Come and Meet Your Ancestors By: Wanda Lassiter, Curator The Museum of the Albemarle has been working on adding a few personal touches to its exhibits. With rotation changes of textiles to all of the exhibits, new information is also being added to the artifact identification labels and integrated into tours. In our main gallery, Our Story, artifacts will be moving in and out as required due to light sensitivity. New to Our Story is a nineteenth-century silk bonnet that was worn by Quaker Abigail Peele Jennett Outland, a member of the Rich Square Meeting in Northampton County. The Rich Square Monthly Meeting was organized in 1760 by Quakers living in Northampton, Edgecombe, and Hertford Counties. Abigail married Henry Thomas Outland Sr. in October 1870. According to reports, during the Civil War, Henry’s father was entered into the draft wheel several times, but his name was never drawn and he did not have to serve. Abigail died in 1932 and was buried at Cedar Grove Quaker Cemetery in Woodland, NC. Out to the Blue: Coast Guard Aviation was recently re-installed. There you can find artifacts in relation to Captain Bobby Wilks. He retired from the U.S. Coast Guard in 1986 with over 6,000 flight hours in 21 different types of aircraft. During his career he established a number of “firsts,” including being the first African American aviator in the Coast Guard. The jacket worn by Motor Machinist’s Mate Third Class Frank Spitzer during World War II is also on display. As a member of the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve, Spitzer patrolled the beaches of Dare County, NC during the War. Come and visit the Museum of the Albemarle to see these and other artifacts that tell the history of northeastern North Carolina. Failure is only the opportunity to begin again more intelligently. ~Henry Ford One thing which is common to all mankind is that we all fail. There isn’t one out there who hasn’t failed – some perhaps more than others. The people who rarely fail are usually the ones who never do anything. Thomas Edison, Walt Disney and Nelson Mandela share a common characteristic that distinguishes them from the rest of us. All three of them experienced the bitterness of failure prior to their great success in various fields. The same goes to every success story from ancient times until this very day. Failure forces us to analyze the purpose of our ambitions and identify any obstacles that many come in our way. Failure is the key towards learning from our mistakes. It may seem excruciating, but no one serves as a better teacher in life than failure. Failure and defeat are life’s greatest teachers. Through failure, we will be taught to plan fool-proof strategies to avoid future failures and build bridges towards success. In this process, we will be inevitably transformed into practical and pragmatic individuals who are capable of making wise decisions in life. Proverbs 24:16 For a righteous man may fall seven times And rise again, But the wicked shall fall by calamity. This verse means that no matter how many time that a man makes mistakes and no matter how many time that he sins God will forgive. Always remember that even our mistakes and their consequences will be shaped by God to our benefit. Be Enriched.
