Meet the Author


The attachment to Randolph County runs deep within the veins of Lois Walls George and Paula Burson Lambert, cousins whose parents and grandparents grew up there and who descended from some of the county's first settlers. Their love for the county was born and nourished through the visits and long summer vacations they enjoyed with their grandparents. Their desire to preserve the history of the people brought about the connection with Wyner S. Phillips, a Randolph County native who also descended from early settlers. Phillips is president of the Randolph County Historical Museum, Inc.
