7. Story. Carolina Pottery was established as Steed's Pottery in 1925 by C. L. Steed, who hired the potter Bud Luck and a second potter whose identity is unknown. In 1928, the pottery was operated by Joseph D. Steed, who then leased it to Lorenzo Cole in 1929. Lorenzo Cole (born 1871 - died 1931) was the son of the potter Evan Cole and the brother of the very well-known potter J. B. Cole. He was a journeyman potter who worked in many Seagrove-area potteries beginning in the late 1800s making utilitarian wares and was among the first to make the transition to art pottery. In fact, Lorenzo Cole is credited with convincing the Aumans in the 1920s to begin making art pottery, and he turned many of the well-known cobalt and lead glaze decorated pieces from the Auman shop. Wrenn Cole operated Carolina Pottery until 1932, at which time the shop was closed. (posted at worthpoint.com as part of a discussion of a piece of pottery for sale)

8. Story: Cole Potter ancestry. The first Cole family potter had been Raphard Cole, who worked in Steeds, in Montgomery County. Raphard's son, Evan, fathered J.B., Lorenzo (Wren), and Ruffin (who's son, Charles, eventually established his own pottery). J. B. learned his trade both at home and at several other potteries, including the Hiltons', some 75 miles away in the Catawba Valley. He undoubtedly knew the Aumans, because his brother, Wren, threw clay for C. R., and so probably knew Charles Masten too. (excerpt from "The Remarkable Potters of Seagrove" by Charlotte Vestal Brown)

9. Occupation: Farmer. 458

10. Occupation: Potter. 459,462
