Classification: Query
Both lived in Snow Creek and later Rocky Mount. African American. Julia Pullen Belcher, born around 1858, daughter of Merrick and Perlina Pullen, said to be of American Indian ancestry as well. Joseph, born around 1852, was a farmer and preacher, son of Joseph and Nancy Belcher.

Joseph S. Belcher died in 1928. Julia died around 1942. They had acres of land on Route 3/South Main Street. They had many children including Nannie, William, Mary, Sarah, Lula, Perlina, Walter, Thomas, Florence, Joe. Their son Earnest remained in Rocky Mount and was a master carpenter known to build many structures around town. Earnest died in 1959 walking across 220 & hit by a car. He was married to Ella Patterson. Rocky Mount family residents have gone;perhaps someone remembers them.

Our family is making plans to have a reunion in Rocky Mount next year (2013). We are looking for information/ stories on our ancestors, or new family connections.
