Terry, G. Cunningham. “Sir Walter Raleigh’s Lost Colony of Roanoke.” Blackwood’s Magazine 194 no. 1175 (Sept. 1913): 320-28.
Romanticized description of a visit to Robeson County, in the “‘backwynds’ of North Carolina’s Blue Ridge.” Describes John Cotsmuir, noting his Chaucerian speech, Saxon cross-bow, flint-lock musket, and Indian tomahawks. Croatans recount for Terry the traditions of their journey from Roanoke to Robeson County, the story of Virginia Dare, and the “two-storeyed stone houses, forts, and water wheels” built by their Indian ancestors with instruction from the English.
