Hello, I found this site while doing research on my grandmother. She was Elizabeth Hill Colvin but everyone called her Dee. She had the Tri-City Florist on Bridge Street. If there is anyone that might remember her and would like to share your thoughts, I'd really like to hear from you.
Thanks

Hi Kenny. My name is Rich Willis. I was born in Leaksville in 1953. My parents were Glenn & Doris Willis. They were both Navy/WAC veterans of WWII. My family lived in Leaksville for only 2 1/2 years. My dad was involved with a curb side drive in resturant in Leaksville before he went to work for Sealtest in Leaksville. Dad went to work in Winston Salem for Sealtest and we moved there, which was closer to our many relatives, which were from the Walnut Cove area. Due to dad's health and a promotion from Sealtest , dad moved his family to Plant City Florida when I was six. When I was entering high school in Plant City, I got a notice from the U.S. government that my birthplace had changed its name. Obviously this was before the Internet , so I wondered why for over a decade, until when I was 30 years old, I took my family on a N.C. vacation and decided to check out this place where I was born. When I got to Eden, I soon discovered that remnants of Leaksville were still apparent and that the name change did not go easy with most Leaksville folk. This impressed me very much. I talked to a guy at the Leaksville Hardware store, with sign still proudly on display, who said that he could tell by my accent that I was a Leaksville boy. Nice. My family and I went to the Eden newspaper office and I got more answers from a reporter there who said he was going to write a human interest story about " the Leaksville boy who came home 30 years later" . He sent me a short letter a few months later telling me that his editor didn't let him publish his story and that it had been nice to have met us. Anyway, I left Leaksville with a jar of red clay and rocks that I got below the Leaksville town road sign. I'm planning to return to Leaksville after I retire next year and research more. Thanks for your efforts to promote Leaksville .
Nice to see so many contributors, for all ages to look back on and see what was before our generation.

My dad, Elmo (Pete) Hundley, and grandfather, Jesse James Hundley, were from Leaksville. My mom, Molly Finch Hundley, taught at Burton Grove.


My dad, Oliver Patrick (Pat) Watson was from Leaksville.  He had two brothers Barney and Calvin.  I only remember once going to Leaksville to visit my grandmother when I was little.  Bell Watson – I look very much like her.  I remember my parents talking about the name of the town changing back in the 60’s.  I would love to reconnect with anyone that may have known my father.

Thanks, Wayne...Kenny

I am still around and graduated from Tri-City HS in 1955.  Leaksville no longer exists except in the form of a Ghost Town.  Makes me sick every time I go thru downtown Leaksville, remembering how it was the BOOM TOWN when I was growing up.  I am sure a lot of you remember if you are old enough.

Does anybody have pictures or articles on Spooky Hollow/Buffalo Beach? It started out as a Boy Scout swimming pool in in 1925. Then there was a Dnace Hall there which was shut down by Judge Lane in 1939 and then reopened later on as aa a night spot operated by Roberts Earles who had a clothing store downtown Leaksville. In 1933 there was auto wreck there that killed Gladys Odell. I would guess this is where Spooky Hollow came to known. It is said that at night a young girl could be seen thumbing there. I passed there many times late at night in the late 50's and early 60's and I have not seen her yet. The night spot burned down sometime after December 1961.

I grew up in Shiloh, but spent a lot of time in the "Tri-cities" Mom grew up on Glovenia St and Dad work for Karastan for 52 years. I have lived in Biloxi, Miss for the past 50 years but manage to get back home every few years. Still the charming town I loved.

Hello,
I have just published a book called "A Murder Before Eden." -- of course, "before Eden," it was "Leaksville." It is the true story of my great-grandfather's (Tom Pratt's) murder in 1947 at his home on Price Road. I know that anyone who has lived in Rockingham County for a long time, or a long time ago, will enjoy it as you will recognize names and events from the 1940s as well as the 1960s, when Ed Thompson was on a kidnap and murder spree and hiding out in Rockingham County. 
Please see my website www.amurderbeforeeden.com  to learn more, and thanks to everyone who informed me about the events at that time.

Really enjoyed the site.  I was born in �43 and roamed Leaksville and Spray growing up like it was my back yard.  My sister (Betty Jo Rogers) graduated from Leaksville High 48-49 year and played basketball.  I remember all her friends from the time I was 4.  When I was in Jr. High I couldn�t wait to get to the high school to play for Ray Rhodes and doggone if he didn�t leave for a job with the state the year before I got there.  Really miss the Tri-cities.  We were lucky to have grown up there.  My dad George Rogers was manager of  Colonial Stores while I was growing up and mother Myrtle worked at Allens Dept. store and later went with Belks until she was 83.  Spent hours on the site.  A lot of memories.  Thanks to you and everyone who had anything to do with the site.

what a great place to grow up. i credit any success i might have had in life to a high school math teacher -mrs. dininy at morehead h.s. i was pretty much a goof-off in school . i only wanted to play golf and blue grass music ; i had little time to do home work and was awful at math and any of the tough classes.but this little old fashioned lady would not put up with my lack of effort and made me stay in after school and do what was necessary to learn the material and pass the class.she would not accept any excuse i had for not doing my home work or proclaiming "i don't know how to do it,i don't understand". she made me stay every day and do the work and pass the test even if i had to football practice or a golf match. at that time i hated her with all that i had within me. she just would not take no for answer and literally broke my stuborn will. it was much later in life that i learned how much i loved that precious old fashioned lady and how she changed my life forever.                

i was out of high school almost 13 years before i went to college and you will never guess what my major was---- math! i want bore you with the details of my life , but my chosen professions as a professional golfer, commercial pilot and flight instructor would have never happened if it had not been for this great lady. i and all the other "moreheadites" that had her in our lives are " most richly blest".

Greetings!

My great grandfather, Dr. John Booker May, and my great-great grandfather, Dr. John Wilson May, had a farmstead near Stoneville before the Civil War. John Booker May was born May 2, 1842 in Leaksville, and his father, John Wilson May, was born January 29, 1816, also in Leaksville. My earlier May ancestors, Robert Booker May (1787-1855), was born near Leaksville; and John May (1757-1844), who was supposedly the first sheriff of Rockingham County, his commission signed by Gov. Caswell February 1, 1786, was also a member of the first Constitutional Convention in 1788 and an officer in the Revolutionary War.

Have you heard of the old burial ground known as �Wesley Chapel?� John May (1757-1844) and James Hunter May (1802-1846), also a doctor, are supposed to be buried there. My brother will be visiting the area in February, and it would be great to know where that burial site is. My great uncle visited the area in 1940, and at that time he spoke with Albert Wray who lived on the old May homestead during the years 1925-1940. 

Thank you for your work to maintain the historical records of the area. If there is any further information I can provide, please let me know.


 

What a great website for those of us from Leaksville.....I was born and raised there (class of 62) and will always call Leaksville home.

Hello,I am a bottle collector,and acquired a 1/2 pint milk bottle from the Meadow Dairies Leaksville  N.C..I live in Findlay Ohio and collect milk bottles. I know this bottle was made by the Lamb Glass Co of Mt. Vernon Ohio. I would guess the bottle was made some time in the late 30's  or 40's. Do you have any History on this dairy ??  Thanks,  Tom Brown

hey y'all wanted to comment on a photo of a community pump I saw in the Spray photos section----I believe I know It's more exact location based on the house in the photo, It's proximity to the pump and the curve of the road visable in the background..I believe it is the house of my Grandparents Emmet and Eva Grubbs at 712 Spring St.-- my mom used to point out where the old pump used to be....the house has been torn down in the last few years, but I played on that porch as a child, and could just about spot it anywhere...I'll see If I have some photos myself---- the other commenter would be right of course... Spring Street and Church do run right next to each other... but I believe it's the house that became 712 Spring... .............Charles Owens--

I have many fond memories growing up in Leaksville and graduating from Leaksvile High School in 1938. My husband played baseball with Leaksville after attending Elon College - where I met him. We left Leaksville in 1946 and moved to Asheboro where my husband was employedby Acme McCrary Co. My brother, Bill Armfield was the first mayor of Eden . I return to Eden occasionally to see my classmates.

Really enjoyed your Leaksville website, it really brought back a lot of great childhood memories.

I lived in Leaksville during the late 50�s and early 60�s with my father, sister and brothers on Prospect Ave, attended Burton Grove and was a member of  King Memorial Baptist Church and played at the Leaksville Boys Club.

I earned my first dollar @ 14 yo in Leaksville, working on Saturday�s in Bill Martin�s Shoe Shop on Washington Street( Mr. Martin was our neighbor and we drove to work in his 1949 Studebaker coupe).

While living in Leaksville during 1963, President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, TX. they made the announcement over the school intercom system and let us out of school early that day. I also recall coming home from church the following Sunday and watching on TV  the assassination of Lee Harvey Oswald by Jack Ruby.

Leaksville will always hold a special place for me.

Thanks so much for the great trip down memory lane.

Hi, I'm Patricia Seay, granddaughter of Jesse Gray Seay and Dove Pugh who resided in Leaksville, NC and in Danville (Schoolfield), Virginia. Jesse was a photographer by trade. After Dove Pugh passed, he married Carrar Via Hubbard and resided on "A" street in Leaksville in quite a large house. As they advanced in age, they built a smaller home behind the original house and resided there with Carrar's son - Obie Hubbard - until both passed.

Jesse Gray Seay was the son of Edward Thomas Seay and Mildred Gilley who resided in Leaksville, NC.

I am actively doing geneology research on the Seay's and would appreciate any tips of where I could obtain birth, death, and marriage records on Jesse, Dove, Carrar, Edward and Millie. Do you, by chance, have any tips on where I can get this information? Does Leaksville have any archived birth/death files? If so, where can I write for this information?

My Mother Caroline Clay Henson was born in 1909 in Leaksville to Nannie Tinsley Norman and John Walker Henson.  Any information about these people would be greatly appreciated.  Also, I had a cousin that I visited in the area (early 1950�s) named Janet Wilson her mother�s name was Esther or Clay Wilson.  They had a farm, and as children we used to visit and put one foot in VA and one foot in NC!!  I would love to locate this long lost cousin, she would most probably be in her 70�s, if still alive. Thank you for any help you can give me.

Hi. I was just visiting the website for Leaksville, at the encouragement of my cousin, Malcom Baker, who lives in LaBelle, FL.

There is a photo of my family submitted by Michelle Lee Grant, my first cousin once removed, of Dr. W.S. and Odessa Janney Crouch and family.

This is my father and mother and my sister and I as young children. I will enjoy perusing the site further to investigate family connections as my daddy was from Spray and my mother was from Leaksville.

Thank you for the information you have thus far compiled and the opportunity to share and enjoy it.

Yours truly,

Rebekah Crouch Covell, Ph.D.

I came across your website through a Google search, and it is magnificent! I was born in the Leaksville General Hospital in 1950 and spent most of my first six or seven years in Leaksville. My grandfather, Ira Craddock, was on the Leaksville police force, and I have heard many stories about me spending time with him in the Leaksville and Spray police stations when I was little. I was excited to find two photos of him on the site (he died in 1967.) My grandmother and my dad both worked in the Karastan mill, on different shifts, and I am told that one would leave me in the guard shack and the other would pick me up during the shift change. My grandparents lived on Irving Avenue and I fondly recall going to the movies on The Boulevard when I was little. My mom and dad are still in Eden -- Dad is 91 and Mom is 88, and I am sure they will know a lot of the people in the photos. I can't wait to show them to them the next time I am down there. Thank you so much for this website!

Love this site!  Learned about it just yesterday from my son Jay Howerton who lives in Greensboro.  I grew up in Draper and have wonderful memories of living in Eden.  Been away for many years, lived in NY, Fl, and Houston, Texas.  Husband and I are retired and love Texas so much we moved back here but I visit Eden several times a year.  I have many family members who are still there and we are very close.  This is terrific and what a great haloween treat for me to think back on the days of innocence and safety in a small town.  Thank you.

Intrigued to discover the existence of Leaksville whilst doing a Google search on one of my books. I've no idea whether your founder was a forebear of mine, but it's nice to have a town named after oneself anyway!

I've always wanted to colour in some of the space between New York and San Francisco, and the prospect of a visit to Leaksville is an added incentive.

Kindest regards

An interesting site.  I was born in Leaksville in 1947 at the old general hospital.  My father was a doctor in Leaksville and my family was involved in the Pace-Stone Furniture Company.  I live in Wilmington, moved here in January of 1949.  My parents, my grandparents on both sides,

An aunt and an Uncle are all buried in Lawson Cemetery at the marker PACE.  My father was Dr. Samuel E. Pace and my Uncle was Henry C. Pace, Jr.  I have an aunt, Elizabeth Pace that lives in Leaksville today and her son, William F. Pace and his wife Susan.  Many years ago, my Grandfather on my Mother�s side, David J. Moore was editor of the Leaksville News.

Sincerely yours,

I was commenting to someone how much I enjoyed the history calendar about Draper and had hoped to see the same thing about Leaksville and he told me about this site.  Thoroughly enjoyed this site.  I moved to Eden in 1997 when Parkdale took over the Unifi plant on HWY 87 and still live here.  One question that I have is where was the covered bridge located?  Look forward to your reply and take care.

Kenny,
 I really enjoyed looking at your web site,  I have not been back to Leaksville since I left in 1963 to join the USAF.  My family has lived in the Leaksville/Spray area off and on from 1940 till 1967 when my mother moved to the country when she remarried.  I have been back to the area several times but never had the time or a really good reason to go back there.
 
I may have moved a long way from there but I still remember my roots and cherish them.  I now live in Tucson Arizona and have since 1974.
 
The last place we lived was in Spray and Damron street, that is where we were when Dad died and I left for the service.

Great site!  I found it through links on an auction company website.  My grandma grew up in Leaksville, and it was nice to read the history.  I was born in 1971, so some of the pictures were still quite familiar to me.  Thanks for the memories and the history lesson!
