My husbands family lived in Chapel Hill, Orange, Norch Carolina. His grandparents were Isham Alston/Austin and Hannah Taylor. His father, Henry Clay Alston/Austin moved to Winston-Salem, Forsyth, NC and married Dora Mae Berry of Kings Mountain, NC. They married in 1930 om Winston-Salem. She died in 1937 after giving birth to her 2nd child, Fred.
He died in 1941 at which time his oldest son, my husband, Henry Clay Alston/Austin, Jr. was in the Memorial Industrial School for Orphaned and Underpriviledged Children in Germanton, NC. where he was placed shortly after his mothers death. His father could not care for him and work odd jobs. Any assistance with this family would be greatly appreciated.
