Note: Blacksmithing was essential, and the trade touched virtually every aspect of pioneer life. Families that settled in distant, remote corners of the mountains were often miles from the nearest blacksmith. Out of necessity, these remote, independent farmers learned the trade themselves, often using their own anvil and forge to make and repair tools and household items. Objects produced included shoes for mules, oxen and horses; farming tools like plows, rakes, and hoes; guns and traps for hunters; and general use items like axes, hammers, nails, pots, pans, utensils, and knives.

Note: My mother, Mary M. Campbell Ellis, told me that she remembered Uncle Did, although, she was only a little girl. She remembers him working on a wagon tongue. She recalled seeing his blacksmith shop and the forge with fire. Mom recalled watching him make the horse shoes & shoeing a horse.

Died: 22 Jan 1932, Hamptonville, Iredell, NC
