Return to Hyde County

The first issue of the Hyde County Messenger was published in May 1925 as a monthly by the Hyde County Baptist Churches to promote the interest of God and advance His kingdom's work, and to deepen the spiritual life of the church, home and entire community.  It was published by Rev. Elliot Rufus Stewart from 1925 to 1941.  Many of these issues are missing and are so noted.  This newspaper carried items of interest such as births, deaths, & marriages of local folks in Hyde County.  The Dare County Times began in 1935 in Manteo, NC and continued after 1947 as The Coastland Times which is still currently published.  It carries news from surrounding counties such as Hyde, Tyrrell and Currituck.

Some of these abstracts will be contradictory from one newspaper to another. Each individual researcher will have to be the one who decides what is correct or incorrect.   REMEMBER folks, everything you read in print is NOT the unadulterated truth!!  If you can add comments to one of these articles please let me know and Iíll include it and the source at the end of the articles.  Each entry will have (most of the time) the date of the newspaper in parenthesis following the article. The criteria for these postings are: the person had to be born, died, held office, buried, married, worked, lived, or otherwise affiliated with Hyde County.  I urge each of you to dig through your old shoe boxes or scrapbooks for any news articles or obituaries pertaining to Hyde County and e-mail them to Kay Midgett Sheppard.
