Births Deaths Marriages, North Carolina, Oral History, Paternal Kin

“Your half-sister died.”

From one of my notebooks, circa 1987:

“LATE BREAKING NEWS — Daddy was at the cleaners when Mr. Barnes asked him if he knew his half-sister died. Half-sister? Yes. ‘Mike’ had a daughter who was an Adams.”


I don’t know how to even begin to follow this up or track her down. How old was she? Was Adams her maiden or married name? Did she live in Wilson? Did she die in Wilson?
