Wilson Advance, 1 August 1889.
Probably, in the 1880 census of Saratoga township, Wilson County: widow Farrby Pope, 50, living alone.
Fibie Pope filed for a widow’s pension on 14 November 1885.
Her husband, Nathan Pope, a native of Pitt County, enlisted at Washington, North Carolina, on 26 January 1864. He served in Company F, 37th Regiment, United States Colored Infantry, where he was appointed corporal. For a history of the company and a list of its officers and soldiers, see here.
[Sidenote: The Bank of Branch & Co., which put Mrs. Pope’s business in the street, was founded in Wilson and is the precursor to today’s megabank BB&T.]
