This is the first time I've seen the article about Cliffside Day and Duke Power, and the quote about the first television isn't accurate. This isn't a problem for me, but I wanted to acknowledge it. Several of us were discussing watching television and figured out that it was the Brown family that had the first one. The Brown's lived next door, and so many fond memories were shared with others that. One of the highlights was meeting my first piano teacher again with her sons, Anita McFall. I have not lived in the area for a long time, but I visit family and friends in the area and treasure each time I'm there. It was a great day, and I hope there is another.
During the time i grew up in parts of North Carolina, Cliffside and Bostic were the fondest memories. Currently i am doing a track down of the schools and cities lived in between 1976 up to around 1999 where i am currently living in the low country of South Carolina.
My great grandparents raised their children in the Cliffside area.
They were Benjamin Mercer and Isabelle Mcelrath.
They were married there around 1913. They had 4 boys and 4 girls.
I will give you there exact names @ another time. They were all born
In Cliffside. The last of them passed away in 2008. His name was
Sylvestor Mercer known as Babe. He attended Haynes Grove Church in Cliffside and lived in Avondale. I will give you a complete history @ a later date. I am the family historian.
Sorry, this is a private entry which is only viewable by the owner.
I am the grand daughter of Broadus and Bernice Roberson and daughter of Rev. Roger Roberson. They owned a house on Dedmond Road. Broadus worked as a security guard at both the old and new cone mill until he retired at age 72, I think. Bernice retired from the mill also. Roger, their son and my dad was raised at Fairview Missionary Church and eventually became the pastor of that church until his death in 1997. I love this site. I'm going to go through my pictures and see what I have that I can send to this site. Thank you for the memories!
