Lowry, D. F. “Recalls Lumbee Conference Formed Around Union Chapel.” Robesonian 9 Jan. 1958.
Letter mentions an upcoming trial on a land dispute between Union Chapel Holiness Methodist Church and the Lumbee Conference and gives background data on the dispute. Lowry states, “It has been discovered that a local group can never amount to anything. The Lumbee Conference is now 57 years old and smaller than it was 50 years ago. No race of people can survive in a local church group.” See also Lumbee River Conference of H.M.C. v. Locklear, 98 S.E.2d 453 (7 June 1957).
