Sam Page paying his bill
This letter was received by my grandfather, M.C. “Sam” Page of the Western Prong area of Whiteville. Earlier in his life, Sam did what was called “public work,” cutting right of ways through the woods in the area of Laurinburg to Wilmington, and in Beaufort. He later settled in the Western Prong area where his father, Rev. P.D. Page, lived. He worked as a farmer on his own farm and reared eight children with his wife, Mary Jane Gore Page.
Sam was very conscientious about his obligations, especially paying his bills on time.
