Manning/Dunn Hyde County NC Genealogy

East Carolina Genealogy and more!

The Bishop family has been in Hyde County for a long time.

My Grandad James Fletcher Manning had a sister named Helen Price Manning. She married a David Verbal Bishop. Grandad gave them a piece of land and they had a old house that they lived in just up the road on the right hand side. I remember visiting Verbal Bishop and Aunt Price, as a young boy. Dad would walk us up the road to see them. Aunt P:rice never said alot but my memory of Verbal is that he was a nice fella who enjoyed talking to us kids. Aunt Price had Grandma Jennys old Spinning Wheel and her old antique cupboard. Dad tried to buy both from Aunt price but apparently (as the story goes) she was upset with Grandad and gave them away to someone outside the family. I would go a long way to retrive them but I am sure by this time they have been lost or disposed of...sad. If anyone knows their where-abouts please let me know ASAP!

Aunt Price's daughter Helen married a Clarence Norfleet Dunbar. I wonder if they ever had any children?

Having hunted for a goodly portion of my life I am always interested in hearing about the wild game population wherever I am. Many in Hyde County have said that there are alot of deer but they are all small. However, once I was riding up the road and looked over at Aunt price's house, and when I did an incredibly large bodied buck stood up and looked back at me before hastily leaving. Having taken many animals in my lifetime I gurantee that buck would have scored at least 150. Like Aunt Price and Verbal Bishop that buck is long gone now, but his offspring are still around! 

Aunt Price's house was eventually razed and a large warehouse now sits on that land.

I have a Cousin Cindy Larue Sawyer. She married a Gilbert Smithwick. Gilberts GGGGGrand mother was Lucinda Bishop (1803), daughter of William Bishop (1780). Gilbert Smithwick had a 1st Cousin (once removed) named Velma Smithwick. She and dad were sweethearts back in the day. There is a picture of her on the website in the Photos section.
