  • Other, 1953: from Albemarle Annals, page 50: "The family of Mr. and Mrs. Manley Macon Respess, which long has blessed the Long Acre community, is remarkable. Mr. Respess died June 26, 1927, but the widow, Joanna Gurganus Respess, born November 28, 1863, daughter of evangelist Henry Smith Gurganus, was living December 20, 1953, when a feature article by Mary M. Toler appeared in the Raleigh News and Observer. Her family record then was a superb roster of numerals; 14 children, 44 grandchildren, 105 great-grandchildren, and 11 great-great-grandchildren. It was said: "Her happiness has been her ever growing family and her connection with the Christian Church. Each Sunday finds her at service in her church. 69 of her descendants and their spouses were members of the Christian Church."
