Jane Phillips: Man from Alaska visits site of ancestors capture on Wyse Fork battlefield

I answered the phone and it was Wilbur King on the other end. He had a gentleman in the restaurant that was from Alaska and was visiting Kinston because his great grandfather had been in the battle of Wyse Fork (on the eastern side of Lenoir County) and he had come to Kinston to see where his ancestor had fought in the Civil War. Wilbur told me the man was interested in purchasing a set of maps of the Wyse Fork Battlefield.
