      In :"Kinfolk, Ownbey Family Lines of the Blue Ridge Mts of North Carolina" p 65 we read, "Just south of Old Fort, McDowell Co, NC stands Moffitt Hill where the Moffitt clans met for their annual reunion. They would build cabins, stay in them for a few days or weeks, then move on. A few days later, more kinfolks would move in. This was the time for catching up on the family matters, crops, swapping stories, gossip, looking for mates among the younger set. The Old Tabernacle Church below Black Mt was where the Moffitts went to vchurch
