Recollections of Family in Stem
I just want to connect with you and tell you that my grandmother,
Jeffie Harward Roberts, her husband, Vassar Floyd Roberts, and
my father, Battle Victor Roberts, and my uncle, Lendon Hamlet Roberts, all lived in Stem, North Carolina in an area called Coon Hill. All three of them, as well as my mother, Nancy Holt Roberts, are buried at Stem Memorial Gardens. I believe that is the name of the cemetery in Stem where their remains rest. Vassar Roberts died in his twenties of the Spanish Influenza. My Granny, Jeffie Roberts raised my father, Battle and his brother, Lendon, with the help of the entire Stem community, with everyone swapping labor and goods. Later, many
people had to leave Stem when Camp Butner came into the area.
My grandmother and her family were among those who had to "pick
up stakes" and leave Stem. With family help, she and her widowed
sister-in-law, Leanna Veazy, with whom she lived, left Stem and
moved to what became 3002 Ross Road, Durham, North Carolina.
The house was rebuilt on the property the U. S. Govt. had a hand
in helping Granny and Aunt Leanna purchase. My Cousin, Richard
Veazey, and his family now live back in the Stem area. Richard
is my double third cousin. I visited Stem many, many, times
as a child, when I lived in Durham. None of our family lives
at the Durham address above.
