John attended University of Georgia and graduated from the University of Alabama in 1933. He and Bernice, his wife of 60 years, shared a happy life with their daughter Lynn and grandson Mike in Virginia Beach where they moved in 1945.  John was owner and president of Carter-Bell Corporation for many years and was known and respected across Tidewater, Virginia, North Carolina and indeed much of the southeast, as he built about 2,500 Seven-Elevens for Southland Corporation in the 1960s and 1970s. In recent years he developed a number of neighborhoods, like Kemp Wood in Chesapeake, of which he was very proud.  After his wife passed, John retired and continued to enjoy hunting and fishing in all seasons. He traveled regularly in search of "the big ones" and usually caught them. He is sadly missed by his beloved daughter Lynn Carter HASHIAN and his beloved grandson John Michael BRUNER and Mike's wife Lisa of Virginia Beach and sister Grace GRIFFIN of Scott, Ga., and by his best friend and companion, Kathee Anderson CARTER of Knotts Island, N.C.  In accordance with John's request, his mortal body has been cremated and his ashes will be returned to his Georgia roots at a later date.

Alice Robert Poyner CREEKMORE
[Submitted by Andrew Theodore "Ted" Creekmore, Jr.]

Alice Robert Poyner Creekmore, Moyock NC-- January 2, 1904— Alice Creekmore, 24, died of childbirth.   She was the daughter of Robert Wilson Poyner (1814-1879) and Elizabeth Garrett (1838-1913).  Her father’s first wife was Emily Morse (1828-1861).     Alice was a lifelong resident of Moyock, and a member of Moyock Methodist Church.  Alice was the youngest of eleven children born to Robert Poyner.   They were raised on a 264 acre farm between Moyock and Beaver Dam Creek on Tulls Creek road.  It was called the Beaver Dam Farm.  Alice’s father died when she was 1 year old.  Little is known of her short life.  She was blessed with a strong Mother and family, and surely helped out on the farm.  She was the baby of 11 children, so one can imagine that she received “special” treatment.   

Some information about Alice and Hilary is available from a local newspaper.  The “Tar Heel” (Elizabeth City Newspaper) reported:

MOYOCK - On the evening of February 25 (1903) at eight o'clock, Moyock M.E. Church was the scene of a quiet but very pretty wedding, the contracting parties being Miss Alice Robert POYNER and Mr. William Hilary CREEKMORE, both of this place.  To strains of the Lohengrin wedding march, the couple approached the altar, the bride attended by Miss Bettie BURGESS of Shawboro, as Maid of Honor.  The groom was attended by Mr. Mark HATHAWAY as best man.  After Rev. J.Y. OLD had pronounced them man and wife, the whole party proceeded to the residence of the bride's mother, Mrs. POYNER. (Elizabeth Garrett Poyner).  Miss Una REESE presided at the organ in her usual accomplished manner.  Messrs. R.W. WILKEN and W.T. HOLT acted as ushers.  Both Miss POYNER and Mr. CREEKMORE are well known and popular in this vicinity. “

It is left to our imagination as to where the newlyweds lived.  However the “Tar Heel” reports that “A a violent rain storm of February 16, 1903 did much damage in Moyock.  The new house of Mr. Hillary CREEKMORE was lifted from the blocks and set down again some feet away with its brick destroyed. “We can only hope that Hilary got things repaired in time for the February 25 wedding.  

Alice was not blessed to know her wonderful son, her namesake, Allie Robert Creekmore.   Alice’s two older sisters, Aunt “Pinkie” and Aunt “Matt” would step in to help Hilary raise Allie.  The sisters never married, and were like mothers to Allie.  They passed on the rich Poyner traditions of their Mother.  Allie would be blessed with a wonderful family, and would marry Ruth Lilley from the Fentress, Virginia area.   Alice’s three grand children would be Joan C. Balance Bell (1934-2009), Frederick Hillary Creekmore (1937-- ) and Allie Robert Creekmore (1938--).  They would all be strong Christian people that loved Moyock and the Chesapeake area.   

Surviving are her husband William Hilary Creekmore (1877-1957), her son, Allie Robert Creekmore (1904-1978), her mother Elizabeth Garrett Poyner, sisters:  Adelia E Poyner West (1863-1920) married William Henry West, Laura Lorraine "Pinkie" Poyner (1867-1934), Mattie Elizabeth "Matt" Poyner (1872-1957); brothers: Jett Wilson Poyner (1870-1933) and Seth David Poyner (1876-1948);  four half-siblings: Martin Carney Poyner (1847-1906), Sarah F. Poyner Dozier (1850-1923) married Grandy F. Dozier, Robert James Poyner (1853-1933) was unmarried, and  Mary F. Poyner Lee (1859-? ) married Sheppard M. Lee.   She was predeceased by a sister, Ida Virginia "Jennie" Poyner Gregory (1868-1902) married William H. Gregory.

 Funeral Services were likely held at Moyock Methodist Church.  Burial was in the Poyner cemetery near Beaver Dam Creek.
