No Deaths and No Births in Stumpy Point in 1920

“Nothing for Undertakers and Doctors at Stumpy Point,” from the Messenger, Elizabeth City, N.C., January 14, 1921

According to A.G. Twiford of Stumpy Point, who was in town the other day, that thriving town offers no promising field for undertakers and doctors. There has been only one death in the place in over a year. No sickness to speak of during that time and nobody has been hurt. And due to the warm weather probably, the stork seems to have neglected the place altogether. Nobody is making home brew there so nobody gets drunk, there have been no disturbances there and the 250 inhabitants of the place have nothing exciting to entertain them, but the prospects for a profitable fishing season this Spring.
