & Collectibles, Darrel was a clock repairman. He and his brother, Ronald, donated a pendulum clock to one of Ocracoke's local non-profit organizations. He was also a member of the Ocracoke Masonic Lodge.

I could not locate any photos of the Black Anchor Antiques shop, but I recently took this photo of the building where it was located. It is now a private cottage.
Do any of our readers know where this building is located...and can anyone remember what other businesses or organizations have used it?
