I am reserching the Carawan family line in Hyde County, NC. John Green Carawan was born 3/15/1865 and died 2/26/1950. He was married to Alice P. Lupton. Any information/pictures/etc would be great. Thanks - Andy Capps

My research is that John Green Carawan b. 1861 is the brother of my gr grandmother. John Green Carawan has the following children: Blanch, Hanoe, Addie, Olive, Rachal, Archie, Jay and Charlie.
Does this fit in with your research?

My great-grandfather was John (Jay) Green Carawan. Father of Royce (mackey) Carawan, Claudia, Linda, Shirley and Annette. My grandma Maw-Maw, was Claudia Ray Carawan Smithwick. Her mother was Elma Williams Carawan. I still remember walking into their house in Hyde Co and hearing him say HEY HONEY so loud, that as a child I wanted to cover my ears...lol. In third grade for Christmas I unwrapped my present and it was a cereal box. I tried to act excited until they told me to look and it was a pretty slip to wear under my best Sunday dress. Their orchard always smelled so amazing until the bees wanted to get me. I have so many memories I'd love to share. Until then, my final one will be...when Grandma Elma was in the hospital. It was the last time I saw her. I was 16. Just sitting with her, knowing she was going "home" soon. She told me something that shocked me beyond anything. She told me to take care of my baby. At that point, I didn't even know I was pregnant. Now my "baby" is 13. I'm married to my HS sweetheart, we have another child, a son, and Grandma Elma passed away two days after she told me that. Grandma and Papa Jay meant a lot to me and made a huge difference in my life. If I can share anything to help anyone else "live" through our family, please contact me.
