  1. My grandmother is Glora Anetta Hagans Bethea. Not too many people know of her as she left Wilson around the age of 30 and never went back. I’ve been told she spent the remainder of her life in FL. So awesome to see her in her high school photo as this is only the 2nd picture i’ve ever seen of her and I never got to meet her.

      1. I’m definitely so thankful to have been pointed to your site. I’ve been trying to find more information on her for years as she abandoned my father as a young child. My entire family has a very long history in Wilson. Are you able to talk more as I’d love to learn more about families in Wilson?
