|Little Home Histories, Part 64 -- Anecdotes of Anna Doudna Sears and Henry Doudna.|
by Sears, William H.
See previous entry: Little Home Histories, Part 63 -- Copy of a Letter to Margaret Bailey -- John Doudna.
When Aunt Anna Doudna Sears was a young woman, one day she saw a strange man passing along through the field near their yard. She immediately thought he would be her husband. The man proved to be Peter Sears Sr. -- from Virginia -- who afterwards married her.
Uncle Henry Doudna did not come from North Carolina when the others came. He had not yet decided to come, although everything seemed to point that way.
"Even in the early morning
Uncle Henry, we have been told, walked back to North Carolina for the money ($800.00) when the farm there was sold. On his return trip, a neighbor took him part of the way, among people that did not know him. The money was wrapped up like a package, in some old thing. So anyone where he stayed at night would not know it to be of any value, Uncle Henry would casually throw it on the ground.
