UPCOMING SPEAKERS

July 27, 2017 – EARLY SCOTTISH SETTLERS IN MOORE COUNTY
Dr. Douglas F. Kelly, a foremost authority on the history of Scottish Settlers in North Carolina who has been published extensively, is a native of Lumberton, NC and a current resident of Carthage.  He has a BA from UNC-Chapel Hill and a Doctorate from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland.    Dr. Kelly will discuss the reasons so many Scottish people had for moving from Scotland’s Highlands and Western Isles to the North Carolina coast, starting in 1739 and continuing for the next 100 years. He will also describe their areas of settlement and their roles in Moore County’s early history.  Join us.  Refreshments will be served.
