NANCE DUDE AT THE MACON COUNTY LIBRARY

 
Posted by Picasa
Last night (August 12th) I did a program on Nance Dude at the Macon County Library and showed the DVD. There was a "dialogue with the audience after the film and it is amazing that this tale continues to fascinate audiences. There was a good audience and a lot of provocative questions. Naturally, I forgot to take any pictures.

One of the most frequently asked questions is about the location of Nance Dude's grave. I visited it recently with a friend and we found it easily by turning of #441 at Wilmot and crossing the bridge. At the fork in the road, go right to the Bumgarner Cemetery. There is no tombstone ... just a marker with her name (misspelled)..Nancy Kerley. I understand that there is now a stone on Roberta's grave over in Haywood County.
