My grandmother, Honor Nettie Herndon, was the cousin of Ellen “Nell” Herndon, daughter of Cdr William Lewis Herndon and wife of President Chester Arthur.

Sunday is the perfect day for me to post a rememberance of my Herndon ancestors because of the tragic death of Nell’s father. He went down with his ship just off the North Carolina coast during a hurricane. While I lived on Roanoke Sound in Manteo, North Carolina, I went through the first hurricane (Isabelle) in my life, and at that time thought about his tragic death. My heart was so full of sadness.
