Ocracoke Island's Chester Lynn




A great story via the Coastal Review Online by Pat Garber https://www.coastalreview.org/2018/02/coasts-people-chester-lynn/ part of a series called Our Coast's People with some very nice photos, as well. Enjoy it!

"...Lynn can trace his lineage back to two of the men who sailed with Blackbeard. One, Edward Salter, settled in Bath after his pirating days were over, and his descendents moved to Portsmouth Island. William Howard, who had been the quartermaster on Blackbeard’s ship, settled at Ocracoke..."
