      Oldest of twelve children. Moved to Caswell County in 1889

      North Carolina. See: The Heritage of Caswell County,

      The Association [Caswell County Historical Association] is
      most grateful to those who contributed to the furnishing of
      the Jailer's Quarters. Especially appealing was the Mebane
      collection of handmade and decorated baby-garments and
      other age costumes as well. The most outstanding article
      shown in the Children's Room was Mrs. Mebane's flannel
      petticoat. Obviously it is a genuine antique because the
      owner, Edna Watkins Mebane, is 101.
