    I think Ellenboro is about 11 miles southeast of Polkville with both little towns not being far the the county lines. Not too far especially if they live between the two towns for a buggy or wagon ride to sell goods in Polkville. I mentioned the Amish to a facebook friend who lives in NW Cleveland County and she said she sees them out in buggies all the time, I would say it is most likely to be the same group.

    Al, if you see anything else in the Budget about this settlement would please post it. I live about an hour and half away but have family in Shelby so visit the area fairly often. For those of us NC that enjoy learning about and visiting Amish communities this is great news.

      Patty, I still had several other copies of the June Budget newspaper, so looked at them and discovered that there is a scribe from Polkville who is regularly sending in news to The Budget. In their letter in the June 7 edition, they reported that the Polkville Amish community is a small settlement of 10 families and stretches for approximately 15 miles from one end to the other. That would be a long buggy ride! I will share other interesting news from Polkville when I learn of it.
